Donald Trump Addresses 'Worst and Most Vicious Critics' in His Father's Day Message
President Donald Trump took to Twitter his Father’s Day greeting to all dad’s out there, including his “worst and most vicious critics,” which came moments after he slammed the press for being “dishonest and deceitful.”
On Sunday, America’s president utilized his Twitter to spread the positive vibes during Father’s Day, even to those who didn’t wish him well. Getting over a hundred thousand likes, Trump’s post remains one of the few kind words he’s shared on the social media platform.
“Happy Father’s Day to all, including my worst and most vicious critics, of which there are fewer and fewer,” Trump wrote. “This is a FANTASTIC time to be an American! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
His greeting came shortly after the president slammed the media for being “dishonest” and deceitful” in a series of tweets. He called out the New York Times and the Washington Post for being a “disgrace to our Country” and “the Enemy of the People.”
In line with the celebration, Trump shared an inspirational message on Saturday praising father’s, which he called “Proclamation on Father’s Day.” The 73-year-old honored all men who grasped the duty of fatherhood with open arms. He said:
“We express our heartfelt love and appreciation to fathers, whether their children are by birth, adoption, or foster care, for the many sacrifices they have made to ensure that their children have every opportunity to reach their full potential in life.”
Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, also paid tribute to her father on Sunday through Twitter, which received a variety of backlash and criticism. The tweet included a brief introduction of Trump, boasting of the change he brought to America.
Her greeting came with a photo of her father and the first lady walking down an escalator, while Ivanka can be seen applauding for her father, on the side. Critics were quick to reply to her post, showing disagreement.
“Your father would rather golf with Lindsey Graham than hang out with any of his five children today #Priorities #FathersDay,” one tweet read.
Another tweet accused Trump of cheating on Ivanka’s mom, New York, and gold, adding scanned documents for further proof. Others simply placed emoji’s to show how they felt towards the first daughter’s tweet.
America’s president recently turned 73-years-old and reportedly celebrated with a “huge” birthday card from his team, which includes signatures from at least two million people on the card.
According to TMZ, subscribers of Trump and Mike Pence’s campaign were sent e-mails to sign a card for Trump’s birthday. The e-mail allegedly read:
“Our goal is to get 2 MILLION signatures to let President Trump know how thankful we are for his incredible leadership in our shared mission to Make America Great Again.”
