Today at around noon (Hong Kong time) US president Donald Trump posted a most baffling tweet - a feat for him - that sent the internet into overdrive. It wasn't an outrageous sentiment, spelling error or did-he-really-just-say-that?! moment this time ... not uncommon on this world leader's Twitter. It just ... really made no sense.
Of course, the internet being the internet, hilarity ensued soon after.

Wow ... still not deleted. Are we being trolled?

Yep! Still there!

The tweet is STILL there!
