Donald Trump is no stranger to Twitter, but nor is he a stranger to making mistakes from his popular account. Arguably his most-famous gaffe was his usage of the word "unpresidented" in December of 2016 when he seemed to mean "unprecedented." On February 25th, the president of the United States made another comment that could only invite some retorts. This time the retorts don't have to do with the president using a typo, but rather they have to do with the election results from November 2016.

Trump's counting skills may be off

Trump tweeted on Saturday from his verified account: "Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally.

It would be the biggest of them all!" (February 25th). The tweet seems to reference all of the anti-Trump protests that have risen up ever since Trump won the election back in early November. However, a point that has been made over and over again is that Trump didn't win the popular vote. He won the election through the college electoral system, but he did not have a numeric majority.

From this point of view it's understandable that there would be more people protesting against him than rallying in his favor. Accordingly, it's strange that the president would think that a rally in his name would be bigger than the rallies against him. Bernie Sanders was one politician that was quick to reply to Trump's tweet.

In a well-liked and often-retweeted Tweet, Sanders replied "They did. It wasn't" (February 25th).

Trump rally might reflect declining support

Not only did Trump not win the popular vote, but there's a legitimate question regarding how much those that supported him have regretted their decision since America voted in November.

The issue of voter remorse is a real one among Trump's former supporters and it may be reflected in Twitter as well. The @Trump_Regrets Twitter account had 168,000 followers early this month and it is now up to 248,000 followers and still growing. The account aims to retweet the tweets of Trump's followers or former supporters, tweets that suggest that many now regret voting for the current president.

How much support Trump has lost is debatable, but some of the issues former supporters have with Trump pertain to his positions on healthcare and sometimes juvenile behavior on social media.
