A day after Christmas and many celebrate the week-long holiday of Kwanzaa in honor of African heritage. After giving his thoughts on the holiday, Donald Trump faced instant mockery.

Trump on Kwanzaa

In recent weeks, Donald Trump has focused on using the term "Merry Christmas" as part of his theory that he helped end the so-called "assault" on the phrase as part of the alleged "War on Christmas." Despite Christmas celebrations taking place in millions of homes around the country, Trump and much of the right-wing media have pushed the narrative leading to the president sending out several tweets on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

On Tuesday, with Christmas now in the rear-view mirror, the celebration of Kwanzaa kicked off and will run until January 1. While not offering a routine tweet like he does with many other issues, the former host of "The Apprentice" sent out a pre-packaged statement about the holiday on December 26.

The celebration of Kwanzaa traditionally ends the year as a way to honor those with African heritage in the African-American community. In a statement released by the White House on Tuesday, Donald Trump made sure to say a few words.

"Today marks the first day of Kwanzaa, a week-long celebration of African American heritage and culture," Trump reportedly wrote.

"As families and friends join to light the Kinara, Melania and I extend our warmest wishes for a joyful holiday season and a prosperous year to come," Donald Trump continued. As expected, the reaction over the commander in chief's Kwanzaa message didn't go over very well with his critics, especially those on social media.

Instant reaction

Donald Trump's remarks about Kwanzaa wasn't convincing to many of those who oppose him, as Twitter users took time to give their opinion. "He didn’t write that. I bet you $100 bucks," one Twitter user wrote.

"There is no one who believes Trump wrote this himself or that he believes this, right?

If so, we might need to think about an IQ test for voters," another tweet added. "He's golfing. He didn't write this (no caps, no!!!).Good try, though," one Twitter user stated.

"The ever growing list of tweets that Trump did not write under his name goes this one," a follow-up tweet wrote.

"I think they already know what you think of them Donnie, cheap words from a cheap pres," yet another Twitter user added. The negative reaction continued as many didn't believe that the president wrote his own statement about Kwanzaa.
