President Trump is no stranger to low approval ratings. That's just a number, however — it's tough to gauge from a figure exactly what everyday Americans think about him. But on Monday, after the GOP invited Americans to sign Trump's Presidents' Day card online, Twitter went haywire with responses that shared current opinions of the president. The majority were... not kind.
"Under President Trump, a new American era is on the rise — thanks to YOU, the men and women who have stood by him through thick and thin," the website read. "Sign the card and leave a note to wish President Trump a GREAT Presidents' Day this Monday!"
As some people noted, there was no field to leave a custom message. That led to some rude responses — more than 1,300 responses total. The Florida GOP sent out a similar call, and one user responded with perhaps the harshest criticism of them all: "@realDonaldTrump shows no respect for our community in mourning, golfing & parties at Mar-A-Lago. Is he celebrating mass murder? Shame on him and you," wrote Twitter user @horassonang.
Not all of the responses were that harsh. But for many Americans, it's clear that celebrating Trump with past presidents like George Washington or Abraham Lincoln is unacceptable.
"Which Country's President?" Was Also A Question
Maybe they should see how many bots signed the card.
Some Wished The Other Presidents Well
Trump is #45 — though technically, thanks to Grover Cleveland, there've only been 44 American presidents in total.
Simple, But Still Not Sweet
When the hashtags hurt...
Surely more people followed the GOP's call to sign the card than responded with insults. More than 1,500 liked the tweet — more than the total responses.
But given their originality, the responses do offer a window into how many Americans feel about the president — even on a holiday honoring him and his predecessors.
