Today, President Donald Trump tweeted.
For a long time, reporters have debated whether his tweets, which range from offensive to shocking, are worth covering. The ultimate conclusion has been that yeah, they are. Today’s is, too, then. Today’s tweet just said “We.”
Was it a typo? Perhaps a unifying message of oneness and hope? We may never know because it’s been deleted now and a new one advertising his upcoming interview on Fox News has sprung up in its place.
All we can do is speculate and remember:

@realDonaldTrump @JudgeJeanine @FoxNews Your original tweet was MUCH better (and more coherent!) pic.twitter.com/xCFqpO2pIj

@Travon It probably still feels weird for him to start a sentence with “we” instead of “I”

Some have coopted “we,” hashtagged it, and turned it on the president.
