US President Donald Trump's antics on Twitter are not new. On July 30, he retweeted a tweet and tried to take a dig at former president Barack Obama by saying: "We beat Obama 4 years ago, he worked harder than Crooked Hillary, and we’ll do it again!" His response came after a tweet said, "‘Divisive And Deeply Dishonest Campaign Speech’: Tucker Carlson Blasts Obama For Politicizing John Lewis Funeral." No sooner did Trump react to it, his tweet garnered more than 10,000 retweets and 36,500 likes at the time of writing.

This is not the first time Trump has tried to belittle Obama and the latter is not too content with Trump's decisions. Obama indirectly accused the administration of voter suppression during his eulogy for John Lewis on Thursday, July 30, accusing “those in power” of “targeting minorities”. Before departing the White House for Tampa, Florida on Friday, July 31, he spoke briefly to reporters and was asked for his reaction to Obama’s recent comments regarding the administration and voter suppression. As per  Independent's report, he said, “He did a bad job for minorities. I did much more for minorities than he did.” 

As expected, Trump's stance on beating Obama "four years ago" didn't go down too well with his followers on the micro-blogging platform. "You didn’t beat Obama 4 years ago. Obama wasn’t running four years ago. You’re either hallucinating, senile, drunk, or you’ve completely given up on life. Go seek counseling, you racist turd," one tweet said and another read, "Didn't Obama finish his two terms? I'm confused."



 

 



 

 



 

 

Not just that, there are several other tweets floating around on Twitter. "No, you never beat Obama! You never could and never will. You can’t even hold Obama’s jockstrap," one tweet read and another said, "We beat Obama 4 years ago" You know he didn't run for president then right?" Another tweet said, "He thinks he beat Obama 4 years ago. That perfect dementia score was a FAKE. Next thing he will be running against Abe Lincoln to prove he has been a better president. Will demand his own monument. #NeverTrump."



 

 



 

Mocking his tweet, one said, "Wait! You actually tweeted that you ran against Obama 4 years ago? #25thnow you have completely lost your damned mind. Please give the football to Pelosi and step aside." Another posted, "I know I’m repeating everyone, but maybe you need reminding. You didn’t beat Obama 4 years ago. Based on the popular vote you didn’t beat Hilary. Due to Electoral voting against popular vote you are (sadly) president. Person. Man. Woman. Camera. TV. Be cognitively there."



 

 



 

 

What's more, one even went on to say: "Are you on some kind of drugs? Beat Obama 4 yrs ago how? He was done his 2 terms 4 yrs ago. You didn’t have the gut to run against him after his first bc u knew he would beat ur fat ass hand down. That was the only good decision u’ve made in ur life." Moving on to Hillary, one said, "Hillary got more votes than you and did it after The FBI had announced an investigation into her several days before the election."
