‘My President' trends as Trump fans go gaga over CPAC, Internet says Joe Biden 'not cult leader' like ex-POTUS
Donald Trump's much-anticipated speech at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is done. The one-and-a-half-hour speech was a typical campaign speech from the former president, tearing into the opposition. Trump also used his first public appearance post-presidency to rip apart the Joe Biden administration. He also said he "may even decide to beat them (Democrats) for a third time”.
Speaking to applause and cheers, Trump made many claims during his speech causing the term 'my president' to trend on Twitter. His speech was filled with claims about the election being stolen, causing the crowd to chant "you won". Despite criticism, the conference decided to go ahead and let Trump speak. Now, they are also facing criticism for hosting a 'superspreader event' with hundreds of supporters gathered together and few wearing face masks. Despite his election fraud claims being constantly debunked, Trump continued to talk about it anyway. That's when Twitter users decided to hijack the conversation. Shortly after "my president" started trending on Twitter, many tweets started using the term to refer to Biden.

'DONALD TRUMP IS MY PRESIDENT'
Trump's own Attorney General found no irregularities in the 2020 presidential election, yet Trump and his supporters continue to insist that Biden lost. In fact, many of his supporters still use the term 'President Trump' despite the fact that he is now a former president. Many from the Republican party also use the term to refer to Trump. Former US Ambassador to the UN. Nikki Haley, tweeted, "Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration" while others like Senator Lindsay Graham have the term in multiple TV appearances.
Washington Times columnist Tim Young was one of the many who called Trump 'my president' tweeting, "Trump is my President. If that hurts your feelings... good." Actor and comedian Terrence Williams also called Trump 'my president'. In a video on Twitter he said, "DONALD TRUMP IS MY PRESIDENT I was so happy when he walked on the CPAC stage! He is America’s True and Real Leader! President Trump is Back and I’m beyond excited Who’s With ME."
Another user called Trump the 'people's president', tweeting "I miss President Trump so much. He’ll forever be my president, the people’s president." Newsmax host Grant Stinchfield also tweeted support for Trump, saying, "Listening to President Trump I am here to announce... He is still my President!"

Twitter hijacks terms to refer to Biden
It didn't take long for Twitter users to hijack the conversation and start tweeting about Biden instead. Responding to the chants of "we love you", one user tweeted, "He's the president, not a cult leader. I respect him for all the work he's doing @POTUS is my president." Another user shared an image of Joe and Jill Biden, tweeting, "Thank God and every voter for My President. Life will be better." Yet another shared an image of former President Trump with Biden, saying "My President and My President."
One user shared an image of the Bidens with their dogs, tweeting, "Here’s My President, who doesn’t need the public adoration of a radicalized cult to feel like a man." Another shared a GIF saying, "My President is a true Patriot. Unlike the former guy he doesn't speak at Nazi conventions like CPAC."
