Trump's 2013 tweet about Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth's split mistaken for recent post, many ask him to get his 'priorities straight'
In the age-old tweet, Trump told Miley Cyrus that she can "do much better" than actor Liam Hemsworth and so she should "remain strong."
An unearthed tweet from President Donald Trump from 2013 has gone viral after singer Miley Cyrus recently announced the end of her marriage with Australian actor Liam Hemsworth on Saturday, August 10.
The tweet was posted by the-then business mogul Trump after Cyrus broke off her engagement to Hemsworth back in September 2013. At the time, the tycoon showed support for the "Wrecking Ball" artist, urging her to find a better partner in the future.
"Don't worry about Liam. You can do much better and you have plenty of time—remain strong!" Trump tweeted directly to Miley, six years ago.
After the age-old tweet was dug up and reposted by a number of social media users, others on the platform mistook it as a tweet posted by Trump recently, after becoming the 45th president of the United States, which is not the case.
"I can't believe I live in an age where the president of the United States is tweeting at Miley about her break-up. Like what???" exclaimed one Twitter user.
Another wrote, "Don I'm so glad you have your priorities straight. Forget about the gun violence running rampant in this country or that Flint still doesn't have clean water."
A third mistaken user opined, "Don't you have a country too (sic) run into the ground? Pretty sure you gotta bigger things to worry about than trivial celebrity dating."
Although Trump has mostly restrained himself from publicly making comments about celebrity breakups after he took the Oval Office, he was known to frequently give his opinion on the personal life of celebrities until a few years ago.
For example, in 2012, after actors Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart broke up, Trump took the former's side in a series of tweets that are still available on his Twitter page.
“Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart,” Trump wrote in one of them. “She cheated on him like a dog and will do it again - just watch. He can do much better!”
Cyrus announced her split from her husband through a statement to People magazine via her publicist.
"Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what's best while they both focus on themselves and careers," the statement read. "They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy."
