Trump's third-person address to himself did not go down well with a section of social media users, who called his tweet not only hilarious, but also "pathetic" and one bringing disrepute to the chair of President.

"Don’t you see how pathetic and needy that sounds? People all over the world are laughing at you, Donald. Laughing at your sad, desperate need for attention and praise," commented noted author Matthew Dicks.
