Washington, June 25: United States President Donald Trump, known for impulsive use of Twitter, drew ridicule on Tuesday after he thanked himself the surge in US Stock Market. Social media users were quick to roast "Mr President", asking him whether he was acknowledging the efforts taken by his predecessor Barack Obama.
"Stock Market is heading for one of the best months (June) in the history of our Country. Thank you Mr. President! (sic)," Trump tweeted, crediting himself for the series of uptick in the securities and commodities market. Trump Imposes 'Hard-Hitting' Sanctions Against Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei

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.

Is Obama Being Credited?
Thank you, President Obama, for your herculean feat of pulling our economy out of the ditch, pushing it WAAAAAY up the hill, and making it so strong that even a grifting moron like trump, with five bankruptcies, couldn't screw it up. #ThanksObama pic.twitter.com/ISNsQRlNTh

'Absolutely, Thank You Obama'
Absolutely. Thank you Barack Obama for fixing our economy when a Republican destroyed it.
And thank you Barack Obama for fixing it so well that a dumbfuck could be the president and not screw it up.
Donald, you are the dumbfuck.

President Usurping Corporate America's Success?
Shouldn’t you be thanking those who produce the values sold by the companies traded in the Stock Market?
If it is you, primarily, who is responsible for high stock market prices, we shouldn’t be thankful, but instead worried. No politician should have that much power.

Apart from the upswing of Stocks Market, Trump had earlier credited himself for upsurge in employment, growth in industrial sector and balancing the trade deficit.
Trump, meanwhile, has officially launched his campaign for re-election in 2020. The Democrats have over 11 major aspirants in the race so far, with Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden tipped ahead in the race.
