Trump Tweeted In 2014 That Country Needed ‘A President Who Isn’t A Laughing Stock’

U.S. President Donald Trump addresses the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly on September 25, 2018 in New York City. The United Nations General Assembly, or UNGA, is expected to attract 84 heads of state and 44 heads of government in New York City for a week of speeches, talks and high level diplomacy concerning global issues. New York City is under tight security for the annual event with dozens of road closures and thousands of security officers patrolling city streets and waterways.

When President Donald Trump was still only hinting at his intention to run for the highest office in the U.S. government, he told his social media followers that the country was in dire need of a firm leader who was able to show the rest of the world that America is the most powerful nation on earth.

“We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World,” Trump tweeted in August 2014, 10 months before he formally announced his candidacy. “We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect!”

As The Independent pointed out, this old tweet by the now president surfaced shortly after his U.N. speech was met with mocking laughter on Tuesday by more than a hundred and thirty heads of state and dozens of other delegations. The officials were laughing at Trump’s remarks that his administration has done more for the United States than almost any other in the country’s history.
