Americans are heading to the polls today for the important midterm elections and over on Twitter, former Celebrity Apprentice host, Trump University founder, and sitting President of the United States Donald Trump continues to make his thoughts on the upcoming election known.
It's a pivotal time for our country, which — since the Home Alone 2 cameo-haver took office — has seen white nationalists storm the University of Virginia, countless shooting massacres, and one controversial Supreme Court nominee confirmed. Here are a few of the most jaw drooping tweets from President Trump himself...

Trump tweeted this message in association with an ad about Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who was convicted of murder. In the 30-second spot is a claim that Democrats let Bracamontes into the country "and let him stay." According to the New York Times, Bracamontes was deported by President Bill Clinton (a Democrat) and again by the George W. Bush administration. In addition to presenting a patently false claim, the ad was criticised for racism and drew comparisons to the 1988 Willie Hortan ad.

Watching the Dodgers/Red Sox final innings. It is amazing how a manager takes out a pitcher who is loose & dominating through almost 7 innings, Rich Hill of Dodgers, and brings in nervous reliever(s) who get shellacked. 4 run lead gone. Managers do it all the time, big mistake!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 28, 2018

Twitter has removed many people from my account and, more importantly, they have seemingly done something that makes it much harder to join - they have stifled growth to a point where it is obvious to all. A few weeks ago it was a Rocket Ship, now it is a Blimp! Total Bias?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 26, 2018
Trump tweets about his Twitter followers plateauing, despite having over 55 million followers.
