President complains disgusting Twitters trending topics about him are never positive as Melania mocked for Rose Garden renovation

Donald Trump has complained that Twitter’s trending topics, which are frequently about him, are “disgusting” and “Really ridiculous, illegal, and, of course, very unfair!” At the time of writing, #TrumpVirus was among the list, with users coming together to denounce his handling of the coronavirus pandemic with the US on 4.43m cases and more than 150,000 deaths.

Plans by the first lady, Melania Trump, to revamp the White House Rose Garden and restore it to its Kennedy-era splendour have meanwhile been met with scorn, not least because the president is currently erecting a costly new “anti-climb” wall as a defence against hostile demonstrators against his administration.

On a factory visit to Durham, North Carolina, on Monday, Trump insisted he was not at risk of losing key battleground states to Democratic rival Joe Biden, despite unfavourable polling, citing the support he gets from flotillas in Florida as evidence of the fabled “silent majority” who support him on the sly.

The president also used his account overnight to paint a nightmarish picture of American life under Joe Biden, warning: “Markets would crash and cities would burn.”

Which rather overlooks the fact that his disastrous response to Covid-19 and the George Floyd protests mean such scenes have already taken place on his watch and a change of administration in November looks like the clear antidote.

Trump was also backing to promoting the controversial anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for coronavirus in a series of retweets, including a week-old one from the podcast hosted by his ex-chief strategist Steve Bannon that promoted an interview again discrediting the country’s top infectious diseases expert, Dr Anthony Fauci.
