Donald Trump woke up Tuesday morning and decided that he would go on Twitter and rant about “anarchists” who threw paint on a statue in Manhattan while continuing to ignore Russia for reportedly paying a bounty for the killing U.S. military personnel overseas.
Trump tweeted out saying: “We are tracking down the two Anarchists who threw paint on the magnificent George Washington Statue in Manhattan. We have them on tape. They will be prosecuted and face 10 years in Prison based on the Monuments and Statues Act. Turn yourselves in now!”

Trump’s tweet drew backlash and many Twitter users pointed out that he seems more concerned about memorials to those who have passed and less so with living and breathing Americans serving their country.
Take a look at some of the responses below:
10 years for throwing red paint but Putin can kill as many American soldiers he wants with no repercussions. Fuck you, shambolic, syphilitic chode. #ResignNowTrump #TrumpMeltdown #TraitorInChief #TuesdayThoughts #TRE45ON #TuesdayMotivation pic.twitter.com/2fDRKkSW4X

Nobody gives a damn about stupid statues, Spanky. Why don't you track down the Russians who put bounties on our soldiers' heads?
All the rest of this statue bullshit is a PATHETIC distraction. RESIGN! #TRE45ON

They are facing 10 years in prison for throwing paint on a statue. You ignored a pandemic which has killed more than 127,000 Americans. Committed numerous crimes including treason. You should be locked up for life.
