To Iranian President Rouhani: Another Trump tweet gets the meme treatment

Donald Trump has once again become a figure of fun online for a recent all-caps tweet to Iran’s president.

The US president’s tweet was a response to comments made by Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani about America’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear agreement between the two countries.

Rouhani told a gathering of diplomats: “America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”

Trump responded with a furious, all-caps tweet warning Rouhani to “never, ever threaten the United States again”.

The threatening tweet was interpreted with humour by some on Twitter, who used various forms of meme to make fun of the US president.

By far the most popular meme involved people using the tweet format to make other kinds of complaint, quote films and songs, or make jokes.

Others referenced Trump’s recent climbdown from his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He said he had misspoken when he said he saw no reason to believe Russia had interfered in the 2016 US presidential election.

Once again, the internet has proven its ability to turn any situation into a subject of fun.
