This Twitter account features Donald Trump as you’ve never seen him before
This version of Trump loves getting outside with his metal detector.
A parody Twitter account is bringing the world a different view of Donald J Trump – as a “nice” person.
Whether you agree with him or not, it’s safe to say that the 45th president’s social media exploits are a departure from the standard world leader approach of recognising national days and spreading good wishes.
Here’s a selection of his best/worst bits:
Mexico was just ranked the second deadliest country in the world, after only Syria. Drug trade is largely the cause. We will BUILD THE WALL!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2017
You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017
Congrats to our northern overachiever. You are a true beacon of hope for people around the world. Plus, you're always so nice! #Canada150— Donald J. Trump (@niceDonaIdTrump) July 1, 2017
Working hard this week with @FLOTUS on her effort to end cyber bullying! Immature name calling belongs in kindergarten, not online.— Donald J. Trump (@niceDonaIdTrump) June 29, 2017
To Muslim friends around the world: May the magic of Eid bring happiness in your life & may it fill your heart with wonders. #EidMubarak!— Donald J. Trump (@niceDonaIdTrump) June 25, 2017
The account praises police officers and citizens and imagines Trump indulging in walks around Camp David, metal detecting jaunts and watching Eurovision.
I do like my White's M6. It's a little quirky, and not the latest technology, but I find it decently accurate. Good all round detector. pic.twitter.com/P6A01clWUw— Donald J. Trump (@niceDonaIdTrump) June 11, 2017
Nathan from Austria is so cute. Upbeat song. Nice staging too. Quite enjoyed that #Eurovision— Donald J. Trump (@niceDonaIdTrump) May 13, 2017
The whimsical account was set up in December 2016, just before Trump’s inauguration, and is clearly going down well. It has more than 8,500 followers who engage with nice Trump on the platform.
