President Donald Trump loves Twitter, and there is plenty of evidence to support that. But now, we have evidence that Twitteratees are equally fond of following the President. Trump’s first address to the joint session of Congress took Twitter by storm.

Trump sets a new Twitter record

The event became one of the most-tweeted, breaking the previous record of 2.6 million (Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech), said Twitter spokesman Nick Pacilio.

Within the speech, Twitter users took most notice of Trumps’s appeal to Congress in which he asked to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Another attraction point was when Trump said, “We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens,” and the third spot was taken by, “We all bleed the same blood. We all salute the same flag. And we are all made by the same God.”

In his first address to Congress, Trump addressed various issues such as Immigration reforms and the Kansas shooting. The President thinks that it is possible to have a positive immigration reform bill if the country continues to look into matters such as wages and improved jobs for Americans. Further, he wanted to ensure that the security of the nation is not compromised at any level.

Trump said, “If we are guided by the well-being of American citizens then I believe Republicans and Democrats can work together to achieve an outcome that has eluded our country for decades.”

Referencing the Kansas shooting, Trump said immigration rules are the only way the safety of the nation can be ensured. He stated that America does not support crime in any form, be it threats to Jewish centers or the Kansas shooting.

Trump rehearsing in limo goes viral

Apart from this speech, there was another video of Trump’s act on Tuesday that took Twitter by storm. His act of practicing the speech in his limo before delivering it went viral on Twitter, according to NDTV. Users took the opportunity to troll the President again.

Though some were impressed that Trump was actually going over his speech before his maiden address, most mocked the President.

One user said, “He studying his ABC’s.”

Another tweet called him a bad student, saying “like a child who did not do his homework and had to read of the script of the other kid to pass it off as his own.”
