Former Swedish Prime Minister and current co-chair of the European Council on Foreign Relations Carl Bildt took to Twitter this weekend to slam Trump for his haphazard use of the social media platform.
I guess Donald Trump is now preparing to launch a tweet. It will lift off in smoke and fire, and then with a roar disappear into nowhere.

While Trump had promised to be more “restrained” on Twitter prior to taking office, the President has used his platform to slam the media, our allies, and even members of his own party who have failed to fall in line with his draconian agenda.

Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a non-factor in Senate. He's toxic!

Bildt’s tweet is evidence enough that while Trump may consider himself the second most “presidential” Commander-in-Chief behind Abraham Lincoln, outside of his loyalist bubble, he is nothing more than an international laughing stock.
