After backing Luther Strange to the hilt via twitter the President has NOW deleted his supportive tweets following Luther Strange 's defeat yesterday in the Alabama primary.
"Big election tomorrow in the Great State of Alabama. Vote for Senator Luther Strange, tough on crime & border - will never let you down!"...Gone
"Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement," ... Gone
"ALABAMA, get out and vote for Luther Strange - he has proven to me that he will never let you down! #MAGA"... Gone

After enthusiastically endorsing an Alabama senator’s campaign for re-election, President Trump distanced himself on Tuesday night from the candidate’s loss in the most Trumpian way possible: He deleted his supportive tweets.
Hours after Senator Luther Strange, a Republican from Alabama, lost in Tuesday’s primary runoff, Mr. Trump excised at least three favorable Twitter posts, including one sent Tuesday morning. In that tweet, posted as the polls in Alabama opened, the president boasted that Mr. Strange “has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement.”

Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement.


Of all people, you’d expect President Trump to know the polls are very fake news.

Buffoon.

I wonder if his endorsement caused the true silent majority to actually get out and vote.

Dotard Trump is so caught up in appearances, and having to be seen as having been the one who always backs winners, he can't even say he stood on principle in his support for Strange and regrets that the best man for the job didn't win!

Haven't people learned that you will draw more attention to yourself by deleting tweets and social media posts, than you would if you just let them be?

The jokes on all of us though — of the two, Strange was almost certainly the lesser of two evils and it's near impossible to believe that whoever won the runoff isn't going to beat the Democrat.

The way I understand it he confused his core supporters by backing Strange who I believe is considered a swamp dweller , I think the negative reaction from Republicans and Trump's former inner circle member Steve Bannon and others reflected that.

Yeah , he's trying to rewrite history , The Donald only backs winners because he's a winner so backing a loser is a bit inconvenient.

"Trumpian way"

Trump believes he can create his own revisionist history. He has never backed a loser. Nope. Not at all. He has a pristine, unaltered Twitter feed to prove it!

Agreed. The obsession is pretty funny. Slow news day...lets write about Trumps Tweets....or deleted tweets....great reporting and journalism....hard to believe any self respecting journalist would even give thought to the idea of writing about a tweet.

Really ?
The President of the United States had a bit of an Ooops moment and instead of doing what any honorable person would do and accept it happened and move on he deletes the evidence .... like no one would notice.

Pretty shady action but I'm not surprised some will defend him regardless.

What?! His tweets have escalated the NK situation and made the number of kneelers soar from a paltry dozen to hundreds.

Trump's endorsing Luther Strange never made much sense to begin with. Strange is the establishment favorite, which pretty much by definition makes him a swamp creature. Roy Moore is the guy Trump's supporters favored all along.

My read is, Trump was pushed to support Luther by Senate Republicans. He started backing off toward the end.

Apparently his daughter and Kushner was the push for him to support Strange!

It's absolutely amazing (read: saddening) that Trump's supporters cannot recognize that he is an immature, egocentric, man-child. And I'm using egocentric in the official capacity. As in the stage of childhood development, that most move past in infancy, where the individual is unable to recognize the world exists beyond their perception.

This is the equivalent of a little boy sneaking a cookie, breaking the cookie jar by mistake, and then duct-taping it back together.

When the mother notices and points it out, all of you say "Why is his mother so obsessed about cookies"?!
