Donald Trump has no regrets over his so-called Twitter meltdown following President Barack Obama's re-election.
Trump took to the social media site on Wednesday in the aftermath of Obama's presidential election win over Republican Mitt Romney. He has been a vocal opponent of the Obama administration, and he continued his outspoken condemnation of Obama on Wednesday.
Trump ranted that Obama's re-election was a travesty, a total sham, and a disgusting injustice. He also urged Americans to march on Washington in protest against four more years of Democrat leadership.
Trump ranted, "Well, back to the drawing board! We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided! Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us. This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!"
"Our country is now in serious and unprecedented trouble...like never before," Trump tweeted. "Our nation is a once great nation divided! The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy. Hopefully the House of Representatives can hold our country together for four more years...stay strong and never give up! House of Representatives shouldn't give anything to Obama unless he terminates Obamacare."
Following Donald Trump's Twitter meltdown, NBC News anchor Brian Williams said: "Donald Trump, who has driven well past the last exit to relevance and veered into something closer to irresponsible here, is tweeting tonight."
But Donald Trump has since dismissed the criticism he has received from his rant: "Brian, if I'm 'well past the last exit to relevance' how come you spent so much time reading my tweets last night?" according to Business Week.
"The fact is that there's a large group of people who like Donald Trump and what Donald Trump says," he said. "I have no regrets."
"I've been well-received," Trump said, according to Business Week. "I will have way over 2 million Twitter followers shortly."
But whether his followers actually believe what he says or are simply along for the ride remains to be seen. One thing is clear, however, we can expect to see a lot more Donald Trump Twitter rants in the future, and if the past is any indicator, he still won't have any regrets.
