On Saturday evening, Republican President-elect Donald Trump followed up his “unpresidented” tweet about China’s seizure of a U.S. unmanned research vehicle with another poorly-typed tweet that sent Twitter jokesters into overdrive.
“We should tell China that we don’t want the drone they stole back.- let them keep it!” Trump posted after the final stop of his “Thank you” tour, which ended with a rally in Mobile, Alabama.
.@realDonaldTrump go to bed Donald.

Apparently not content to provoke the Asian superpower with calls to the Taiwanese president, Trump has decided that passive aggressive Twitter meltdowns are the way to really wind China up.

Tough guy Donald Snowflake Trump said let China keep the drone they stole. Meantime Obama gets the Chinese to agree to give it back. https://t.co/MkRluM2NSu

I was outraged this morning, but since I'm bigly bi-polar, let's tell China that we don't want that drone back. That would be #unpresidented
