President Donald Trump has spent a large amount of time during his presidency voicing his opinions on Twitter.
Trump's Twitter audience, which now numbers over 84 million accounts, are greeted with a barrage of commentary from the president on topics that tend to focus on his perceived enemies, TV ratings, polling of GOP voters and Trump's perceived victimhood.
On Monday, however, Trump lashed out at the Twitter's trending topics, arguing that the conversation on the platform is unfavorable to him and even illegal.
"So disgusting to watch Twitter’s so-called 'Trending', where sooo many trends are about me, and never a good one," he whined. "They look for anything they can find, make it as bad as possible, and blow it up, trying to make it trend. Really ridiculous, illegal, and, of course, very unfair!
