Published

on

President Donald Trump’s mental acuity was once again debated online after the leader of the free world sent a five-word tweet.

“Payroll Tax Cut plus Dollars!” Trump posted.

The tweet was apparently garbled enough that Twitter added a “translate” link, which displayed identical text when clicked.

The tweet was sent after White House chief of staff Mark Meadows failed to reach a deal with Speaker Nancy Pelosi on the next round of stimulus funding.

"This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN. Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!"

The report doesn't say that he or the White House suggested the idea, it reported that the South Dakota governor created a mock-up of Mt. Rushmore with Trump's face on it.
