President Donald Trump griped that Twitter's trending topics are always making him look bad, and his threat against the social media company was met with mockery.

The president hinted the government was looking into the tech giant's methods for promoting content after noticing that many of the posts about him seemed to be critical.

"Twitter makes sure that Trending on Twitter is anything bad, Fake or not, about President Donald Trump," he tweeted. "So obvious what they are doing. Being studied now!"

Trump and his children, along with many other Republicans, have long accused Twitter of stifling conservative voices, and he signed a May 28 executive order allowing the Federal Trade Commission to investigate complaints about political bias.
