The US President Donald Trump's recent tweet has taken the twitter by a storm. From memes, GIFs, graphics to snowflakes, twitterati has left no means to make fun of the President.
Trump tweeted “North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times. Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”
This was in response to the New Year address by the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that was intended to warn the US that he has a "nuclear button" on his table which later prompted a furious response from President Trump on Twitter.
Tensions remained escalated on the Korean Peninsula throughout 2017 with a series of missile tests conducted by the Pyongyang and the outrageous tweets clearly hinted that the nuke game is on for 2018.
While some users expressed concern over  openly discussing the use of catastrophic weapon on social media as it was against Twitter’s policy prohibiting threats of violence, others came forward to support the President and wrote that Mr. Kim, a dictator is responsible for global instability and widespread suffering of his own people, and thus  deserved to be insulted, not coddled.

This wasn’t the only tweet that was trolled.  A few second before the nuke tweet, Trump tweeted “I will be announcing the most dishonest and corrupt media awards of the year on Monday at 5 o'clock. Subject will cover dishonesty and bad reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!"
