'Must be Opposite Day': Twitter promptly debunks Trump’s claim 'nobody laughed' at U.S. when he was president

Former President Donald Trump used a portion of his Waco, Texas rally speech Saturday to insist "nobody laughed" at the United States of America during his presidency.

@Acyn shared a clip from the former president's address, writing, "Trump: Nobody laughed at our country when I ran it."

Subsequently, Twitter users — from all over the world — immediately debunked the former's claim citing ample amounts of evidence.

In addition to claiming no one laughed at the U.S. under his leadership, Trump also said Florida Governor Ron DeSantis "came to him with tears in his eyes begging him for an endorsement," and he falsely claimed — as he has many times before — President Joe Biden lost the 2020 election, "but it was rigged."
