Twitter users are mocking former president Donald Trump following his latest Truth Social post, Huffpost reports.

Trump, who is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice, among other entities, posted: “Importantly, I have single-handedly shown the American Public how Crooked and Corrupt our Government is. NOW WE CAN FIX IT!”

Former federal prosecutor and Republican Ron Filipkowski started the chain of reactions by tweeting a screenshot of Trump’s post along with a sarcastic jab at the former president: “He certainly did that every single day he was in office."
