  Fact check: Images claiming to show pro-Trump rally are from 2016 in Cleveland, 2018 in London Some viral photos claiming to show the pro-Trump rally that took place Saturday in D.C. are actually from a 2016 NBA championship parade in Cleveland.One viral post on Facebook claims to show the "million plus Trump supporters from all over the USA" who showed up at the event. USA TODAY requested comment from this user, and the post was subsequently deleted.

The relationship between the American president and the social network of which he is a fervent user is not simple. Friday, November 27, Donald Trump even worried about a "threat to national security", after a mocking hashtag rose to the top of the most discussed topics on the platform, called "trends", in several countries around the world, starting with the United States.

"Twitter displays 'trends' that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really hot in the world. They make them up, and they are always negative," the president tweeted, asking that "Section 230 be immediately abandoned ". This "section 230" refers to an excerpt from a law dating from 1996 according to which websites can not be prosecuted for content posted by users, summarizes The Independent (in English).

President Trump stays mostly out of view after election but is working, taking steps to, in part, poke Biden

  President Trump stays mostly out of view after election but is working, taking steps to, in part, poke Biden Trump has been mostly out of view since Election Day but is working: He is purging staff and pursuing actions designed in part to irk Joe Biden.President Donald Trump has stayed mostly out of public view in the two weeks since his election loss to Democrat Joe Biden. On nine of the 14 days since the Nov. 3 election, his daily schedule has been summed up in a single sentence: “The president has no public events scheduled" – the longest he has been out of public view since taking office in January 2017.

For purposes of National Security, Section 230 must be immediately terminated !!!

Twitter is sending out totally false “Trends” that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world. They make it up, and only negative “stuff”. Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to @FoxNews daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination!

If the president did not explicitly name the "trend" that is causing his anger, these accusations coincide with the explosion of the hashtag #DiaperDon , a mocking term drawing a parallel between the American president and a baby (and which one could translate by #DonaldEnCouche).

President Trump's defeat may give Supreme Court a rest from personal, policy lawsuits

  President Trump's defeat may give Supreme Court a rest from personal, policy lawsuits Many cases tied to Trump's policies or personal entanglements are likely to become moot or, at least, undeserving of the Supreme Court's attention.Even in the autumn of his presidency, little has changed. The administration came before the justices the week after Election Day in hopes of dismantling the Affordable Care Act, perhaps the most celebrated achievement of his predecessor. Later this month, it will defend its plan to exclude noncitizens from the census count used to apportion seats in the House of Representatives.

Trump attacks a journalist ... behind a small desk

It all started on Thursday, when the President of the United States, who continues to attribute the victory of his opponent Joe Biden to "massive fraud" during the election, attacked a journalist from Reuters who asked him if he ultimately intended to admit defeat. "I forbid you to speak to me in this tone. You are a bastard. Never speak to the president in this tone. I am the president of the United States. Never speak to the president in this tone," replied Donald Trump, seated behind a small wooden desk in the middle of the room.

It did not take more for Internet users to compare the president's stroke of blood to the crisis of a young child. By mid-afternoon Friday, #DiaperDon was in fifth place for the most talked about topics on Twitter in the United States, harboring many jokes and other hijackings. In third place was another hashtag referring to the President's anger, #TrumpTantrum.
