Donald Trump

10 tweets politicians instantly regretted

Love them or hate them, President Donald Trump’s tweets get a lot of attention from the media and the public. They’ve also gotten him in trouble, prompting his staffers to try to limit his use.

As former FBI Director James Comey testifies in front of the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee about the alleged Russian interference into the 2016 election, Trump may even live tweet his thoughts during the testimony – which has many both cringing at the thought and waiting anxiously to see what happens.

Here are some tweets politicians sent that they either immediately regretted – or provoked public outrage or ridicule.
