Donald Trump's son urges people to vote... a week after election

eric-trump

Donald Trump's son Eric Trump is facing social media's ridicule for urging people to vote in the 2020 US Presidential Election - a week after the election concluded.


In a tweet shared Tuesday - and has since been deleted - Eric Trump urged people in Minnesota to "get out and vote". The post was deleted within minutes, but nothing ever goes unnoticed on social media - especially if it comes from Donald Trump's second eldest son. Within a few hours, screenshots of the tweet were going viral on the microblogging platform.

The faux-pas drew comparisons with Internet Explorer - Microsoft's browser that is notorious for its slow performance.

On Election Day, Eric Trump had posted a series of similar tweets, urging people to vote. This gave rise to speculation that his Minnesota tweet was probably a scheduling error.

Still, Twitter is not a place that forgives easily, and Mr Trump quickly became the subject of much trolling for his ill-timed tweet.

Television personality Padma Lakshmi was among those who mocked the tweet.

US President Donald Trump has called the election "a fraud on the American people" by his rival Democrats and refused to concede. President-elect Joe Biden on Tuesday called President Donald Trump's refusal to concede his election loss an "embarrassment" but dismissed the standoff as unimportant, according to news agency AFP.
