President Donald Trump went on a Twitter spree on Monday, warning Turkey not to do anything he considers to be “off limits.”
Though his tweet appears to be tensed and serious, POTUS also described himself to possess “great and unmatched wisdom” in the post.
His message was not received as anticipated, as Twitter users started drawing parallels between Trump’s quote and a similar line from the Wizard of Oz.
As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over...— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 7, 2019
It was in the hyperbolic phrasing and the way he had described himself that spurred users to bring up the iconic music musical.
Take a look at some of the reactions to Trump’s statement below.
