Twitter users want President Donald Trump to “resign now.”

On Monday, the POTUS posted a cryptic message on social media announcing, “At the end of the 15-day period, we will make a decision as to which way we want to go!” One can’t tell what’s behind Trump’s enigmatic message, but his critics immediately linked it to his position.

Many responded that they couldn’t wait for two weeks to pass to see him out of the office. Several online users want him to resign immediately, with many urging the president to “resign now” on Twitter.

“Gonna need a hell of a lot more than 15 days…. Resign. Now. #COVIDIOT,”  @threesunrises wrote.

“You can resign now. Don’t wait 15 days,” @EricNed added.

“We already know which way we want to go. 15 days is too long to wait for you to RESIGN! Make the decision NOW! Quit, you incompetent boob. Save lives!! #DimwitDonnie,” @realMcare commented.

“WHY WAIT 15 DAYS? RESIGN NOW!!!!!” @trump_in_priso opined.

“You can resign now, we don't need to wait 15 days,” @Grandpa_Rufus wrote, agreeing with the rest.

 

This isn’t the first time Trump was called by online users to resign. A few days back, a clip of the president looking asleep during a coronavirus made the rounds online. Many were not happy after seeing it. One even commented that he was sleeping while on the job. The short video prompted several netizens to call out Trump and ask him to resign.

Meanwhile, the White House was not happy when broadcast networks CNN and MSNBC cut short their coverage of Trump’s briefing on Monday. White House Deputy Secretary called the two networks’ move “disgraceful” on social media. But Oliver Darcy, senior media reporter at CNN, responded by sharing what the network’s spokesperson said.

“If the White House wants to ask for time on the network, they should make an official request. Otherwise we will make our own editorial decisions,” he shared on Twitter.

Darcy added that the MSNBC spokesperson also told him that they cut away because the briefing was taking longer than expected and the information they heard no longer added value to the ongoing discussion on public health.
