Oops: Twitter “sorry” for allowing “Die Trump” to trend on social media

Twitter has officially apologized for allowing a hashtag to trend in the nation of Turkey that translates to “Die Trump,” according to The DailyMail.

The trend came after President Donald Trump announced that the United States would be removing the remainder of our troops from northern Syria, and warned that if the Turks get out of line after the troop withdrawal he would “destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey.”

“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 the captured ISIS fighters and families.

“The U.S. has done far more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. It is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory. THE USA IS GREAT!”

“#MahvolursunTrump” began trending on Twitter Monday shortly after Trump threatened the Turkish economy.

“This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we’re sorry for this mistake,” a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to DailyMail.com.

Trump’s objectionable tweet came just hours after he announced the troop withdrawal and Republicans retaliated, saying it was an Obama-like move, and that it would be bad for our allies in the region.

“The United States was supposed to be in Syria for 30 days, that was many years ago,” Trump tweeted before the workday started on Monday. “We stayed and got deeper and deeper into battle with no aim in sight. When I arrived in Washington, ISIS was running rampant in the area. We quickly defeated 100% of the ISIS Caliphate, including capturing thousands of ISIS fighters, mostly from Europe. But Europe did not want them back, they said you keep them USA! I said “NO, we did you a great favor and now you want us to hold them in U.S. prisons at tremendous cost. They are yours for trials.”
