Trump teases staying in White House after term is up, then wishes 'vicious critics' a Happy Father's Day

President Trump was on social media quite a lot over the weekend, and on Sunday morning he had a short burst of tweets sure to roil the Twitter waters.

Early in the day, he sent a shout-out to Fox's Pete Hegseth and quoted Fox & Friends talking about low turnout for "anti-Trump rallies" and calling him the "Greatest President since Ronald Reagan", setting up the later spate of tweets.

That later set began, as his Tweet bursts often do, with a shot at the New York Times and the Washington Post for being "the Enemy of the People," before moving into the idea that he should stick around past the end of a hypothetical second term, and then wrapping up wishing Happy Father's Day to all, including his "vicious critics." He said there are "fewer and fewer" of those critics, still referencing the previous Fox quotes.

"[A]t the end of 6 years, after America has been made GREAT again and I leave the beautiful White House (do you think the people would demand that I stay longer? KEEP AMERICA GREAT)" wrote Trump.

This is obviously designed specifically to invite some degree of hysterice (an invite that will be accepted), because Democrats have been fretting recently that he would refuse to leave office.

The "to the haters" style of tweet is a Trump classic, though.
