Nothing matters more to President Trump than being liked. Thus, it’s no wonder that on Wednesday evening, after facing backlash all day for his announcement that transgender individuals are now banned from serving in the military, Trump tried to distract his critics with a tweet completely unrelated to the issues he addressed earlier in the day.
Trump posted the following tweet on Wednesday evening and tried to take credit for Foxconn’s decision to build a factory in Wisconsin.
Thank you Foxconn, for investing $10 BILLION DOLLARS with the potential for up to 13K new jobs in Wisconsin! MadeInTheUSA??pic.twitter.com/jJghVeb63s

Trump’s attempt at creating a distraction didn’t go over very well with his followers, as is evidenced by the comments below.
Some reminded him that he has a history of outsourcing work for his own businesses.
Others pointed out the fact that he once promised to protect the LGBT community.
Meanwhile, some commenters left reminders of his past failures.
While plenty more just left comments expressing their general disdain for him.
