2020 is coming and there are many great Democratic contenders lining up to go against Trump. Trump’s approval ratings, in various areas, are declining. White nationalism is spreading around the world and has now even reared its ugly head in a country like New Zealand.

Trump’s video today, showcasing migrants as political pawns and as the ultimate enemy comes just one day after the most deadly anti-Muslim attacks on record in New Zealand; An attack that hit two different mosques in the town of Christchurch, leaving 49 people dead.

Here are some of the best replies from Twitter to Trump’s latest fake national emergency video:
