At a recent rally in Ohio, US President Donald Trump wondered if he should be on the iconic Mount Rushmore. Expressing his displeasure with “fake news” agencies, the POTUS said the media would even report this joke by saying ‘he believes he should be on Mount Rushmore!’
“I’d ask whether or not you think I will someday be on Mount Rushmore, but, no — here’s the problem. If I did it joking, totally joking, having fun, the fake-news media will say, ‘He believes he should be on Mount Rushmore!’” POTUS said. “So I won’t say it, okay? I won’t say,” he stressed speaking before the crowd.
“But every president — they’ll say it anyway, you watch. ‘Trump thinks he should be on Mount Rushmore. Isn’t that terrible?” Trump added.
“Will I someday be on Mount Rushmore?”

But the fact that he mentioned such an idea, Netizens were not ready to cut some slack. Many argued sarcastically, that the idea of whether he might someday end up on Mount Rushmore has never come to his. While a few users on Twitter slammed him for his ‘desire’, others had found their fodder for a photoshop battle, and it’s brilliant.
