Donald Trump was apparently too busy during his “executive time” to craft his own tweet condemning the “potential explosive devices” sent this week to Hillary and Bill Clinton’s home; former President Barack Obama’s office in Washington, D.C.; and CNN.
The White House did issue a statement condemning the bomb scares, but the president only personally acknowledged them by retweeting Pence’s tweet on the matter.
Many Twitter users found Trump’s retweet a sign that he lacks character (or since this is Twitter, “characters”).
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story indicated Trump had not released a statement on the bombings. In fact, the White House released a statement.
