Donald Trump not only writes tweets, also eliminates them. He usually does it for a typo. But this Wednesday he did it to clear the evidence of his support for the candidacy of Senator of Luther Strange, a Republican from Alabama who he defended so explicitly that last Friday he traveled to the state to give a speech in his favor.
After removing them from his account, Trump, unscrupulous, wrote two messages congratulating the opponent of Strange, Roy Moore, with whom he spoke for the first time today. "Luther started off with a lot of fun and did well." Roy Moore seems to be a fantastic guy who made a fantastic campaign. "It will help us make America great again!", the president sentenced.
Although Trump had already said that he would support the winner of the primary election to defeat the Democrats, the gesture reflects how quickly the Republican changes his loyalties. Although something like eliminating some tweets may seem like an action made with lightness, reveals what Trump has said many times: he only likes people who "win". On one occasion, the president criticized war veteran and U.S. Senator John McCain for his capture during the Vietnam war.
Both the White House and the Republican leaders of the Senate had backed Strange against Moore, a figure associated with the most radical right and whose candidacy had been supported by Steve Bannon, the agitator who served as the advisor and strategist of Trump until recently More than a month. The primary outcome will force them to defend an uncomfortable figure for the establishment if they do not want to lose a seat for their party in the Senate.
