Twitter Employees Are Confused Why Joe Biden Would Draw Comparison To Jimmy Carter

Twitter’s trending topics took issue with a post from Donald Trump Jr. which compared President Joe Biden to former President Jimmy Carter as opposed to Franklin D. Roosevelt.

“Biden isn’t the next FDR he’s the next Jimmy Carter,” Trump Jr. wrote, hours after a new jobs report Friday morning signaled a long, slow recovery ahead with missed expectations by 700,000 jobs added in April.

Twitter’s editorialized “trending topics” highlighted the post, branding users “confused” as if Trump Jr.’s tweet was a personal attack of character.

“People are confused by a Tweet from Donald Trump Jr., saying that President Biden isn’t the next FDR he’s the next Jimmy Carter,” the platform-publisher wrote, “given that former president Carter is a Nobel Peace Prize winner whose humanitarian record is largely respected.”

Trump Jr. published another post on the topic after Twitter began amplifying “confusion.”

“Anyone who is supposedly ‘confused,’ by my below tweet should probably read the awful Biden job report out today,” Trump Jr. wrote. “Then take a peek at the rising prices of raw materials that we’re seeing and then finally google ‘Jimmy Carter inflation’….Things will make a lot more sense to you!”

The report out Friday from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows about 266,000 new jobs were added for the month of April, far short of the million jobs predicted as millions of Americans rake in more on government assistance as opposed to an earned paycheck. School closings endorsed by the Biden administration meanwhile, have kept millions of working parents home, unable to re-join the workforce.

Generous government handouts combined with school closures ticked the unemployment rate up to 6.1 percent despite more jobs available this spring than there were in the days leading up to the pandemic last year.
