The president was trolled after tweeting that moon is part of Mars. “Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too,” tweeted American runner Ryan Hill.
He left people astonished with his knowledge of space and universe and become a laughing stock again. In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”
Remark from the president came after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.
As soon as he tweeted the world started trolling him with one-liners and memes. “Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backward for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.
“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, a national security analyst at CNN.
