Social media swiftly reacted Monday night when President Trump updated his Twitter header to include a superimposed image of one of his tweets from just hours before.
"Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows- there is 'no evidence' of collusion w/ Russia and Trump," Trump tweeted earlier Monday evening, downplaying Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's Monday testimony before a Senate panel investigating Russian interference in the presidential election.
Clapper said at the hearing that there is “no evidence” of collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia, which Trump called "old news" in another tweet.
The heading above his Twitter profile now includes the tweet above an image of lawmakers giving thumbs up signs surround the president in the Oval Office.
