#WouldorWouldnt: Trump's election meddling U-turn sends Twitter into a frenzy

#WouldorWouldnt: Trump's election meddling U-turn sends Twitter into a frenzy
It only took moments for memes to flood Twitter after Donald Trump backtracked on alleged Russian meddling, correcting a sentence in which he had stated that there was no reason why Russia would have interfered in the election.

The presidential U-turn, which he says was a simple case of using the word "would" when he meant "wouldn't," was almost immediately mocked online, with memes and jokes aplenty - many of which were posted with the hashtag #wouldorwouldnt.

Others used it as an excuse to take a jab at Trump with his own favorite phrase - "fake news."

Some also adopted his backtracking skills to say what they think about the president.

Trump's supporters were also the brunt of a lot of jokes.

And, in a totally predictable move, many found a way to blame Russia for it all.

In these uncertain times and with such a divisive political climate, it's good to know you can always count on Twitter.
