The photo garnered hundreds of thousands of likes, shares, and comments from his 67 million followers.
Jamelle Bouie, a columnist at the New York Times suggested that whoever “created this meme image of Trump as Rocky just wanted to show him as a powerful man.”
He added that Trump wanted to “present himself as such. But when you consider the racial politics of the film itself, it’s hard to imagine a more appropriate piece of political symbolism.”
Adam writes that “The Rocky films are a product of a sense of white pride and humiliation, and the desire to overcome it by restoring the proper order of things.”
You can say exactly the same for Trump himself. (end thread)

In another tweet Bouie said, “Adam writes that ‘The Rocky films are a product of a sense of white pride and humiliation, and the desire to overcome it by restoring the proper order of things.’ You can say exactly the same for Trump himself.”
There is no doubt that Donald Trump’s favorite social network is Twitter with the US president posting numerous tweets per day.
