‘Did He Just Resign?’: Twitter Upside Down as State Department Appears to ‘End Trump’s Presidency’

Who do you think has the power to decide the US presidency? Is it the American people, the Electoral College or the US Congress? After a sudden update in the bios of Donald Trump and Mike Pence, some suggest that this power may belong to the State Department, as well.

On Monday, the department’s bio page for Trump saw some drastic changes, suddenly displaying the text “Donald J. Trump’s term ended on 2021-01-11 19:49:00”, with the similar “corrections” done for the page of US Vice President Mike Pence.

What some have already called a “glitch” or “hack” or an attempt by “a disgruntled employee” to sabotage the US State Department, has quaked social media and tormented “State Department” to worldwide trends.

Although the two webpages were swiftly taken down, the screenshots instantly flooded social media, along with baffled netizens, some of whom pondered what that could mean, and some laughing about the situation.

An archetypal “State Department staffer” who appeared to have prematurely “ended Trump’s presidency” starred related Twitter threads.
