As US President Donald Trump faces impeachment proceedings initiated against him by US House Democrats, he has apparently once again managed to rile up the online crowd via what HuffPost described as a “bizarre tweetstorm.”
The “odd assortment of tweets” posted by Trump on Monday night included an animated clip featuring scenes from his presidency, the art style of which bears a striking resemblance to the “Take On Me” music video by A-ha.
Many netizens quickly noticed this similarity, with the media outlet claiming that the band’s name and the song started trending shortly afterwards.
Meanwhile, a number of social media users took the opportunity to poke fun at the president.

This version of the Take On Me video sucks.— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) 1 октября 2019 г.
Hopefully Trump will be gone in a day or two.
One person even suggested a different music video as an alternative for the president’s clip.

Some, however, seemed to appreciate the stunt.
