    A number of social media users were quick to point out that the creature in question is rumored to be dwelling in a loch rather than in a swamp.

    The mythical Loch Ness Monster has apparently become somewhat of a hot topic on Twitter recently, after being referenced by Donald Trump Jr.

    In his speech on the first day of the Republican National Convention, the US president's son spoke about how taxation in the United States might be affected if Democratic Senator Joe Biden is elected as the country's next head of state.

    “Biden has promised to take that money back out of your pocket and keep it in the swamp”, Trump Jr. said. “That makes sense though, considering Joe Biden is basically the Loch Ness Monster of the swamp.”

    Quite a few social media users have apparently taken note of this development, with the Loch Ness Monster and the manner in which it was mentioned at the RNC quickly becoming a topic of discussion online.

    Some have jokingly pondered on what exactly Trump Jr's remark might imply.

    ​Others did not appear particularly thrilled by this comparison.

    ​And there seemed to be no shortage of those eager to point out that Nessie's rumored habitat is not a swamp.

    ​The first night of the Republican National Convention which kicked off on 24 August witnessed Donald Trump and Mike Pence being officially renominated as the 2020 Republican presidential and vice-presidential candidates, respectively.
