Trump’s Old Tweet Criticizing Obama For Campaigning After A Hurricane Comes Back To Haunt Him

President Donald Trump once criticized former President Barack Obama for campaigning in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy devastating the Northeast.

It appears, however, that criticism wasn’t taken to hear: the president held a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Wednesday night, just hours after Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida.

“Yesterday Obama campaigned with JayZ & Springsteen while Hurricane Sandy victims across NY & NJ are still decimated by Sandy. Wrong!” the now-president wrote in November 2012.

During the rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, the president offered his “thoughts and prayers” to those affected by Hurricane Michael and added that he would travel to the areas affected “very shortly,” according to the Associated Press.

On Wednesday, as the hurricane made landfall near Mexico Beach, Fla., Trump said he “cannot disappoint” the people attending his Pennsylvania rally.

Trump’s inability to follow his own advice about not campaigning during the aftermath of a hurricane was pointed out by people online.

Yes, there is always a tweet.
