President Donald Trump on Sunday thanked himself for falling oil prices, but what stood out to many wasn’t the moment of self-congratulation.
It was a new nickname Trump gave to himself: “President T.”
So great that oil prices are falling (thank you President T). Add that, which is like a big Tax Cut, to our other good Economic news. Inflation down (are you listening Fed)!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 25, 2018
People on Twitter were quick to chime in with some thoughts on what the “T” could stand for beyond Trump, and the obligatory Mr. T jokes:

-Dropping oil prices and down- for-the-year stock market have economists warning of recession
-if you are going to call yourself President T, you have to wear chains and a mohawk https://t.co/PDhOA1JMXk

I pity the fool who voted for President T.— Schooley (@Rschooley) November 25, 2018
Mr. T > President T— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) November 25, 2018
There’s about an 80% chance he called himself “President T” because he forgot how to spell the rest of his own name. https://t.co/TDO4ketZMf— Jules Suzdaltsev (@jules_su) November 25, 2018

Trump giving himself the friendly nickname “President T” makes me deeply uncomfortable. Like he’s trying to cast himself in the role of the good dad all of the neighborhood kids love in a 1950’s TV show. https://t.co/ioprYxY2Wq— Joyce Alene (@JoyceWhiteVance) November 25, 2018

He's kidding, right?
Tiny hands? Thoughtless? Toupee?
Traitor? Tax Evader? Twatwaffle?
Treason? Trainwreck? Terrible?
Threatening? Tacky? Toddler? https://t.co/u0aArcPwbq
I pity the fool who doesn’t know who the real President T is! pic.twitter.com/bGnXBhiVIE— Evan Shumeyko (@evanshumeyko) November 25, 2018
One way or another, Mueller's going to drop a bomb on you tomorrow. Sleep tight, "President T."— Eric Jones (@CartoonJones) November 26, 2018
(The 'T' is for "treason," folks.)
