Trump retweets, then deletes, random guy calling him a fascist

Trump had a startling retweet on Tuesday morning.

During an early morning Twitter spree on Tuesday, President Trump mistakenly retweeted a random guy calling him a fascist:

User Mike Holden's tweet was in response to a Fox & Friends article with the headline "FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE: President Trump 'seriously considering' a pardon for ex-Sheriff Joe Arpaio."

Holden immediately commented on his newfound fame:

A few moments later, Trump undid the retweet and it vanished from his page. The president's retweet of a "Trump" train hitting a man with a CNN logo for a head stayed up. Jeva Lange

Update 7:40 a.m. ET: Trump decided against having the image of a train hitting a reporter on his page and deleted that tweet as well.
