President Trump tweets picture of himself as Rocky Balboa

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Social media on Wednesday was reacting to an unusual tweet by President Donald Trump.

Trump tweeted the message on Friday, leaving many on social asking: What does this mean?

One person tweeted, "is this real life?"

"Best tweet ever. Liberal heads are exploding everywhere. I love it," tweeted another user.

"Donald please I just got my wife back!," wrote another person.

"Should have put a warning on this #iwasntReady".


President Trump didn't tweet an explanation along with the photo, leaving many to speculate.

"Is this...is this really how you see yourself lmaoooo," read another tweet.
