A recent tweet from the President has many people scratching their heads in confusion about what he could possibly mean.
The tweet insinuated that a Biden Presidency would somehow lead to "no ratings" and the downfall of American media.
The tweet included a video of presidential candidate Joe Biden that was shared by White House social media aide Dan Savino, along with a bit of baffling caption.
"Is this what you want for your President??? With no ratings, media will go down along with our great USA!"

Nobody seems to be sure exactly what "no ratings" is supposed to mean, or what that has to do with the democratic presidential candidate.
Many are also confused about why media's "ratings" should be a metric by which to judge the success of a Presidency.
Those who responded to Trump's mysterious tweet about ratings said that they did, indeed, want Biden as president.

Several cited the Trump administration's abysmal response to the COVID-19 pandemic as their reason.
@realDonaldTrump YES! We don't care about ratings. We do care about the #TrumpDeathToll137K and your #TRE45ON. https://t.co/K6xiWHlCF8— D Villella ❄️ (@D Villella ❄️)1594640757.0

While nobody seems to be sure why they should be concerned with the media's ratings during an election cycle, many do seem sure of who they plan to vote for.
