Washington – Following Donald Trump Twitter message to Kim Jong Un, Marise Tanner, an historian, explains that the 45th President of the United States isn’t actually the first one to be caught in a catfight with the leader of another country.
Abraham Lincoln CatFight
“Unbeknown to most people, Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, had the wildest catfight with Henry John Temple, United Kingdom’s Prime Minister in 1861”, Marise explains. “Using an insert in a newspaper, Abraham Lincoln wrote : “Will someone please inform Henry John Temple that I too have a trigger on my gun, but it is a much bigger and more powerful one than his, and my trigger works!”. Temple and Lincoln kept on bickering for some more months after that until both of them grew tired of it”.
George Washington CatFight
“That’s right, the first President of the United States was also the first one to have a catfight, in 1792”, Marise says. “In a message written on a the side of a horse carriage travelling through the country for everyone to see, George Washington wrote :”Will someone please inform Naughty Louis that I too have a snath on my scythe, but it is a much bigger and more powerful one than his, and my snath works!”. The message was aimed at Louis XVI of France who had said 3 months earlier that he had bigger and prettier shoe buckles than the American President”
