Twitter users are attempting to guess the meaning of US President Donald Trump’s latest unexplained two-word tweet which simply said: WITCH HUNT!
“WITCH HUNT” appears to be a favorite phrase of the president, who has used it multiple times on Twitter. In response to its latest use, one journalist tweeted screenshots listing 27 different occasions that Trump had used the phrase.

Twitter users have assumed that Trump is once again referring to the investigation into alleged collusion between his presidential campaign and Russia, and some have come to his defense, with one response arguing that the “witch hunt” must come to an end “by any means necessary,” while others were more jovial about the whole thing.
A witch hunt that MUST END BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!

One user joked that Trump’s disdain for witch hunts was a sign that he is a great defender of women after all.
Trump decrying a “witch hunt” is the closest thing to showing respect for women that he’s ever done.
