Trump's chicken tweet tears Twitter users apart

Washington, Aug 3 : Politicians prefer to document what they are eating on social media to attract voters, but sometimes a culinary misstep can cause a mishap. Donald Trump is currently facing such a situation.

The Republican presidential nominee tweeted a picture of himself enjoying a KFC meal with a knife and fork on his private plane, reports Xinhua news agency.

"Good afternoon in Ohio and a great evening in Pennsylvania -- departing now. See you tomorrow, Virginia," he captioned the snap.

Many made fun of the real estate mogul for eating what is considered to be a common everyman meal on his private jet, chiding the businessman's lack of credibility as a man of the people.

"Eating KFC with a fork and a knife on a private plane. True man of the people," one user tweeted.

Donald Trump bounces into lead: Report

Washington, July 26 : The US Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump has come out of his convention ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, topping her 44 per cent to 39 per cent in a four-way matchup including Gary Johnson (nine per cent) and Jill Stein (three per cent) and by three points in a two-way head-to-head, 48 per cent to 45 per cent, a media report said.

That latter finding represents a six-point convention bounce for Trump, which were traditionally measured in two-way matchups, CNN reported on Monday.

Trump's new edge rests largely on increased support among independents, 43 per cent of whom said that Trump's convention in Cleveland left them more likely to back him, while 41 per cent were dissuaded.
