President Donald Trump is Twitter-trending again – this time for his ‘”soup rant.” Following his interview with Laura Ingraham where he compared police brutality to “choking up” and “missing a three-foot putt,” a July video of Trump where he is seen complaining about protestors’ newest weapon of choice – soup cans – began gaining views and trending on social media.

He describes the cans as a weapon more effective than bricks because they are not too heavy and have the perfect amount of force.
