It’s a total eclipse by President Donald Trump of Barack Obama.

President Donald Trump took a break from tweeting about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and the debt ceiling and retweeted a meme to remind his 36 million followers that he won the election nine months ago and replaced former President Obama as commander-in-chief in January.

A Twitter user named Jerry Travone replied to the president’s recent tweet with a photo that showed Trump edited onto a picture of Obama.

The series starts with a photo that shows a glimpse of Trump, who is in color in the frame, along with a black-and-white image of Obama. Trump gradually commands more of the frame in the next two photos until the fourth and final one shows a smiling Trump and no Obama.

The caption on the photo says “The best eclipse ever!”

This is the tweet that President Trump shared to his followers:

Travone describes himself on Twitter as a YouTube actor, political junkie and “Proud Trump supporter.”

After the retweet, President Trump returned to Twitter to comment on his recent speeches, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, and McConnell.

Celebrities, journalists and other people responded to the president’s retweet on his official account:
