President Trump just 'liked' his first tweet in years – on Rihanna's work-life balance
Rihanna may not be a fan of President Donald Trump, but the feeling doesn't appear to be mutual.
Despite being one of the most famous Twitter users in the world with 40,000-plus tweets, Trump has only liked eight tweets since joining the social media platform in 2009. He most recently liked a tweet about "presidential material" and "typos" in 2017.
But that changed Tuesday when the commander-in-chief surprisingly pressed the heart button on a tweet about Rihanna maintaining her work-life balance.
During the interview, the singer/fashion designer/makeup mogul said: "I started to realize that you need to make time for yourself, because your mental health depends on it. If you’re not happy, you’re not going to be happy even doing things that you love doing. It’d feel like a chore. I never want work to feel like a chore. My career is my purpose."
She continued: "I’ll shut things down for two days, three days at a time. On my calendar we now have the infamous 'P,' which means personal days. This is a new thing."
Nigatu's tweet received nearly 4,000 likes, including one from Trump, who reportedly clicked the heart button after going on a Twitter tirade about former President Barack Obama and "presidential harassment" Tuesday evening.
It is safe to say Trump's Twitter like left some users confused.
"If the media doesn't ask Trump about liking that Rihanna tweet they should turn in their press badges," @ericdemamp tweeted.

User @emilycolucci jokingly said, "If Trump could actually get Rihanna to release new music, I might consider voting for him (ok...no)."
One user speculated that Trump connected with Rihanna's "personal days."
"To be fair he does shut down for 2 or 3 days at a time, he just does it every 2 or 3 days," @MattSeg09 tweeted, while @wagatwe added: "Trump does love his personal days."
