Donald Trump has announced on Twitter that he has personally contacted a raccoon that climbed a 25-storey tower to offer it permanent citizenship.

“He did a tremendous job winning,” Trump tweeted.

“Raccoon-man is not one of those bad hombres.”

“He’s a great guy, covfefe.”

Many US media outlets have now backflipped on their love of cute furry animals.

Trump has been criticized for appeasing raccoons saying they are “nasty, horrible, garbage-eating vermin. You can’t enter into any contracts with them, they’re bound to go back on their word”.
