President Joe Biden has raised a few smiles everywhere for a remark he made about former US President Donald Trump during a recent town hall event.
The 46th President gave the biggest sign that he is done with his predecessor when he took to the stage on Tuesday night (16th February) in Milwaukee.
He said, "I’m tired of talking about Donald Trump I don’t want to talk about him anymore." And he was so tired, that he felt the need to stress it twice in the hope of changing the subject once and for all.
But it's his unwillingness to even give Trump a bit of publicity by creating a new name for the ex-President that has sent fans wild on social media.

Last month Joe Biden became America’s 46th president, whilst Kamala Harris made history as the first female, first Black American, and first Asian American to become Vice President of the United States.
The President made it clear he has more burning topics than being asked for his views about Trump’s second impeachment acquittal.
“Look, for four years all that’s been in the news is Trump,” Biden explained. “The next four years I want to make sure all the news is the American people.”
True to that sentiment, Biden then went on to refer to Trump only as “the former guy” at another point - completely choosing not to even mention his name. Ouch!

It comes a month after the Queen's private message to President Joe Biden was revealed.
And fans have been going wild on social media for the move, which appears to be to the delight of most.
One tweeted a response that read, 'So say 81,283,097 other Americans as well.' Another put, 'President Biden is all of us'. And a third made reference to the new name for Trump, it read, 'Biden just called Trump “the former guy” and I think we’ve got ourselves a new title for the ex-president.'
