Donald J. Trump, the President of the United States, is a 71-year-old man.

Sometimes you could be forgiven for forgetting that fact, as he often behaves more like a petulant child.

Take for instance the time he tweeted a wrestling video, where he was beating up the CNN logo.

There was also the time he struggled to spell a fairly basic word.

Well, we've probably been giving President Trump too much credit as it would appear his behaviour is more like a toddler.

Daniel W. Drezner, a Professor at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and a writer for TheWashington Post has been compiling every time someone from Congress or the White House has compared the POTUS to a toddler.

He's been doing this on Twitter since 25 April and needless to say, there are a lot. Here is the entire thread if you are interested but for now here are a few of our favourites.
