Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) asked for 18 million retweets. He received about 12,000.
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) attempted a viral stunt on Wednesday to compel President Trump from releasing his tax returns. Wyden’s stunt fell short.
Wyden tweeted a question to @realDonaldTrump on Wednesday: will you release your tax returns if my tweet gets retweeted 18 million times?
.@realdonaldtrump if this gets 18 million retweets, will you release your tax returns?

The tweet is a near-copy of a young man’s attempt to win free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s for a year. The fast food restaurant has asked the man to pick up 18 million retweets, in exchange for the free nuggets.
At press time, the man had a little more than 2.6 million retweets – a significant number, but only about 14 percent of the way there.

Meanwhile, Wyden’s tweet had around 12,000 retweets at press time. That’s good enough to get him less than one tenth of one percent there. Try again, senator?
