Donald Trump has backtracked over a series of  scathing tweets he wrote about President Obama as he secured a second term last  night – hastily deleting messages calling for a ‘revolution’.

And when NBC’s Brian Williams lambasted  Trump’s Twitter tantrum on his show, the outspoken business mogul turned his  anger on the host and his ‘boring’ newscasts.

Trump took to the social networking site after the president’s victory was  projected by several news outlets on Tuesday night, and claimed the re-election  was a ‘great and disgusting  injustice’.

After a barrage of outraged messages, Trump  added: ‘He lost the popular vote by a lot  and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!’

Minutes later, he deleted the tweet –  perhaps aware of the potential legal ramifications of a remark seeking  to  incite a revolution against the president.

NBC’s Brian Williams read some of  Trump’s  tweets on the air, while claiming he did so  reluctantly, as he declared that  the TV personality – whose show,  Celebrity Apprentice, airs on NBC – had  ‘driven well past the last exit  to relevance.’

‘This is, as they say, out there and  getting  an airing tonight, so you might as well know about it,’ Williams groaned.  ‘Donald Trump, who has driven well past the last exit to  relevance and veered  into something closer to irresponsible here, is  tweeting tonight. Here’s a  sampling…’

Williams read several of Trump’s tweets,  which called the election a ‘total sham and a travesty.’

However, as it became apparent that former  Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney would not win the election, the Donald’s  tweets became more enraged, and more hyperbolic.

Trump began with: ‘Well, back to the drawing  board!’

He quickly followed up with a call to  revolution. The Trump wrote: ‘He  lost the popular vote by a lot and won the  election. We should have a  revolution in this country!’ – before deleting the  tweet.

But he was far from over. ‘This  election is  a total sham and a travesty,’ he wrote. ‘We are not a  democracy! He added  America is in ‘serious and unprecedented trouble like never before’.

The 66-year-old later went onto  attack the  Electoral College, but offered a kernel of hope for the  still-Republican House  of Representatives.

‘Hopefully the House can hold our country  together for four more years,’ Trump tweeted.

‘House shouldn’t give anything to Obama  unless he terminates Obamacare.’ He  did not tweet anything after Romney’s  gracious concession speech.

But he didn’t keep his anger quiet for long,  unleashing yet more scathing remarks on Wednesday morning – this time against  Brian Williams, who uses the Twitter handle @bwilliams.

He wrote: ‘@bwilliams knows that I think his  newscast has become totally boring so he took a shot at me last  night.’

‘The only thing more boring than @bwilliams  newscast is his show Rock Center which is totally dying in the ratings – a  disaster!’ he added, before asking him: ‘Wouldn’t you love to have my  ratings?’

He went on: ‘If I’m “well past the last exit  to relevance” how come you spent so much time reading my tweets last  night?’

Trump’s attacks on Obama have been more  frequent in the weeks preceding the election.

Only last week, he lashed out at the  commander-in-chief for using Superstorm Sandy to garner more votes and  essentially buy the election.

The billionaire’s grudge hasn’t gone  unnoticed by the president.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight  Show With Jay Leno, Obama quipped  that their rivalry began when the two were  growing up in Kenya.

‘We had constant run-ins on the soccer field,  he wasn’t that good,’ Obama told the NBC late-night host.
