How do I embed *one* tweet?

Hi, everyone. Apologies for dragging Donald Trump into Canvas, but here's what I'm dealing with....

 

If I go to a news website, embedded tweets usually look like this (which I like):

 

But when I try to embed just that one tweet into a Canvas page I get this (which I do not like):

 

How do I get the embed to look like the news site rather than what I have above?

 

The method I'm using to embed the tweet is: alt+F9 > Insert > Media > embed, and then I insert the embed code provided by Twitter. I get the same results when pasting the embed code into Canvas's HTML editor. The embed code is this: 

 

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Wow, CNN had to retract big story on &quot;Russia,&quot; with 3 employees forced to resign. What about all the other phony stories they do? FAKE NEWS!</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/879648931172556802">June 27, 2017</a></blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

 

For what it's worth, here is the url directly to Donald's tweet: https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/879648931172556802 

 

Thanks for any help, Canvas Friends.
