Trump Tweeted at Least Eight Times
Trump tweeted a variety of messages this morning. Today he sent out at least eight tweets covering everything from “fake news” to Hillary Clinton, within a one hour-period. He started by attacking one of his favorite targets, the Washington Post. He attacked their recent article concerning Attorney General Jeff Sessions. They based their story on unnamed sources saying Sessions talked to a Russian ambassador during the 2016 White House campaign about policy issues and other matters. Trump tweeted, “A new INTELLIGENCE LEAK from the Amazon Washington Post, this time against A.G. Jeff Sessions. These illegal leaks, like Comey’s, must stop!” The Post reported that Sessions had “substantive” discussions about policy and other issues with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
In Early AM Tweet Trump Seems Agitated
Early today, at 4:47 AM, President Trump tweeted, “…What about all of the Clinton ties to Russia, including Podesta Company, Uranium deal, Russian Reset, big dollar speeches etc.” In a tweet following this he wrote, “So many people are asking why isn’t the A.G. or Special Council looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes. 33,000 e-mails deleted?”
Trump, in one of his final tweets during this series, addressed his son, Donald Trump Jr. Trump Jr. is now caught up in the Russia meddling-collusion ordeal, after he and other Trump associates met in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer, on the promise she had negative information about rival Clinton. In this tweet he wrote, “My son Donald openly gave his e-mails to the media & authorities whereas Crooked Hillary Clinton deleted (& acid washed) her 33,000 e-mails!”
So, the president has written a number of tweets today on a variety of subjects. Most likely they will garner some interest today. They might even temporarily take the heat off of other pressing issues such as health care insurance, taxes, the border fence as well as immigration. Only time will tell!
