President Donald Trump took to Twitter anew to share his thoughts and sentiments on pressing issues and controversies surrounding his administration, and some members of his first family.
First, the President fired off against what he thinks is the double standards and bias of mainstream media. He said: “Hillary Clinton can illegally get the question to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?”
The tweet has been shared more than 11,000 times and liked by more than 40,000 users.
Donald, Jr. is in the middle of a controversy spread by mainstream media regarding alleged links with Russians over the 2016 presidential campaign. The latest issue is that Donald rump’s campaign committee supposedly paid $50,000 to the firm of a lawyer representing Donald Trump, Jr. 13 days before emails regarding the alleged links to Russia were publicly released.
On his next follow-up tweet within the same hour, the President chose to show appreciation to his supporters. He posted: “Thank you to all the supporters, who far out-numbered the protesters, yesterday at the Women’s U.S. Open. Very cool!” The said tweet in just about two hours got almost 7,000 retweets and liked by almost 35,000 followers.
The President continues his tweeting spree today with a special call out to his former campaign adviser Michael Caputo. Trump wrote: “Thank you to former campaign adviser Michael Caputo for saying so powerfully that there was no Russian collusion in our winning campaign.”
Michael Caputo said that he “never once” spoke to anyone about the possibility of receiving help from the Russian government to get Trump elected. He made that statement during his appearance to the congressional committee, and repeated the same on his interviews with media.
The appreciation tweet of Trump to his former campaign adviser, in less than two hours, got more than 6,000 retweets and over 28,000 likes. Trump supporters also reacted to the tweet by sending their love and support to the President, with some quoting biblical passages to say to Trump that he would be vindicated as well in this issue, and with his presidency.
For his latest salvo, the President again took the mainstream media to task for being “fake” and “fraudulent”. Trump wrote: “With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!”
Despite being the most recent of all his tweets today, his admonition of the media tweet has already garnered almost 8,000 retweets and liked by 29,000.
