President Trump got off to an early start this morning on Twitter. Starting at approximately 6 am EST, the President shot off a string of 7 tweets over a 50-minute period. He didn’t just stick to the usual attacks against his political opponents this time, as it appears he has now turned his attention to some of his own people.
For the third time in a week, the President attacked his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions. He made the following tweet this morning:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!”
Clearly the President is either trying to force Sessions to re-open an investigation into Hillary Clinton without directly telling him to, or he is trying to force Sessions to resign. The latter is the likely case, as firing Sessions could put him in legal jeopardy since it could be considered obstruction of justice. Sessions isn’t the only person currently working for Trump, who he has attacked this morning. Ten minutes after his attack on the Attorney General, Trump turned his attention to Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe:
“Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!” Trump tweeted.
All indications have pointed to the Hillary Clinton investigation being closed, so McCabe likely is not in charge of any such investigation. Regardless, this attack was also one he should have left for a face-to-face meeting with McCabe, not one he should have aired to the public on Twitter.
Finally Trump attacked one of America’s largest and most prosperous companies, Amazon. Amazon actually doesn’t own the Washington Post, but Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon does. The Post, like most of the mainstream media, has been quite critical of the President.
“Is Fake News Washington Post being used as a lobbyist weapon against Congress to keep Politicians from looking into Amazon no-tax monopoly?” he tweeted.
In the past, Amazon did not charge sales tax to customers in certain states, however this all changed back on March 29th when the company began charging taxes to everyone in the country. It is assumed that the President was referring to Amazon’s actions pre-March 29, and doesn’t realize that the company is doing things differently now. Either way, for the President of the United States to so blatantly attack an America company like this is quite sad.
