Whew! That was quite the Twitter storm now, wasn’t it? Let’s try to digest the overload of major news and meaningful statements with which the new President bombarded the nation in the wee hours of the fifth and sixth days of his presidency…140 characters at a time.
Putting aside even the multiple executive actions, policy pronouncements, meetings with both corporate and union leaders and other actions that came rapid fire in the first five days of his presidency, and putting aside the news earlier in the evening that he fully intends to pursue the building of that much-vilified wall along our southern border, President Trump in less than 12 hours bypassed the media again (which continues to infuriate them) in announcing plans to:
- take federal action if Chicago can not contain its growing murder epidemic
- launch a federal investigation into voter fraud.
- announce his Supreme Court nominee on February
Oh, and he also took another shot at CNN, ridiculing their fake news operation.
So much for the idea that candidate and President-Elect Trump’s use of Twitter would change when he reached the White House.
More importantly, as we witnessed in the themes of his inaugural address, so much for the notion that the audacious promises Trump made during the presidential campaign were just overheated campaign rhetoric designed to attract votes, but are the same things he actually intends to do as President. What a concept.
Behold the deluge:
If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible “carnage” going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!
I will be making my Supreme Court pick on Thursday of next week.Thank you!
I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and….(continues on 2nd tweet) even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!
