Updated as new tweets are posted and for clerical edits.
The Pretend War
Republicans have controlled both the House and the Senate for two years. They have yet to pass a budget to fund the wall. The problem is not with Democrats. The problem is that the president’s idea, a wall, is a medieval solution for a modern problem. The costs outweigh the benefits. Walls have been breached for as long as they’ve existed.
Funding for a Wall
The assertion that Mexico will pay for the wall is absurd – whether it be directly or indirectly. The U.S. trade policy with Mexico and Canada may (or may not) increase U.S. profits, that may (or may not) contribute to federal funds, would need to be used to build the wall instead of being used for other more critical expenditures.
Tweet Content Description
Get ready, world. The president is actively creating diversions from the negative news headlines involving him and his campaign.
4th, 5th & 6th Tweet
Trump Foundation | Blaming Law Enforcement
The AG is deliberating which charges to file against the people who illegally used Foundation funds for a presidential campaign (among other things).
That president now appears to be encouraging U.S. citizens to oppose prosecution of the same sitting president. That is an abuse of office.
This section will be completed if Trump tweets.
A Media Center

At 10:31 PM EST I received notification of this Trump re-tweet.
~ Why does this president share some bloggers’ consortium of writers “investigative” report that reads like a conspiracy theorist’s rag?
~ Is this information published in any mainstream media sources in the U.K. where the reported lawsuits have been filed?
