As Trump grows more and more frustrated and his ability to discredit his critics and explain away his actions fades, he continues to last out on Twitter with nonsense rants that don’t even seem to be based in reality. After a damning sentencing memo for Michael Cohen implicated the president in two felonies, for instance, Trump tweeted that the memo had “totally cleared the president.”
Now, he’s once again back to his stance that he can’t be impeached because he’s just so great.
I am in the process of interviewing some really great people for the position of White House Chief of Staff. Fake News has been saying with certainty it was Nick Ayers, a spectacular person who will always be with our #MAGA agenda. I will be making a decision soon!

Trump’s imagined list of accomplishments includes things that all presidents do, such as appointing Supreme Court and federal judges. The promises he made during the presidential campaigns – to repeal Obamacare, pass legislation for universal healthcare, build a border wall, and a host of other things – have not come to pass.
He rode out the wave of success of the Obama economy for a while, but his trade war is causing a sharp drop in the trade market and is hurting farmers across America. His promises to bring back the coal industry have fallen through and the production of coal is at its historical lowest. Manufacturing industries are rapidly leaving the country thanks to the tariffs Trump has imposed.
Instead of following through on anything, Trump’s one signature piece of legislation that actually did get through Congress was a tax cut for the wealthiest Americans. That is the sum total of his successes.
Twitter was quick to remind Trump of all of these points. Read some of their comments below:
