Donald Trump’s words about the coronavirus did not go over well, and the president does not like what he has been hearing about his speech. Instead of remaining in his job as leader of the free world, POTUS once again used words certain to create a disruption in Congress.
He was referring to the “illegal attempted ‘coup'” of himself in his morning tweet. Trump imagines enemies under his bed during the night. Trying to draw attention away from his own problems, he pointed at this fantasy.
‘Many Republican Senators want me to Veto the FISA Bill until we find out what led to, and happened with, the illegal attempted “coup” of the duly elected President of the United States, and others!’
The House passed a bill on Wednesday to reauthorize three national security surveillance authorities with another rare bipartisan agreement. According to CNN:
‘The legislation includes new privacy protections to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, or FISA, as well as changes to the FISA court system to address misconduct over the surveillance warrants for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, which came under fire from Republicans and President Donald Trump. The House approved the measure with a broad, bipartisan majority, 278-136.’
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wants the bill to pass quickly. Yet, Trump may well veto it.
Then, he retweeted a travel notice warning from the CDC. It recommended “avoiding all nonessential travels to most of Europe:”
‘#CDCTRAVELNOTICE: #Coronavirus in most of #Europe. CDC recommends avoiding all nonessential travel to most of Europe. More information: bit.ly/33cPoUB’
Twitter world went into overdrive after the president tweeted. Check out some of our favorites below:
