Right now, the president of the United States has real issues on which he should be focusing. More than 160,000 Americans have died from a global pandemic. Unemployment rates are in the double digits. Civil unrest is boiling over across the country.
What is Donald Trump focused on? He’s mad at Anthony Scaramucci.
Both tweets are petty and misleading, but Donald Trump is president, so it’s nothing less than what we’ve come to expect from this administration. For the record, he hired Anthony Scaramucci just like he hired so many other people that he likes to call “losers” once they’ve left his administration and started talking about their time there, and Chuck Schumer says that neither he nor House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have called Trump about anything.
Trump’s executive orders, which he issued to step in on congressional negotiations on a bill that Democrats passed months ago but was never taken up by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, are likely unconstitutional and ignore a large portion of the aid that’s actually needed by the American people. Housing assistance? Trump left that out. Funding for testing? That’s not in Trump’s executive order, either. Money to help cash-strapped states, all of which Donald Trump is supposed to be president of whether they’re packed with Trump voters or not, also ignored.
Trump’s orders are half-baked measures that are illegitimate since Congress has the power to tax and spend and he does not, but he’ll never admit it. This is an election year stunt that won’t be legal just because Trump wants to be reelected.
Twitter wasn’t impressed with Trump’s lies. Read some of their comments below:
