President Donald Trump kicked off the work week tweeting his reaction to 60 Minutes’ interview with former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz about a possible third-party run for the White House in 2020.
“Howard Schultz doesn’t have the ‘guts’ to run for President! Watched him on @60Minutes last night and I agree with him that he is not the ‘smartest person’,” Trump tweeted.
“Besides, America already has that!” POTUS tweet-simpered. “I only hope that Starbucks is still paying me their rent in Trump Tower!”
Trump boasted that tariffs on dumped foreign steel have “totally revived our Steel industry.”
“New and expanded plants are happening all over the U.S.” he tweeted, insisting increased domestic production of that border-wall material has created many jobs and “billions paid to our treasury” which Trump called “A BIG WIN FOR U.S.” Over the weekend, Trump told Wall Street Journal he still demands $5.7B for his steel Border Wall to avoid another government shutdown in three weeks.
Taking a moment to applaud the “Numerous states introducing Bible Literacy classes, giving students the option of studying the Bible,” Trump added, approvingly, “Starting to make a turn back? Great!”
And then, the obligatory Fox & Friends morning plug, quoting Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock who had said that “In the Media’s effort to destroy the President, they are actually destroying themselves. Given all of the tremendous headwinds this President has faced, it’s amazing he has accomplished so much.”
Added Trump: “I agree!”
