President Donald Trump Twitter Tweetstorm – The Sunday Edition
The Commander-in-Tweet continued his weekend habit this morning, launching last night with a rare Saturday night session before continuing with vigor on Sunday.

Mexico Beats Germany 1-0 In World Cup, Avenges News Outlet’s Insult
German newspaper Die Welt took a swipe at Mexico today in the name of World Cup soccer, publishing a somewhat inflammatory headline about what Germany would do to them on the pitch by alluding to US President Donald Trump’s plans for a barrier on the border.
By hinting at erecting a wall against Mexican soccer’s advance, perhaps the Die Welt editors forgot the not-so-small matter of the Berlin Wall and the pain it caused their own country. Maybe it was intended to fire up… Read
