GOP Divide? Trump Laments Republicans Who ‘Do Very Little To Protect Their President’

One thing that seemed to be missing this morning was a tweetstorm from President Donald Trump. Following yesterday morning’s series of tweets taking aim at the media and Hillary Clinton, among other things, Trump sent out a handful of posts celebrating the commissioning of the USS Gerald R. Ford. And then he took 20 hours off from the social media platform.

Well, he’s back at it this afternoon.

First, we got a tweet once again calling the Russia probe a witch hunt:

This was followed by another where he criticized the GOP for not doing enough to protect him:

In recent days, it has been reported that Republicans on Capitol Hill aren’t all that thrilled with Trump as his White House is gripped in chaos, he’s been hinting at firing special counsel Robert Mueller, and he’s lashed out against them over the failure of the health care bill.

UPDATE – 8:05 p.m. EST: Trump wasn’t done tweeting for the night.
