Treasury Department Deletes Retweet of Trump Political Victory Boast After Immediate Criticism

The U.S. Treasury Department came under fire Wednesday morning for retweeting a post from President Donald Trump boasting about a political victory.

The retweet — which has been deleted, but can be seen below via screenggrab — featured the president bragging about special election results and declaring a “red wave” for the upcoming midterms.

Twitter immediately pounced — questioning whether the retweet constituted a violation of the Hatch Act, which mandates that Federal agencies must remain non-partisan.
