Trump Blames ‘Mitch M & Paul R’ Over Debt Ceiling: ‘Could Have Been So Easy-Now a Mess!’

The GOP civil war continues.

President Trump got back on Twitter to swipe at House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not raising the debt ceiling.

There are current efforts in Congress to pass a spending package that will raise the borrowing limit and keep the government open in September. The push has major implications for America’s credit ratings, though current plans might’ve been derailed somewhat after Trump threatened to let the government shut down unless the new plan includes funding for the construction of a border wall.

UPDATE – 8:54 a.m. EST: Trump also swung at the media as he defended the drastic differences in his conduct from his most recent speaking engagements:

UPDATE – 9:10 a.m. EST: Trump re-issued his speech tweets, presumably after he got rid of the originals due to spelling errors.

UPDATE – 9:39 a.m. EST: Trump also attacked James Clapper after the former DNI director questioned the president’s fitness for office after his incendiary speech in Arizona.

UPDATE – 9:45 a.m. EST: One more jab at McConnell.
