Trump Goes off On Border Wall Shutdown Twitter Frenzy: Shutdown is ‘The Democrats’ Fault!’

President Donald Trump is going after his political enemies on Twitter, parroting Fox & Friends and claiming decreased gas prices are a result of his energy deregulations.

He used this to strike back against the recent news bombshells about the FBI’s reported counter-intelligence investigation into whether Trump was compromised by the Russians.

He also retweeted Fox’s Geraldo Rivera to hit the FBI a second time.

From there, Trump started hammering Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and congressional Democrats over the government shutdown’s continuation because of his demands for a border wall. He also incorporated RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel into his tweetstorm.

A reminder: Trump said last month that “I am proud to shut down the government” to get his border wall, and “I’m not going to blame [Democrats] for it.”

Also, in terms of the tweet about Democrats in Puerto Rico, it should be noted Jeanine Pirro has admitted that she wrongly told Trump Pelosi was there when the Fox host interviewed him over the weekend.
