Trump Starts Day with Tweets About Poll Numbers and ‘Witch Hunt,’ Ignoring News of Sailor Deaths



This morning, President Donald Trump once again started the day with some Twitter action. Spending the weekend with his family at Camp David, the president began Father’s Day by tossing out three tweets that touched on an outlier poll and his agenda in the face of the “Witch Hunt” Russia probe.

One thing he did not mention during his early morning missives, however, was the tragic news that the seven missing sailors from the USS Fitzgerald were found dead last night in a flooded compartment. The bodies were found after the ship had returned to its base in Japan.

Trump had tweeted about the Fitzgerald and the then-missing sailors yesterday morning, offering up “thoughts and prayers” for them and their families.

Yet, so far, no mention of anything via Twitter following the announcement of their deaths, even though it has been publicly known since last night and, as president, Trump had found out about the news before it was released.
