Trump Targets Dems: Placing ‘Spies’ on Campaign, ‘Rooting Against Us’ on NoKo, Defending ‘MS 13 Thugs’

President Donald Trump is kicking off his Memorial Day weekend by absolutely burying Democrats on Twitter.

In a scathing Friday morning Tweetstorm, the president accused Democrats of a litany of sins; From placing “Spies” in his campaign, to “rooting against” the United States in its negotiations with North Korea, to “coming to the defense of MS 13 thugs.”

“Democrats are so obviously rooting against us in our negotiations with North Korea,” Trump wrote in the last of four straight Tweets sent shortly after 8:00 a.m. ET. “Just like they are coming to the defense of MS 13 thugs, saying that they are individuals & must be nurtured, or asking to end your big Tax Cuts & raise your taxes instead. Dems have lost touch!”

The Mollie Hemingway quote, it’s worth noting, came from Thursday night’s broadcast of Tucker Carlson Tonight — so we can guess what’s on the president’s DVR during executive time this Friday morning.

Fifteen minutes after his initial Tweets, Trump tried to sound a hopeful note on the North Korea situation, following a statement from a top North Korean official saying it is still willing to meet the U.S.
