Trump fires backs at new DNC head Tom Perez insult by calling his election ‘rigged’

Published

President Donald Trump continued a low grade Twitter war with newly-elected Democratic National Committee head Tom Perez on Sunday morning, saying his election on Saturday was “rigged.”

Bright and early, the president sought to sow discord over the bitterly fought election to fill the top leadership spot at the DNC between Perez — the Democratic establishment candidate — and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) who was backed by the Bernie Sanders’ wing of the party.

Trump tweeted, “The race for DNC Chairman was, of course, totally ‘rigged.’ Bernie’s guy, like Bernie himself, never had a chance. Clinton demanded Perez!”

The tweet by the president is likely in response to a Perez tweet late Saturday, when the newly elected Perez informed the president he and Ellison would be Trump’s “worst nightmare.”

Perez wrote, “Call me Tom. And don’t get too happy. @keithellison and I, and Democrats united across the country, will be your worst nightmare.”

That tweet was in response to a backhanded compliment from Trump, who wrote, “Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!”

During the presidential campaign, Trump stated that the election would be “rigged” when it looked like he would lose, only to switch his claim to 3 million illegal voters after he won the electoral college, but lost the popular vote to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Perez is scheduled hit the Sunday morning talk shows where it is expected his war with Trump will continue.

Trump is trying Middle East Peace plan 2.0 after the first one flopped

Published

on

President Donald Trump is scheduled to submit his second Middle East peace plan after the first one senior son-in-law Jared Kushner came up with didn't go over very well.

"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.

“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”

Rage-filled Trump has crippled his presidency because he can’t let go of a grudge no matter how small: report

Published

on

According to a report in Politico, many of Donald Trump's problems are the direct result of his inability to get over the smallest of slights leading him to make poor decisions because he can't see his way to let go of a grudge.

The report notes, "Whether in the privacy of his clubs or out on the campaign trail, the president can’t help but hold onto a grudge. Even as Trump heads into an election year with a record that he claims ranks him among the best presidents of all time, political grievances continue to drive everything from policy decisions to rally speeches to some of the biggest scandals of his presidency — including his impeachment."
