President Donald Trump began 2019 the same way he ended 2018: by unleashing angry tweets against his perceived political enemies to support his border wall.
Trump, reportedly frustrated over not traveling to Mar-a-Lago to golf, has been livid at congressional Democrats for not funding the border wall he had promised that Mexico would fund.
On New Year’s Eve, Trump attacked Democrats for not approving funding for his wall. “MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL through the many billions of dollars a year that the U.S.A. is saving through the new Trade Deal, the USMCA, that will replace the horrendous NAFTA Trade Deal, which has so badly hurt our Country. Mexico & Canada will also thrive - good for all!” he tweeted.
“Throughout the ages some things NEVER get better and NEVER change. You have Walls and you have Wheels. It was ALWAYS that way and it will ALWAYS be that way!” he later added.
In his second tweet of 2019, the commander-in-chief used all capital letters to wish his “haters” a happy New Year.
A few hours later, he complained: “The Democrats, much as I suspected, have allocated no money for a new Wall. So imaginative! The problem is, without a Wall there can be no real Border Security - and our Country must finally have a Strong and Secure Southern Border!”
Trump then started retweeting his own attacks on Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), before lashing out at retired four-star Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal.
"'General' McChrystal got fired like a dog by Obama. Last assignment a total bust. Known for big, dumb mouth. Hillary lover!" the president tweeted.
The internet, however, was less than impressed with Trump's unhinged tweets at the end of his second calendar year in office.
Here are some of the things people were saying about Trump on Twitter:
