Trump has already shattered his single day record for tweets as impeachment drives him up the wall

Published

President Donald Trump published an astonishing 70 tweets before 9 a.m. on Thursday, and now the Washington Post has found that he has already shattered his single-day record for tweets with several hours left to go.

As of 2 p.m., the Post reports, Trump had blasted out well over 100 tweets and had already broken a record for tweeting that he had previously set mere days earlier.

“Since June 16, 2015, when he announced his candidacy, he’s never tweeted as much as he had by 2 p.m. on Thursday, a volume of tweets exceeding even the period right before the election in 2016,” the Post reports. “And Thursday wasn’t an aberration; the previous record for most tweets in a day came on Sunday.”

Additionally, the Post has found that Trump has averaged roughly 60 tweets per day over the last seven days, whereas no previously weekly average of tweets per day had even cracked 50.

Similar past surges in Trump tweets have come in the run up to the 2018 midterm elections and the days leading up to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

“The theme, in other words, is that Twitter is how Trump does battle,” the paper says. “The volume of tweets correlates to his interest in engaging in a fight.”

Democrats are increasingly worried about losing the 2020 presidential election to Donald Trump. The party is in seeming disarray from the botched Iowa caucuses and the failure of an "electable" frontrunner to emerge early in the primary season. Trump's fundraising and digital operations are humming, buoyed in part by his acquittal at the Senate trial which refused to remove him from office for soliciting foreign interference in the 2020 elections and obstructing the House's investigation of it.

According to O'Brien, seeing them hand Trump a photo-op filled her with "disappointment."

Taking to Twitter, she wrote, " Ugh.... so disappointed by the @1980MiracleTeam . I loved watching that game as a kid with my dad. Loved watching the movie with my kids. To see them on a stage, in maga hats—kinda crushing I have to say."

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) took a shot at President Donald Trump on Sunday morning after the president tried to blame him for the leak describing a classified meeting lawmakers had with an intelligence official who warned the bipartisan group that the Kremlin is trying to help the president get re-elected.

As the president prepared to leave the White House for India, he told reporters that Schiff was to blame for the leaked meeting story, with the president insisting he personally had not been briefed on the report explosive report.

Responding to a 'Meet the Press" clip of the president making his accusation, Schiff tweeted back: "Nice deflection, Mr. President. But your false claims fool no one. You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020. Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it. You’ve betrayed America. Again."
