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.”

However, CNN reports that past statements from his own administration's officials show that the threat of a pandemic hammering the United States was long seen as a danger that the country was not equipped to handle.

"Of course, the thing that people ask: 'What keeps you most up at night in the biodefense world?' Pandemic flu, of course," said Trump HHS Secretary Alex Azar nearly one year ago.

Trump’s path to re-election ‘smashed to splinters’ as his only achievement is swallowed up by the pandemic: report

Published

In a piece for Politico, Ben White writes that Donald Trump was going into November's election with only one achievement under his belt -- a healthy economy -- and now he has nothing left to run if he wants to be re-elected.

With all of the gains made in the stock market long gone due to the coronavirus pandemic and the collapse of oil prices, White claims that the president's campaign strategy lies in tatters.

"The fundamental pillars of Donald Trump’s presidency — a hot economy, strong job growth and a rocking stock market — are all being smashed to splinters by the ravaging coronavirus, which has shuttered much of the nation and now officially ended a streak of 113 months of job gains dating back to the end of the Great Recession a decade ago," he wrote before noting the explosion of unemployment claims -- over ten million so far -- that has the country reeling.
