Starting @ 8:06 a.m. on Tuesday President Trump has unleashed once again on Twitter, while typically this article focuses on every tweet, today it will only feature some of the more random tweets that so far have been issued from the Twitter account of the 45th President of the United States. 

He started his day focusing on his feud with Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren and her possibly/not possibly having an ancestor that was Native American. He spent three tweets on Elizabeth Warren who as the News Blender reported on Monday released DNA results that show she had some Native American heritage. 

The President then shifted gears away from his feud with Senator Warren and focused on the border @ 8:55 a.m. he praised an op-ed that appeared in the Washington Examiner

His next tweet again focusing on border security informed followers that the United States “strongly informed,” Honduras that if they did not stop a “large Caravan of people,” trying to make their way to the American border, that they would get “no more money or aid.” 

President Trump’s tweet comes amid reports that roughly 1,600 hundred or more Hondurans are making their way to our border as The Hill reported Tuesday, members of the caravan have said, “they are fleeing poverty and violence in their home country in search of a better life.” The article also states that in the fiscal year of 2017 the U.S. “gave $175 million in aid,” according to the United States Agency for International Development. 

@ 9:15 a.m. he stated that any news articles claiming that he has “financial interests in Saudi Arabia,” are just “more FAKE NEWS.” He also explained he has no financial interests in Russia as well. 

CNN reports that at a campaign rally in 2015, President Trump then-candidate Trump told the gathered crowd in Mobile, Alabama, “I get along great with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much!”

Last Thursday, The Washington Post reported that President Trump’s business relationships between the President and Saudi government start as early as the 1990’s, and continue through his Presidency with “Saudi lobbyists,” spending “$270,000 last year to reserve rooms at,” President Trump’s Washington hotel. The article continues that this year, both his hotels in New York, and Chicago, have seen an increase in bookings, “from Saudi visitors.” 

He then spent some time on the economy in between his feud with Senator Warren and the border. Randomly the President linked in a thread two tweets, one that praised manufacturing job growth that is better “than with Obama,” the second mentions a news report from Fox News that talked about conflict of interest between Glen Simpson and DOJ Attorney Bruce Ohr. He also asked, “where is Jeff Sessions.” 

As a reminder Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself from having any dealings with the Russia investigation into whether or not Trump’s campaign members conspired with the Russian government in order to obtain dirty on Hillary Clinton. His recusal would prevent him from having information regarding all investigations not just Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. 

His next tweet about the economy praised the “incredible number,” that was just released showing there are 7,036,000 job openings and the rebound of the Stock Market. The President feels “Strong Profits,” makes the U.S. “Number One in World, by far!” 

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that the Labor Department said, “There were a seasonally adjusted 7.136 million job openings on the last business day of August.” This number according to the article “extends further into record-high territory for data dating back to 2000.” 

Chris Rupkey who works as an economist at MUFG Union Bank told The Wall Street Journal, “An increasing labor shortage may soon be one of the biggest risks to the economy’s continued expansion. Companies need more workers than the economy has to give and this is going to lead to a slowdown in economic growth somewhere down the road.”

On Monday The Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. deficit totaled $779 billion at the end of the fiscal year, which is September 30th, that’s according to the article a 17 percent increase from last years deficit. 

The White House and Congressional Budget office have said the deficit is headed toward $1 trillion “in the current fiscal year.” 

While the President continued his feud with Senator Warren, he managed to throw out an insult to porn star Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford and her lawyer Michael Avenatti, calling the actress “Horseface and her attorney 3rd rate.” While also threatening he can now “go after,” the pair. 

In April of 2018 Daniels released a compost sketch of a man that she claims threatened her 2011. The man, she says reminded her to be silent of her alleged sexual encounter with then-businessman Trump, from back in 2006. After the release of the sketch President Trump took to Twitter and called the sketch a “total con job.” 

Daniels sued according to Courthouse News  for defamation based on the tweet from President Trump claiming that the tweet “painted her as fabricating a crime and the existence of an assailant – a violation of the law in several states, according to her lawsuit.”  

U.S. District Court Judge James Otero threw out the lawsuit, Monday Courthouse News writes, that the case, “failed to make even a basic case of defamation under Texas law, her choice of law given she lives there.” 

In Judge Otero’s order he called the tweet “rhetorical hyperbole” saying that, “The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement.”

According to Courthouse News, this dismissal of the defamation lawsuit has nothing to do with the other court cases pending between Daniels and President Trump. 

President Trump has continued to tweet, sending two tweets regarding Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s trip to Saudi Arabia to discuss missing presumed dead journalist Jamal Khashoggi. 

Monday the News Blender reported that President Trump spoke with the King of Saudi Arabia and he denied any involvement with the disappearance or death of Khashoggi. 

Monday evening CNN reported that two sources told them that Saudi Arabia was “preparing to admit,” that Khashoggi’s death resulted from, “an interrogation that went wrong, one that was intended to lead to his abduction from Turkey.” 

So far the Twitterstorm was paused @ 3:30 p.m. eastern time.
