Monday and Tuesday, between the hours of 7:31 p.m. and 11:09 a.m., President Trump tweeted seven times and re-tweeted seven tweets. 

Monday night found President tweeting, again, that the “Mueller Witch Hunt is a total disgrace,” he called departing Florida Election Official Brenda Snipes, “a fine, very honorable and highly respected voting tactician!” He ended his Monday night tweeting by congratulating Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith’s (R-MS) victory of Democrat Mike Espy. 

Tuesday found President Trump tweeting about Fake News, re-tweeting a call for treason trials to being against his political enemies, including his current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. After re-tweeting several “fan” tweets, President Trump turned his focus to GM, explaining the “chicken tax,” during the chicken tax tweet, he writes, “The President has great power on this issue – Because of the G.M. event, it is being studied now!” In his last tweet for Tuesday morning President Trump praised himself and announced that Steel Dynamics is creating “600 good-paying jobs.”


“They are looking at supposedly stolen Crooked Hillary Clinton Emails (even though they don’t want to look at the DNC Server)” 

As the News Blender reported Special Counsel Robert Mueller has issued a detailed indictment against, “12 Russian Military Officers in the hacking of the DNC, with the intention of impacting the 2016 election.” 

Politifact (PF) reported back in July that based on both the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey and DNC spokeswoman Adrienne Watson, the FBI was able to review information stored on not one server but 140 servers as The Daily Beast noted. 

Comey told the House Intelligence Committee, “We got the forensics from the pros that they hired which — again, best practice is always to get access to the machines themselves, but this, my folks tell me, was an appropriate substitute.” 

Watson’s statement to PF read, “An image of a server is the best thing to use in an investigation so that your exploration of the server does not change the evidence (just like you don’t want investigators leaving their own DNA around a physical crime scene) and so that the bad actors cannot make changes to the evidence while you are looking at it. Any suggestion that they were denied access to what they wanted for their investigation is completely incorrect.”

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller from November 14th, President Trump called for Broward County Supervisor Brenda Snipes to be fired, telling The Daily Caller, “You look at her past, she’s a disaster. Even with me. I won Florida and — you remember? That area, Broward, didn’t come in. You can only put in so many votes, although she may change that system.” He also explained during that interview that, “When people get in line that have absolutely no right to vote and they go around in circles. Sometimes they go to their car, put on a different hat, put on a different shirt, come in and vote again. Nobody takes anything. It’s really a disgrace what’s going on.”

Cindy Hyde-Smith, who made news when video surfaced of her referencing attending a “public hanging,” beat Democrat Mike Espy, becoming the first woman elected Senator in the state of Mississippi. The New York Times election result totals have Hyde-Smith receiving 479,278 votes, while Espy received 410,693 votes. 


The Re-tweets will be covered below President Trump’s Tuesday tweets. 

CNN explains that the “chicken tax,” aka “chicken tariff,” was “imposed by the US in the 1960’s in response to a tariff by some European countries on American poultry exports.” This tariff sparked other duties paid on other products which included foreign-made light trucks. The article goes on to explain that the tariffs went away on everything expect the light trucks. As CNN points out leaving this tariff in place resulted in “Asian automakers,” to manufacture light trucks in North America. 

As was reported @ the News Blender GM explained that while their decision was not based on the 25 percent steel tariff that President Trump placed on foreign imported steel, they did note the tariff has cost the company, $1 billion since it was put in place. 

On Monday Steel Dynamics located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, announced via statement that their Board of Directors had, “authorized the company to construct a new state-of-the-art, electric-arc-furnace (EAF) flat roll steel mill in the United States.” The statement explained the current estimated investment is between $1.7 billion to 1.8 billion adding they anticipate “direct job creation,” of around 600 well-paying jobs. According to the statement construction on the new steel mill will being in 2020, followed by the plant opening in the second half of 2021.  


The Re-tweets 

President Trump re-tweeted four tweets from @ The_Trump_Train. Only two will be shared in the article. The other two re-tweeted tweets can be found here and here

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is still investigating “Russian Collusion” and so far that investigation has resulted, as has been widely reported @ the News Blender in several plea deals among those with connections to President Trump’s election campaign, as well as indictments of several Russian military officers for hacking The DNC server, as well as trying to undermine the 2016 Presidential Election.  

Axios reported on Tuesday that the information The Trump Train tweeted and President Trump re-tweeted based on the $3,874 figure is the amount of financial assistance a refugee family can receive in Canada. 

According to the Refugee Cash Assistance website a refugee family of two in the U.S. receives about $420 a month if “shelter costs” are included, without those added benefits the payment is estimated to be around $256 a month. 

FYI a refugee is not considered an illegal entry alien, they are in fact considered a refugee and granted legal entry into the U.S. and/or Canada. 


President Trump re-tweeted a Dan Bongino tweet from October 29th, 2018. 

President Trump re-tweeted a Charlie Kirk tweet from October 30th, 2018. 

As a reminder newly elected Senator, Cindy Hyde-Smith is a Republican who told a gathered crowd she’d attend a public hanging if the gentleman introducing her invited her to one. 

In late October 2018 during an interview Hillary Clinton teased, joked, whatever you want to call it, with interview Kara Swisher when Swisher mixed up Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), and former Attorney General Eric Holder, stating the former said, “kick them in the shins,” Clinton corrects Swisher that it was Holder that made those remarks, before saying, “I know they all look alike,” to which Swisher immediately replies, “no they don’t, oh, well done.” 


President Trump re-tweeted a “fan account,” there is debate as to if the account is truly a supporter of Vice President Pence, or in fact simply a parody account.
