It’s Wednesday.

So far for Wednesday President Trump has tweeted 1 time.

To finish Tuesday the President tweeted 6 more times and re-tweeted 4 times.

In one of the tweets from Tuesday the President shared a 2020 reelection campaign video.

As the Washington Post explains, the two-minute video featured a musical score and contained “footage of Washington monuments and government buildings is interspersed with shots of former president Barack Obama. “First they ignore you,” text against a black background reads. “Then they laugh at you. Then they call you racist.” The footage shows the Clintons and comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer. Then, as the soundtrack swells, the footage switches to images of Trump and crowds at his rallies.”

BuzzFeed News reports that within three hours the video had, “amassed over 1 million views,” the video has now be removed, as the article explains the musical score was from Warner Bros. Pictures 2012 film, The Dark Knight Rises. 

Late Tuesday Warner Bros. issued a statement, “The use of Warner Bros.’ score from The Dark Knight Rises in the campaign video was unauthorized. We are working through the appropriate legal channels to have it removed.”

Wednesday as President Trump was awaiting departure from D.C. to Texas, he spoke with reporters.

The tweet has been removed, but early Wednesday he appeared like this.

Regarding the Mueller Report.

He once again calls the investigation illegal. He calls those that started the investigation “dirty cops.” He once again calls the investigation an “attempted coup.” He accused the investigators of committing treason.

After he called the investigation an “illegal witch hunt,” he went on to say “I have not seen the Mueller Report. I have not read the Mueller Report. I won. No collusion. No obstruction. I won. Everybody knows I won. And the pro’s knew it was illegal started. The whole thing was illegal. I have not seen the Mueller Report. I have no read the Mueller report. As far as I’m concerned I don’t care about the Mueller Report. I’ve been totally exonerated. No collusion. No obstruction.”

After listing things he is now “off to dealing with,” he concludes by stating, “I’m not worrying about something that never ever should have taken place.”

On releasing his taxes.

He tells us he’s under audit, again, still, the longest audit in history of audits.

“There is no law. As you know I got elected last time with the same issue and while I’m under audit, I won’t do it. If I’m not under audit. I would do it. I have no problem with it.”

For What it’s Worth: As has been said many, many, many, many, times, the Russian investigation started as a Counterintelligence investigation, triggered by Russian’s attempting to gain access to U.S. political campaigns. Not illegal, in fact, that’s how counterintelligence works.

The Washington Post reported on Wednesday morning that “With the vast majority of votes counted in Israeli elections by Wednesday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu looked set to clinch a fifth term in office, despite corruption charges and a strong challenger.”

About ninety-seven percent of the votes have been counted, “both Netanyahu’s Likud party and Gantz’s Blue and White were tipped to win 35 seats in Israel’s 120-member Knesset, or parliament.”

The final results are expected to come by late Thursday according to the Central Elections Committee, that oversees the process.
