So far the President has tweeted 6 times.
1. It is not possible for them to investigate and legislate at the same time.
The Democrats are getting nothing done in Congress. All of their effort is about a Re-Do of the Mueller Report, which didn’t turn out the way they wanted. It is not possible for them to investigate and legislate at the same time. Their heart is not into Infrastructure, lower…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2019
2. A pure fishing expedition like this never happened before, & it should never happen again! [The President is calling for no executive oversight, again.]
….drug prices, pre-existing conditions and our great Vets. All they are geared up to do, six committees, is squander time, day after day, trying to find anything which will be bad for me. A pure fishing expedition like this never happened before, & it should never happen again!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2019
3. THE DO NOTHING PARTY!
The Democrats have become known as THE DO NOTHING PARTY!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2019
4. “dumb as a rock”…totally ill prepared and ill equipped…
Rex Tillerson, a man who is “dumb as a rock” and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State, made up a story (he got fired) that I was out-prepared by Vladimir Putin at a meeting in Hamburg, Germany. I don’t think Putin would agree. Look how the U.S. is doing!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2019
5. I was extremely calm yesterday…[he wasn’t]
I was extremely calm yesterday with my meeting with Pelosi and Schumer, knowing that they would say I was raging, which they always do, along with their partner, the Fake News Media. Well, so many stories about the meeting use the Rage narrative anyway – Fake & Corrupt Press!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2019
6. Move quickly!
When the Democrats in Congress refinish, for the 5th time, their Fake work on their very disappointing Mueller Report finding, they will have the time to get the REAL work of the people done. Move quickly!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 23, 2019
It is not possible for them to investigate and legislate at the same time.
During her opening monologue, Rachel Maddow shows that during the peak of the Watergate Investigation, President Nixon, and Congress managed to pass several bills. She continues moving on to show President Clinton, and Congress also managed to work together as President Clinton faced impeachment.
Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
On Wednesday The Daily Beast was the first to report that on Tuesday Tillerson quietly met with the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
According to the aide that spoke with The Daily Beast the lengthy session touched on Tillerson’s “time working in the Trump administration, the frictions he had with the president’s son-in-law, and efforts to tackle issues like Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
The hush-hush meeting came at a time the White House has sought to block other committees key witnesses from testifying as well as document productions to the same committees.
According to many sources, Tillerson reached out to the Committee and expressed willingness to meet, when he learned the Committee was interested in hearing his testimony.
CNN reported that according to a Democratic House Foreign Affairs Committee aide Tillerson told “lawmakers that Russian President Vladimir Putin was more prepared than President Donald Trump for their meeting in Hamburg, Germany, putting US officials at a disadvantage.”
Tillerson is also reported as saying that Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of President Trump and White House Presidential Adviser, “did not consult with the State Department or other agencies before getting involved in foreign affairs, and that his naïveté put him at risk of being outmaneuvered.”
The Washington Post who was the first to report more in depth details of the secret meeting between the Committee and Tillerson, explains in regards to the President being less prepared than Russian President Vladimir Putin for the leaders meeting in Germany that the U.S., “anticipated a shorter meeting for exchanging courtesies, but it ballooned into a globe-spanning two-hour-plus session involving deliberations on a variety of geopolitical issues, said committee aides, who like others spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss Tillerson’s seven-hour closed meeting with the committee.”
The President in December of 2016 said this of Tillerson via tweet.
The thing I like best about Rex Tillerson is that he has vast experience at dealing successfully with all types of foreign governments.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 13, 2016
A year later…
The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soon – FAKE NEWS! He’s not leaving and while we disagree on certain subjects, (I call the final shots) we work well together and America is highly respected again!https://t.co/FrqiPLFJ1E— Donald J.

3 months later…
Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 13, 2018
On December 7th, 2018, Tillerson told CBS News reporter Bob Schieffer that he and President Trump did not have a common value system. He went on to explain that President Trump, “doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things,” he went on, “the President would say ‘here’s what I want to do and here’s how I want to do it,’ Tillerson would then tell the President, “Mr. President I understand what you want to do, but you can’t do that it that way. It violates the law, it violates a treaty. You know he got really frustrated.”
Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson tells @CBSNews' @bobschieffer that he and President Trump "Did not have a common value system … I'd have to say to him, 'Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way .. You know, he got really frustrated." pic.twitter.com/oI8ocQUJni— Norah O'Donnell🇺🇸 (@NorahODonnell) December 7, 2018
