We’ve reached the 27th day of the House Impeachment Inquiry.
The President has tweeted 3 times so far.
To finish Friday, the President tweeted/retweeted 13 more times, giving him a total of 24 tweets/retweets. 11 of those tweets were covered @ the News Blender.
Saturday was a big day. He tweeted 22 times and retweeted 38 times.
Trump Twitter Archive and I don’t agree on the number of tweets/retweets, they recorded 60 for Saturday. I counted 57 plus 2 random retweets sent at 2:30 a.m. eastern time [which would count for Sunday]. Since the archive’s time is set for GMT, that would explain the disagreement. I will differ to the archive and say he had 60 tweets for Saturday.
Sunday the President tweeted 18 times and retweeted 6 times giving him a total of 24 tweets.
That means since Friday he has tweeted/retweeted 108 times, 11 covered in the Friday Open Thread.
The President confirmed that Energy Secretary Rick Perry would be leaving at the end of year. He announced his intent to nominate Deputy Secretary Dan Brouillette to replace Perry.
I want to thank Secretary of Energy Rick Perry for the outstanding job he has done. He will be leaving at the end of the year to pursue other interests. Rick was a great Governor of Texas and a great Secretary of Energy….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2019
….He is also my friend! At the same time, I am pleased to nominate Deputy Secretary Dan Brouillette to be the new Secretary of Energy. Dan’s experience in the sector is unparalleled. A total professional, I have no doubt that Dan will do a great job!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2019
Energy Secretary Rick Perry To Resign https://t.co/AzqJtAoMVT— Snip🦈Bytes (@SnipBytes) October 18, 2019
I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have…— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 20, 2019
…..its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 20, 2019
….Therefore, based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020. We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 20, 2019
I included the video from Fox News, to show the order of events that led to his announcement that the G7 would not be held at Trump National Doral, in June 2020.
We should never forget what they suggested hosting a government event at our President’s personally owned hotel, is a crime.
18 USC §208(a) makes it a federal crime for an officer or employee of the executive branch to participate personally and substantially in awarding a government contract in which he has a financial interest.— A Crime a Day (@CrimeADay) October 18, 2019
The New York Times reported that prior to his announcement that they would be seeking a new venue, “Democrats in the House and Senate quickly introduced legislation intended to block the use of the Doral, a bill they called “Trump’s Heist Undermines the G7,” or the Thug Act. The measure would have blocked the use of federal funds for the Group of 7 if the event were held at the Doral.”
Interestingly enough in their article they note that:
Lawyers who have served in both Republican and Democratic administrations objected to the selection of the Doral, including several who emphasized that even though Mr. Trump, as president, is exempt from a federal conflict-of-interest statute, his role in the matter was improper.The New York Times.
Question: How come the President, not just President Trump, but Presidents, seem to be so immune from rules and laws, that governor the executive branch, for example, the President is also immune to Hatch Act Violations. Seems to me some of what is wrong within our Republic, is the idea, that the President doesn’t have to follow the same rules as other Federal Government employees. Just food for thought.

“The ceasefire is holding up very nicely. There are some minor skirmishes that have ended quickly. New areas being resettled with Kurds. U.S. soldiers are not in combat or ceasefire zone. We have secured the Oil.” Mark Esper, Secretary of Defense. Ending endless wars!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 20, 2019
In his original tweet where he misquoted his Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he also gave him a new last name.
In the reissue tweet he apparently still misquoted Esper according to Idress Ali, a Reuters Foreign Correspondent.
Esper’s quote to us: " I think overall the ceasefire generally seems to be holding, we see a stabilization of the lines, if you will, on the ground, and we do get reports of intermittent fires, this and that, that doesn't surprise me necessarily.”— Idrees Ali (@idreesali114) October 20, 2019
On Monday Idrees Ali reported a likely answer to “we have secured the oil.”
Speaking with reporters in Kabul, U.S. Defense Secretary Esper says there are discussions about keeping some troops in northeastern Syria near oil fields with SDF forces to deny Islamic State and "others" potential revenue from them.— Idrees Ali (@idreesali114) October 21, 2019
Esper said no decision had been made and that had not been presented to Trump.— Idrees Ali (@idreesali114) October 21, 2019
"We presently have troops in a couple of cities that (are)located right near that area… There has been a discussion about possibly doing it (keeping some troops), there has been no decision with regard to numbers or anything like that," Esper said.— Idrees Ali (@idreesali114) October 21, 2019
From the deleted tweet: Bringing soldiers home.
From the reissued tweet: Ending endless wars.
On Sunday Esper told reporters that the 1,000 troops withdrawing from Syria would head to Iraq on two missions, “One is to help defend Iraq and two is to perform a counter ISIS mission as we sort through the next steps.”
As noted up thread the President has tweeted 3 times so far.
Great new book by wonderful and very street smart author Dan Bongino, EXONERATED, THE FAILED TAKEDOWN OF PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP BY THE SWAMP. Dan hits all of the crooked points of the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Nevertheless, the Scam continues!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2019
THE DEMS TRIED THIS BEFORE. My new book “Exonerated: The Failed Takedown of President Donald Trump by the Swamp” blows the doors off of the “plug & play” scheme to destroy Trump. We uncovered the “movie script” they used to set up Trump.— Dan Bongino (@dbongino) October 21, 2019

It should be noted there are other reports from government officials out there that explain Russia did interfere with our election pushing President then-candidate Trump. I just lack the time to include them all.
Censure (at least) Corrupt Adam Schiff! After what he got caught doing, any pol who does not so vote cannot be honest….are you listening Dems?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2019
NBC News reports that House Republicans “are planning to try to force a vote on the House floor Monday evening on a resolution to censure House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., accusing him of conveying a “false retelling” of the phone conversation between President Donald Trump and Ukraine’s president that’s at the center of the impeachment inquiry.”
The bill was introduced by Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs (R), who chairs the House Freedom Caucus.
We will vote today on a resolution I cosponsored with 173 members condemning #AdamSchiff for the way he has abused his power to mislead the American people.We serve in Congress as Americans, not as a party. We must stand for truth and restore integrity back to the body of the HOR pic.twitter.com/pVkYaPpTfM— Rep. Lloyd Smucker (@RepSmucker) October 21, 2019
Doral in Miami would have been the best place to hold the G-7, and free, but too much heat from the Do Nothing Radical Left Democrats & their Partner, the Fake News Media! I’m surprised that they allow me to give up my $400,000 Plus Presidential Salary! We’ll find someplace else!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 21, 2019
You know what I love?— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 21, 2019
I love how this is eating you alive.
The mismatch between the economic status of your supporters and the price point of your resorts is exactly why you keep flogging the hell out of them.
Your brand is failing, broken, and poisonous. https://t.co/MfaSZwnjWO
