President Impeached for Monday has tweeted 4 times so far.
President Impeached says reports are wrong the OPEC will be cutting oil production by 10 million barrels in fact, it’s 20 million.
Having been involved in the negotiations, to put it mildly, the number that OPEC+ is looking to cut is 20 Million Barrels a day, not the 10 Million that is generally being reported. If anything near this happens, and the World gets back to business from the Covid 19…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 13, 2020
….disaster, the Energy Industry will be strong again, far faster than currently anticipated. Thank you to all of those who worked with me on getting this very big business back on track, in particular Russia and Saudi Arabia.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 13, 2020
On March 9th…
Good for the consumer, gasoline prices coming down!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 9, 2020
Market Watch reported on Sunday, that OPEC, Russia, and other nations “finalized an unprecedented production cut of nearly 10 million barrels, or a tenth of global supply, in hopes of boosting crashing prices amid the coronavirus pandemic and a price war, officials said.”
Who are the officials that said it was 9.7 million barrels well:
Mexico’s Energy Minister Rocio Nahle tweeted:
México agradece todo el apoyo de los países de la @OPECSecretariat en la reunión extraordinaria realizada el día hoy. El acuerdo unánime de los 23 países participantes dará de inicio una reducción en la plataforma petrolera de 9.7 millones de barriles a partir de Mayo. pic.twitter.com/izkMLoYpni— Rocío Nahle (@rocionahle) April 12, 2020
Twitter translate: Mexico appreciates all the support of the countries @OPECSecretariat at today’s extraordinary meeting. The unanimous agreement of the 23 participating countries will start a reduction in the oil rig of 9.7 million barrels from May.
OPEC tweeted a statement:
Number 2 from the statement:
Adjust downwards their overall crude oil production by 9.7 mb/d, starting on 1 May 2020, for an initial period of two months that concludes on 30 June 2020. For the subsequent period of 6 months, from 1 July 2020 to 31 December 2020, the total adjustment agreed will be 7.7 mb/d. It will be followed by a 5.8 mb/d adjustment for a period of 16 months, from 1 January 2021 to 30 April 2022. The baseline for the calculation of the adjustments is the oil production of October 2018, except for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and The Russian Federation, both with the same baseline level of 11.0 mb/d. The agreement will be valid until 30 April 2022, however, the extension of this agreement will be reviewed during December 2021.OPEC. 04/12/2020.
But but but it’s really 20, but no worries, as long as it’s close, say that 9.7 million cut, President Impeached is still right, according to the metrics in his good brain.
He moves on to explain that reporting that says he does not have the legal authority to lift States of Emergency are “incorrect.”
For the purpose of creating conflict and confusion, some in the Fake News Media are saying that it is the Governors decision to open up the states, not that of the President of the United States & the Federal Government. Let it be fully understood that this is incorrect….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 13, 2020
….It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue. A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 13, 2020
President Trump is flat-out wrong. The president has no authority to “close down” or “open up” the states. He’s the one creating conflict and confusion. Put down the authoritarianism and read the Constitution. https://t.co/3AFqRx7YTX— Justin Amash (@justinamash) April 13, 2020
After weeks of his advisers pointing out that Republicans believe in states’ rights to explain why this is a states’ decision, the president asserts that no, it’s his. https://t.co/egjFuATDsl— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 13, 2020
Kill the 10th Amendment to own the libs. Amiright? https://t.co/dBJt4cYjZ4— reedgalen (@reedgalen) April 13, 2020
Apparently President Impeached was watching CNN and live tweeted his incorrect statement that he is responsible for when State’s reopen.
Hmmmm.— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) April 13, 2020

In Friday’s rally President Impeached announced that he would on Tuesday announce a second task force focused on reopening the economy.
Some familiar faces responses to the Impeached President’s King like tweet.
I am sure the pro-federalism GOP will make a brave stand against this overreach by the federal… Ah, I can't even write it with a straight face. https://t.co/bWCqUVhAK1— Andrew "[Joke has been redacted]" Sherrod (@MyMagnifOctopus) April 13, 2020
You are so dumb about how states rights work.— Newshound (@NewsiesNeighbor) April 13, 2020
Just so you know.
We can just add it to the trillion other things, you are too stupid to understand. https://t.co/S3o2Ej4i58
Thank GOD most Governors ignored your incompetent blabbering and shut down their states themselves.— MegaYanni (@mega_yanni) April 13, 2020
You did nothing but deny, deflect, and delay, you addled pathetic excuse for a "man"!
Authors note: Over the weekend, specifically on Sunday, the “I don’t take responsibility all,” Impeached President melted down on Twitter. As there is every chance several of those tweets will spark presser questions, I will be highlighting some of the more stupid and lame ones in that thread, posted later today.
Here’s Trump’s public schedule for tomorrow. (Public schedules don’t include all of a president’s activities.) pic.twitter.com/GSRGaIk92e— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) April 13, 2020
