On the 18th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, President Donald Trump spent part of his morning Twitter activity attacking unfavorable polls, Fed Chair Jay Powell and the “LameStream Media” for the umpteenth time. Trump started his online proclamations by first posting this subdued photo of himself and Melania Trump, acknowledging the tragic day.
Trump then into an even more impassioned attack on Washington Post and ABC over their latest poll data on his falling approval ratings. Trump wailed about the poll yesterday for showing that Americans fear his policies could lead to recession, and now he’s complaining that his ratings would be much higher if not for the “fake news” media.
….The USA should always be paying the the lowest rate. No Inflation! It is only the naïveté of Jay Powell and the Federal Reserve that doesn’t allow us to do what other countries are already doing. A once in a lifetime opportunity that we are missing because of “Boneheads.” — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
….This is a phony suppression poll, meant to build up their Democrat partners. I haven’t even started campaigning yet, and am constantly fighting Fake News like Russia, Russia, Russia. Look at North Carolina last night. Dan Bishop, down big in the Polls, WINS. Easier than 2016! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
Trump eventually managed to remember what day it is.
If it weren’t for the never ending Fake News about me, and with all that I have done (more than any other President in the first 2 1/2 years!), I would be leading the “Partners” of the LameStream Media by 20 points. Sorry, but true! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
Even so, critics are not impressed with the topics on which Trump was focused given this somber day in U. S. history:
Leaving the White House soon to speak at the Pentagon. My great honor! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 11, 2019
I’m here in Shanksville today, where ceremonies will be held to commemorate the sacrifice of dozens of Americsns on this, the anniversary of the worst terror attack in US history. https://t.co/oEZrNihOgA — Chris Potter (@CPotterPgh) September 11, 2019
