In response to Democrats and the mainstream media continuously suggesting the United States is facing a “constitutional crisis” in the wake of the Mueller report, President Trump took to social media on Sunday to respond, calling the notion “pathetically untrue.”
“The Democrats’ new and pathetically untrue soundbite is that we are in a ‘constitutional crisis,’ said Trump, who said Democrats “and their partner, the Fake News Media, are all told to say this as loud and as often as possible.”
Trump continued, “They are a sad JOKE!” while touting various successes during his administration, going on to further denounce the claims of collusion, despite his vindication, as the true constitutional crisis.
Democrats, including Jerry Nadler and Nancy Pelosi, along with various mainstream media pundits, have repeatedly speculated on the alleged “crisis” since Trump was cleared of wrongdoing following the Mueller investigation’s conclusion.
From The Hill:
President Trump on Sunday took to Twitter to excoriate Democrats and the media over the suggestion that the U.S. is facing a constitutional crisis, calling the assertion “a pathetically untrue soundbite.”
“The Democrats new and pathetically untrue sound bite is that we are in a ‘Constitutional Crisis,'” Trump wrote in multiple tweets. “They and their partner, the Fake News Media, are all told to say this as loud and as often as possible. They are a sad JOKE! We may have the strongest Economy in our history, best employment numbers ever, low taxes & regulations, a rebuilt military & V.A., many great new judges, & so much more.”
Trump went on to claim that the real constitutional crisis is “a giant SCAM perpetrated upon our nation, a Witch Hunt, a Treasonous Hoax.” The president has often used those terms to describe the FBI and special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigations into Russia’s election interference. He later said the Democrats were acting like “crazed lunatics” in the wake of the Mueller probe’s end and that the only constitutional crisis is “the Democrats refusing to work.”
His tweets come after prominent Democrats, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), last week made the assertion that the country is experiencing a constitutional crisis.
