Donald Trump's Latest Tweets Have Us Wondering If He Knows He Won The Election
Someone might want to inform Donald Trump he's the president, because sometimes it's not so clear if he's aware.
Trump has tweeted about Hillary Clinton numerous times, and he was at it again on Monday, July 24.
In this case, he inquired as to why “the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered” attorney general aren't looking into Clinton's alleged crimes and “Russia relations.”
To answer his question, this all might have something to do with the fact the U.S. intelligence community concluded Russia interfered in the presidential election in order to aid Trump's candidacy… and he ended up winning.
This was a pretty obvious attempt to change the subject.
Based on this tweet, Trump seemingly thinks the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign is still ongoing — or he's just so overwhelmed by the chaos surrounding his administration he's hoping to use Clinton as a distraction.
But, while we're on this topic, it's worth noting Clinton was cleared by the FBI of any criminal wrongdoing in relation to her use of a private email server as secretary of state.
In other words, she's already been investigated, and most people (but clearly not Trump) have moved on.
Trump seems to have contradicted himself with this tweet as well, given he said he wouldn't pursue an investigation against Clinton shortly after he won the election in November.
At the time, Trump told reporters, “It's just not something that I feel very strongly about.”
Many on Twitter called Trump out for what seemed like a pretty obvious attempt to deflect from everything going on with Russia.
Beyond complaining about Clinton, the president's remark about the attorney general has also caught people's attention.
This isn't the first time Trump has publicly criticized Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In an interview with The New York Times published on July 19, Trump said he wouldn't have picked Sessions for attorney general had he known he'd recuse himself from the Russia investigation.
Subsequently, it was speculated the attorney general might resign or be dismissed, but Sessions said he would stay on as long as it's “appropriate.”
It's not normal for a president to be so overtly critical of members of his or her administration, especially the attorney general (who's supposed to be beholden to the law, not the president).
But, then again, Trump isn't a normal president.
