‘No one’s coming’: Trump blasts GOP for ‘firing off the Twitter attack’
President Donald Trump blasted the GOP’s social media team for not doing enough to stop the “firing of off the tweet attack” against the president.
“The Republican National Committee should have fired off the tweets, not fired off their own, they should have said, ‘No, we’re not going to do that.
We’re not gonna do that,'” Trump told reporters Monday.
Trump is taking credit for an email campaign he launched to raise money for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts, saying it showed how much of a “tough guy” he is.
The president has said the emails were sent out by RNC officials and not his staff, but that didn’t stop the barrage of negative tweets.
“You could have fired all of these tweets off, it’s just not good for the country.
And you know why?
Because the American people are going to listen to them and you have to get back to that,” Trump said.
“We’re not doing that.
And I’ve been saying this since the very beginning, I’ve never been afraid to say it, but the people are very tough.”
The president is set to make a major announcement on Tuesday on Hurricane Harvey recovery, and he said Monday that he’s “very much focused on that.”
“I will make a decision at 10:30 p.m. on what to do with Harvey relief,” Trump told the press.
“And I think it’s going to be a very good decision.”
