TRUMP TWEET: ISIS & ESPN

After publishing a tweet about the filibuster rules in the Senate, and then a wave of tweets about the terror attack in London, the president sent two more tweets on Friday morning.

The first tweet is about ISIS and how his administration has done so much more than that of former President Obama.

TWEET: “We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years. Must be proactive & nasty!”

The president didn’t offer any specifics about what his administration has done compared to Obama’s, but one response he received from a Twitter user read: “In fight against ISIS, more civilians have already been killed under Trump than under Obama.”

The tweet provided a link to a Newsweek article from Aug. 22. “The U.S.-led coalition fighting the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) has killed more civilians during President Donald Trump’s first seven months in office than in the three years it existed under his predecessor,” reads the opening paragraph.

In the second tweet sent by the president, he targeted ESPN.

TWEET: “ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!”

Trump’s tweets were the president’s first comments on the dispute between the White House and ESPN’s Jemele Hill, a black journalist who co-hosts “SportsCenter.”

Hill called Trump “a white supremacist” on Monday. She accused him of surrounding himself with white supremacists and said he is “the most ignorant, offensive president of my lifetime” whose presidency is “a direct result of white supremacy.”

“He is unqualified and unfit to be president,” she said. “He is not a leader. And if he were not white, he never would have been elected.”

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Wednesday called Hill’s tweets “outrageous” and suggested they amounted to a “fireable offense.”

As usual, the Left’s backlash on Twitter fell in line under the president’s comments.
