President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday evening to provide a tongue in cheek statement of congratulations to the newly elected DNC Chairman, Tom Perez.
The president tweeted the following: “Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC. I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!”
Perez was the former labor secretary for the Obama administration, and he was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Considered part of the D.C. establishment, Perez beat out Congressman Ellison for the DNC’s top position. However, Perez wasted no time as the DNC chairman in making the motion for Ellison to be named deputy chair of the DNC.
The president’s sarcastic tweet triggered a reply from Perez on Saturday evening. “Call me Tom. And don’t get too happy. @keithellison and I, and Democrats united across the country, will be your worst nightmare.”
