President Trump slammed the billionaire Koch brothers in his first two Twitter posts early Tuesday morning, just one day after they declared they would not be supporting a Republican candidate in a key North Dakota Senate race.

Trump tweeted:

The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade. I never sought their support because I don’t need their money or bad ideas. They love my Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judicial picks & more. I made…..

…them richer. Their network is highly overrated, I have beaten them at every turn. They want to protect their companies outside the U.S. from being taxed, I’m for America First & the American Worker – a puppet for no one. Two nice guys with bad ideas. Make America Great Again!

The president also commented on conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, tweeting,  “Rush Limbaugh is a great guy who truly gets it!”

Trump then doubled down on his insistence for a border wall and better border security, tweeting:

One of the reasons we need Great Border Security is that Mexico’s murder rate in 2017 increased by 27% to 31,174 people killed, a record! The Democrats want Open Borders. I want Maximum Border Security and respect for ICE and our great Law Enforcement Professionals! @FoxNews

President Trump also re-tweeted two posts by New York Times photographer Doug Mills, which included photographs from two events on Monday.
