Tuesday and Wednesday morning were a little disheartening 💔 for Trump 👨🏼, especially since he was watching Hurricane Harvey's devastation 😮 and relief efforts from Texas. Apart from that, a sly threat ⚠️ from North Korea and the Fake News 📰 seem to have only dampened his mood further, so much that he's barely been tweeting! 😱
🐦 The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years. Talking is not the answer!
The tweet, though expected from Trump 👨🏼, seemed to contradict a statement from his top diplomat that the US will continue to seek a peaceful resolution to tensions with Pyongyang. It was not immediately clear what Trump meant by "extortion money," 💰 though previous administrations have tried to defuse nuclear tensions by offering the North Korean regime food and aid packages.
🐦 After witnessing first hand the horror & devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey,my heart goes out even more so to the great people of Texas!
Trump’s tweet 🐦 Wednesday morning appeared to be a delayed response to criticism that his prior comments lacked empathy.
🐦 After reading the false reporting and even ferocious anger in some dying magazines, it makes me wonder, WHY? All I want to do is #MAGA!
The tweet comes one day after Trump and first lady Melania Trump visited southeastern Texas, which has seen devastating flooding 🌊 after Hurricane Harvey made landfall over the weekend. Some coverage focused on the fact that Melania Trump wore stiletto heels when leaving the White House, then switched to white sneakers during the flight.
🐦 Will be leaving for Missouri soon for a speech on tax cuts and tax reform - so badly needed!
