President Donald Trump has issued a flurry of tweets on a wide range of topics, including one claiming he has ordered the declassification of all documents related to the Russian collusion probe and another calling delays in a coronavirus vaccine a ‘political hit job’.
‘New FDA Rules make it more difficult for them to speed up vaccines for approval before Election Day. Just another political hit job!,’ Trump tweeted on Tuesday from the White House.
Earlier in the day, the FDA said vaccine makers should follow trial participants for at least two months to rule out any major side effects before seeking emergency approval — a timeline that will rule out any hope of a vaccine before the November 3 election, as Trump had often promised.
In a separate tweet, he wrote: ‘I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!’
Trump salutes at the White House on Monday night. He went on a Twitter rampage on Tuesday, tweeting about a variety of topics
It came as a response to a tweet from Hoover Institution media fellow Paul Sperry, whom Trump also retweeted more than a dozen times in the span of an hour.
Trump has previously vowed to declassify documents related to the FBI’s 2016 Trump-Russia investigation, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s subsequent probe, which found no proof that the Trump campaign criminally conspired with the Russian government.
Indeed, in a follow-up tweet, Trump wrote: ‘All Russia Hoax Scandal information was Declassified by me long ago. Unfortunately for our Country, people have acted very slowly, especially since it is perhaps the biggest political crime in the history of our Country. Act!!!’
‘So I had to constantly fight off all of this Scum, achieve more than any other President in First Term, and then they talk Chaos. They created crimes against me and this administration!’ Trump added in a retweet of Fox News commentator Greg Jarrett, in reference to the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe.
‘Can’t believe these con men are not yet being PROSECUTED. Pathetic!’ Trump said of the FBI investigators.
Other targets of the president’s ire included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace.
‘Wear your mask in the “beauty” parlor, Nancy!’ he said of Pelosi, in reference to surveillance footage that captured her visiting a San Francisco salon without a face covering, in violation of the city’s lockdown rules.
‘Chris Wallace was a total JOKE. Protected Joe all night long. He’s no Mike!!!’ Trump tweeted of the newsman who moderated last week’s presidential debates, comparing him unfavorably to his father Mike Wallace.
Trump’s tweetstorm on Tuesday night followed an earlier tweet that sent stock markets crashing, when he said there would be no deal with Democrats on additional pandemic stimulus until after the election.
While some theorized that it might be a negotiation tactic, others pointed to one of the medications Trump is taking to treat coronavirus, Dexamethasone, a steroid that can have side affects of mania, aggression and psychosis.
