President Donald Trump is under investigation for obstructing justice in the country. The news must have come as no surprise for the common people who have seen his antics over the last few months since he came to occupy the White House.
But the news seems to be rather tough for the President who thought that he had become untouchable after assuming the President of the US job. His frustration was writ large in a series of tweet that he fired early morning today.
With the tweets he not just showed that he was indeed frustrated by the development but also that Comey’s firing had apparently caused the investigation. “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt,” the president declared in one of the tweets he fired early Friday morning.
The President’s rant was accompanied by his oft repeated accusations against the ‘fake news media’. In this first tweet, Trump then went on to add that there has been no proof of “collision with the Russians.” Seven months ago was November, when Trump was elected president. Next, he again defended his constant use of social media outlets like Twitter, insisting that he has “over 100 million people” following him. He suggests that this is the best way for him to reach directly to the American people.
Trump has always feigned victimhood. In one tweet he once against claimed victimhood saying, “Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great. Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up,” he wrote. President Trump, without doubt has huge fan following on the media. He has 32.4 million followers for @RealDonaldTrump, and 18.8 million followers on @POTUS. The verified Trump Facebook page has 22.4 million followers, while the verified President Donald J. Trump page has just 1.7 million followers. The White House Instagram page has 3.6 million followers.
A CNN report said, “It wasn’t immediately clear to whom Trump was referring, though the man who wrote a memo recommending Comey’s firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, was also the official who approved the appointment of a special counsel to look into Russian election meddling…It was also not clear if Trump’s comment was based on news reports or if the White House had been given official notice…Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters about the ongoing Russia controversy as he departed the White House Friday for Miami. The questions included whether he had confidence in Rosenstein, whether he plans to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and how he knows he’s under investigation by the FBI”.
