As America’s tensions with North Korea hit apocalyptic proportions, President Trump is going to war with — Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama.
Trump started his Thursday morning with continued Twitter attacks on the Senate majority leader and the former President, showing his inability to get past petty rivalries during one of the most high-stakes weeks of his Presidency.
“Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn’t get it done. Must Repeal & Replace ObamaCare!” he tweeted, his second Twitter attack in two days on McConnell for the GOP’s failed health care reform votes.
Trump also retweeted a poll — from a mysterious Twitter account called Progress Polls — that showed 61% of respondents saying he is a better President than Obama.
Progress Polls appears to be a right-leaning, Twitter-only polling account that recently changed its Twitter handle and has no main website.
It follows only 60 accounts, mostly comprising right-wing politicians, commentators and news outlets.
It has recently run polls showing an overwhelming consensus opposing CNN anchor Jim Acosta, and claiming that a gender wage gap does not exist.
But one poll, from July 26, showed 57% of respondents saying Trump is wrong to ban transgender people from serving in the military.
Most mainstream opinion polls — even from the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports, a Trump favorite — have shown Trump scoring all-time low approval ratings through his first months in office.
Asked about Trump’s McConnell tweets Thursday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters, “Obviously there’s some frustration.”
“I don’t have anything more to add,” she added.
