Trump began his day criticizing the FBI and claiming the now-famous dossier containing allegations about his connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin is a “pile of garbage.”
Trump, who is vacationing at his private estate in Mar-a-Lago, appeared to be watching and quoting from the morning cable-news show “Fox and Friends” while tweeting.
“WOW, @foxandfrlends ‘Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.’ And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!,” Trump tweeted.
Trump has no public events on his official schedule Tuesday and he headed out to Trump International Golf Club shortly after sending his morning tweets. He is golfing there with Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., PGA tour player Bryson DeChambau and former PGA player Dana Quigley.
Earlier Tuesday morning, Trump touted the tax cut bill he signed into law last week before leaving Washington for his holiday vacation. He took a jab at the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act, and promised to “develop a great new HealthCare plan” to replace it.
“Based on the fact that the very unfair and unpopular Individual Mandate has been terminated as part of our Tax Cut Bill, which essentially Repeals (over time) ObamaCare,” Trump tweeted, “the Democrats & Republicans will eventually come together and develop a great new HealthCare plan!”
