Earlier this morning, President Trump heavily re-tweeted Tom Fitton, who is the president of Judicial Watch. Subjects of the re-tweets were very familiar and personal to Trump, including: Robert Mueller, Hillary Clinton, Andrew McCabe, and the DOJ, among others:
As Tropical Storm Barry approached Louisiana’s coast Saturday morning, nearing hurricane status and leaving more than 46,000 people in the state without power, President Donald Trump conjured up a storm of his own on Twitter.
Trump retweeted 24 tweets between 7:30 and 8:30 AM, 11 of which were from a verified account called Judicial Watch that describes itself as a “conservative non-partisan educational foundation promoting transparency, accountability, & integrity in government” in its bio.
Trump also quote-tweeted twice in the same time frame, once to call former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe “a major sleazebag.” Trump accused McCabe of taking “massive amounts of money from Crooked Hillary reps, for wife’s campaign, while Hillary was under ‘investigation’ by FBI!”
Trump also quote-tweeted Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, who accused Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office of deleting texts “of corrupt FBI officials Lisa Page & Peter Strzok,” who Fitton then claimed were anti-Trump, “pro-Clinton FBI lovers who were running the Clinton’s Trump-Russia spy op” in the same tweet.
Trump also used the opportunity to promote his golf courses:
Three of the most spectacular golf courses in the world ⛳ @TrumpGolf

This isn’t the first time President Trump has promoted his golf courses from his Twitter account.
President Trump also retweeted Vice-President Pence after he visited a migrant facility, and accused CNN of “ignoring the excellent care being provided to families and children,” and said that the “American people deserve the whole story form CNN”.
