Trump's Friday Morning Tweetstorm: Crooked Hillary, Kim Jong Un, and Rand Paul

President Trump took to Twitter Friday morning to give some quick thoughts on the healthcare vote, Crooked Hillary, and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. 

With the GOP pushing a vote on their latest healthcare legislation next week, Trump said any Republican who does not vote for it will always been known as the senator to uphold Obamacare. 

“Rand Paul, or whoever votes against Hcare Bill, will forever (future political campaigns) be known as "the Republican who saved ObamaCare,” he wrote.

"The problem I have with this current bill is it basically keeps the Obamacare spending, keeps the Obamacare taxes — most of them — and then actually just redistributes the money from Democrat states to Republican states," Paul told NPR's Ari Shapiro on “All Things Considered.” "So I don't think this really fixes the problem, nor does it honor our pledge to repeal Obamacare."

Paul isn’t the only Republican to worry about, however. The champions of the legislation—Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy—are reportedly working on ways to make the bill more appealing to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who voted against the GOP’s last effort on healthcare along with Sens. John McCain and Susan Collins.

Trump also warned Kim Jong Un he will be tested after the latest round of sanctions.

“Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!” the president said.

Trump’s comments come after a new round of sanctions on financial institutions that do business with the rogue regime.

"It is unacceptable that others financially support this criminal rogue regime," he said earlier this week.

Finally, Trump discussed Hillary Clinton blaming the Russians, again, for her election loss.

“The Russia hoax continues, now it's ads on Facebook. What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary?” he said. “The greatest influence over our election was the Fake News Media "screaming" for Crooked Hillary Clinton. Next, she was a bad candidate!”

Surprisingly, Clinton also blamed the media for her loss.
