Donald Trump’s rise to the Oval Office has been a strange one, indeed, but the unorthodox President isn’t letting the D.C. pressure cramp his style.
This was more than readily apparent yesterday when, seemingly out of the blue, Trump decided to call off the regular press briefing held daily by Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Instead, a visibly irked Commander in Chief addressed the nation at large, lambasting the democratic tactics in the run up to a massive 2,200 page omnibus spending bill landing on his desk.
The bill, which was far too lengthy for anyone to have actually read before voting on it, was an amalgam of democratic nonsense wrapped around the only military spending increase seen in decades. The President woefully lamented that he would be figuratively forced to sign the bill during his impromptu press event – and he certainly wasn’t mincing his words.
President Donald Trump’s remarks after signing a massive $1.3 trillion, 2,232-page spending bill this week made clear he was not happy about doing it.
“It’s not right and it’s very bad for our country,” he told a gathering of reporters.
But the alternative – which some White House aides reportedly said would have included shouldering much of the blame for another government shutdown – didn’t appeal to the president either.
When confronted with the possibility that the left would use a potential shutdown to further disparage the Commander in Chief garnered a far more decisive tone during a private presidential conversation.
“F— that,” Trump reported said when faced with the option, sources told the Wall Street Journal.
We can’t say that we didn’t see that coming.
Trump is the kind of man who tells it like it is. This distinction was a high ranking reality on our own list of the things that President Trump has achieved in spite of the mainstream media’s character assassination campaign.
The irritability of the targeted Trump has been on full display in recent weeks, with another outburst of strong language coming just before firing National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster – something that the President had fully not expected to do.
In a similar outburst last week, Trump reportedly dispelled any notion of firing national security adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, describing such rumors as, “Total f—ing bulls—,” the Journal reported.
Nevertheless, McMaster was ousted Thursday and replaced with John Bolton.
While the left may attempt to pin this change of tone on the stress that the President is under, in reality, this is exactly why Americans overwhelmingly chose Donald Trump to lead us. His no-nonsense attitude could very well be the antidote to the Deep State cabal that has long ruled over the Beltway from the shadows.
And, whether or not Trump can defeat these lurking liberals and turncoat republicans during his first term has yet to be seen. What we do know, however, is that he is getting damn good at exposing the “resistance” rats for all to see.
