‘Check The DEMS!’: Trump Throws Major Tantrum On Twitter, Gets Ferocious Response

A Frustrated President Donald Trump on Tuesday lambasted former campaign adviser George Papadopoulos as a “liar” and “low-level volunteer” after it was revealed a day earlier that he had secretly pleaded guilty and struck a cooperation agreement with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump was asked about the indictments during a meeting with business leaders about his tax cut plan at the White House on Tuesday, but he ignored the questions.

Earlier, the president followed up his tweets about the investigation with one more post about tax cuts.

“I hope people will start to focus on our Massive Tax Cuts for Business (jobs) and the Middle Class, (in addition to Democrat corruption)!” he wrote.
