Just minutes after Tom Perez was elected Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), president Donald Trump fired a sarcastic tweet about Perez new leadership role. And Perez wasted no time to fire back.
Trump tweeted that he “couldn’t be happier for Perez, and the Republican party.”
Perez response was quick, and brilliantly brutal:
“Call me Tom. And don’t get too happy. @keithellison and I, and Democrats united across the country, will be your worst nightmare, Perez wrote.
Perez, the former Secretary of Labor under the Obama Administration, was elected chairman of the DNC on Saturday after a contentious race against Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) for committee chair.
After his victory, Perez suspended the committee rules and named Ellison as his co-chair, sending a message of unity to a party struggling to find its identity in the wake of a bruising campaign year.
