President Trump has made quite a few public appearances this week and pundits are criticizing him for switching up his tone to suit the makeup of the various crowds he has addressed. Now, the president has taken to Twitter to clear it all up on Thursday morning.
“The Fake News is now complaining about my different types of back to back speeches. Well, their [sic] was Afghanistan (somber),” Trump tweeted in a string of messages that contained grammatical errors. “The big Rally (enthusiastic, dynamic and fun) and the American Legion – V.A. (respectful and strong). To [sic] bad the Dems have no one who can change tones!”
Trump is referring to his primetime speech on Afghanistan, which took a somber tone and was followed by a campaign-style rally in Arizona that was filled with his supporters. He also addressed the American Legion on Wednesday in a speech he refers to as “respectful and strong.”
Trump initially sent the tweets regarding his tone twice, but eventually deleted the repeated versions. Meanwhile, Trump wasn’t finished, as he also mocked James Clapper on his favorite form of social media.
Clapper, former director of National Intelligence, questioned Trump’s fitness for office on Wednesday during an appearance on CNN.
“James Clapper, who famously got caught lying to Congress, is now an authority on Donald Trump,” Trump wrote. “Will he show you his beautiful letter to me?”
