President Donald Trump, who is on vacation during his golf review in
New Jersey, took to Twitter to conflict Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a
Connecticut Democrat, for a second time on Monday.
The boss rehashed his evidence that Blumenthal is a “con
artist” for claiming to have served in a Vietnam War, when, in
fact, a senator deferred abroad troops use and instead
served domestically in a reserves.
“I consider Senator Blumenthal should take a good prolonged vacation in
Vietnam, where he lied about his service, so he can during slightest say
he was there,” Trump
wrote only before 5 p.m. ET.
This comes after Trump sent a array of tweets on Monday morning
aggressive Blumenthal’s credit only mins after a senator
criticized a boss and his administration during a CNN
“Interesting to watch Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut
articulate about hoax Russian collusion when he was a artificial Vietnam
criminal artist!” Trump wrote
only before 8 a.m. ET, referring to stating in 2010 that
Blumenthal had regularly settled or pragmatic he had served in
Vietnam when in fact he performed 5 troops deferments.
Trump’s tweets came shortly after a CNN interview in which
a senator indicted a administration of “politicizing” the
Department of Justice and argued that a review of
probable collusion between a Trump debate and Russia “must be
“Never in U.S. story has anyone lied or defrauded electorate like
Senator Richard Blumenthal,” Trump continued.
“He told stories about his Vietnam battles and conquests, how
dauntless he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and
begged for redemption like a child. Now he judges collusion?”
Blumenthal seemed on CNN for a second time on Monday, just
mins after Trump’s afternoon tweet, and argued that the
attacks are a daze from a Russia review and
issues of inhabitant security.
“There is an ongoing special warn review — it is real,
it is formed on fact,” Blumenthal told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “That’s
what is important. That concentration is what unequivocally matters.”
Earlier on Monday, a senator indicted Trump of bullying him.
“Mr. President: Your bullying hasn’t worked before and it won’t
work now. No one is above a law,” Blumenthal tweeted.
“This emanate isn’t about me — it’s about a Special Counsel’s
autonomy and integrity.”
This isn’t a initial time a boss has retaliated against
a senator for his critique of a administration.
In February, Trump indicted Blumenthal of misrepresenting
remarks that Neil Gorsuch, afterwards a hopeful for a Supreme
Court, done to a senator concerning Trump’s
attempts to delegitimize a sovereign judge. Trump retaliated
opposite Blumenthal on Twitter, bringing adult his “major lie” about
his troops record.
Trump pounded Blumenthal again
in May after a senator criticized his preference to glow FBI
Director James Comey. Repeating his attacks, Trump accused
Blumenthal of devising “one of a biggest troops frauds in
U.S. history” and argued that a senator “should be investigated
for his acts.”
