Mod: That's one thing about Trump. He doesn't internalize his rage. Even threats that allude to the execution of "spies" are just fine for the gone wild Orange Narcissus.
“I want to know who’s the person, who’s the person who gave the whistleblower the information? Because that’s close to a spy,” the president fumed in front of members of the U.S. Mission to the U.N. in New York City, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”
This time, the president is targeting a whistleblower who raised alarm over Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate ex-veep Joe Biden and his son. The whistleblower’s bombshell report says White House officials sought to cover up a damning July phone call between the leaders by moving its transcript to a different computer server.
Staying true to form, Trump has also been on an almost non-stop Twitter rampage, stating in all caps Thursday morning: “The Democrats are trying to destroy the Republican Party and all that it stands for.”
The tweet was subsequently deleted.
