KEY POINTS

  • Trump sets new 1-day record by tweeting 108 times Wednesday
  • The majority of tweets decried the House's intent to impeach
  • Trump also discussed U.S. Space Force formation, NATO conference

With an impeachment vote in the House rapidly approaching, President Donald Trump appears noticeably nervous.

While he set a single day personal record this past Sunday sending over 100 tweets and retweets, on Wednesday Trump managed to top it with 108 posts to Twitter.

Though a vast number of these tweets focused on impeachment, Trump also lauded the passage of a bill in Congress authorizing the creation of the U.S. Space Force, attacked the media over its coverage of Monday’s report clearing the FBI of anti-Trump bias and discussed the recent NATO conference.

Taking the media – CNN, specifically – to task for giving more air time to House Democrats than to Republicans, Trump called the media “fake and in many cases, totally corrupt!”

Trump also retweeted an assertion from GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniels that “Democrats are trying to defraud the country” in their move to file articles of impeachment against the President.

In another tweet concerning impeachment, Trump quoted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) who said the process is “an abuse of the Constitution.”

Another retweet claims the impeachment will “self-destruct” the Democratic Party.

Trump touched on his recent attendance at the NATO conference in London, saying French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, caught on camera apparently mocking the President, were “embarrassed” that Trump managed to have both countries promise greater NATO funding.

It’s clear, both on and off Twitter, that Trump is not having a great week. Between the video of foreign leaders speaking unfavorably of him at NATO being leaked, to the report released Monday by the Department of Justice inspector general asserting that the FBI was justified in investigating the Trump campaign in 2016, and on Tuesday seeing the impeachment process formally begin, the embattled President is feeling the heat. And, in characteristic fashion, Trump took to Twitter to vent his outrage and dispute his opponents.

There’s little doubt that as the impeachment process continues, the President will continue to hog more Twitter bandwidth. Perhaps he will soon even better this latest personal record for most tweets in a single day.
