Grotesque on multiple levels. Wagging the dog, using the military for purely political purposes. Deploying massive armed force against a small group of unarmed civilians. And threatening to deny even the right to apply for asylum, which is illegal https://t.co/fBgRdY5ikZ

Trump's creating a situation where the army might gun down innocent people at the border just to score political points before the Midterms.

Caravan is at best 2 months away from border.
Midterms are 1 week away.
Do the math. https://t.co/uX0LD3Cn6c

I thought the Posse Comitatus Act prevented the U.S. Army from doing anything other than being in support of the National Guard . Didn't Trump start to send the Army to the border before and found out they couldn't do anything other than in a supporting role, so he cancelled it ? https://t.co/IWUdYcjYiC

By travelling to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, Trump is ignoring a plea from Pittsburgh's mayor that Trump refrain from visiting "while we are burying the dead."
"Our attention and our focus is going to be on them."
The first funeral is planned for Tuesday.https://t.co/rsXXp64zs4

"Once you arm and have people in synagogues, in mosques, in churches, and schools, you start to have them in daycares … We might as well move into a prison at that point because we're living in a police state."@billpeduto on Trump suggesting armed guards. #Hardball pic.twitter.com/ZBvKoQ1o8V

For a half century, American conservatism and the GOP did a decent job, most of the time, of marginalizing conspiracy theories and repudiating bigotry. But at least for now it’s Trump’s GOP and conservatism, so conspiracy theories and bigotry seem to rule. https://t.co/X0Acf1yPoM

Check out tweets from last two days. I refer to Fake News Media when mentioning Enemy of the People – but dishonest reporters use only the word “Media.” The people of our Great Country are angry and disillusioned at receiving so much Fake News. They get it, and fully understand!

Remember when Trump had to pay all that $ in the Trump U. case? Well, this RICO action against him & fam makes that seem like peanuts. It reveals stunning frauds. Kudos @kaplanrobbie @JoshuaMatz8, Andrew Celli & their colleagues at @KaplanHecker @ecba_llp https://t.co/4uNgs2iNbD

The OBR is brutal on how Brexit has hurt the economy. #Budget2018
– "The vote to Leave appears to have weakened the economy."
– Economy 2 to 2 1/2% smaller than "if referendum had not been called".
– UK from top to "near the bottom" of G7 growth table. https://t.co/i1AI27JssD

The UK is now desperately trying to get an agreement to replace the agreement it already which provides for smooth air and other travel between the UK and the rest of Europe. But that existing agreement is torn up by Brexit. But, hey, says Grayling, it is all the EU's fault. https://t.co/EM6qvrvKfd
