Of course Trump would need to Tweet if he weren't president. He's been an avid user of the platform since its inception.
While he is a master at manipulating his 6 million tools with his tweets, he'd be doing it regardless of his position. That malignant ego of his needs constant feeding.

If this case goes anywhere the lawyers will have a field day chasing the shake down politicians.
I hope Chelsea's college tuition debt is cleaned up by now!

The 2018 cycle is coming up and President Trump has plenty of time to rally and tweet to remove from office those GOPer's who failed to keep their promises.
Trump made the same promise. Is he going to work to remove himself?

Oh, wait! I forgot the Donald is never responsible for anything. He always shifts the blame.

Taxpayer money was spent to investigate Hillary for seven years. Nothing was found that could be prosecuted.

But I don't hear you complaining.

The GOP "has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats," the suit said. Racketeering, perhaps better known for use in prosecuting organized crime, involves a pattern of illegal behavior by a specific group.
The lawsuit lists as defendants the Republican National Committe and Virginia's two national GOP committee members, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, as well as the Republican Party of Virginia and state party Chairman John Whitbeck.

This is not an isolated feeling. The Republican donors I know in Texas refuse to speak about Trump anymore. All of them feel scammed by the Republicans.

I was with some of these guys just the other day. I was having a great time pointing out how stupid they were to trust Trump. So they all pulled out the 'Did you trust Hillary' thing and I told them they elected Trump and no amount of crying or trying to change the subject would alter that.

I also pointed out I was over Hillary losing but they seemed to not be able to let go of the fact that Trump won.

So are these people going to give to Democrats next time? Nope, but they are not going to give a dime to any current Republican. They are currently searching for someone they can 'work with'.

I told them good luck with that. Did they know any Republican that could be trusted? The only answer was G. W. Bush (and I agree with this) but they will have a tough time convincing him to run for the Senate.

Tell them to give it to Bernie's, he could use another second house on a lake. Like all good people that fight for the poor have. That and the President will probably only need a quarter of the funds the Democrat candidate will need to win again.
The Senators in his own party are not a sure vote for his agenda, so this cycle may not be critical if an R or D win anyhow.

Trumps not the issue here, its GOP campaign promises and banter for the last 7 or so years.

You forget who you're dealing with. I suggest polling your friends who are insider big donor Democrats for insight. I might consider loaning some of mine. From Oklahoma, of course.

I'd contribute to your campaign sloride, might not always agree with you but I would bet you'd be a damn sight better than the current swamp dwellers...

Just to warn you, I doubt I could win. No where near as entertaining, or deceitful as it takes nowadays.
