Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted a reply to President Trump on Friday after he criticized D.C.'s "local politicians" for the incredibly high price tag they put on his proposed military parade, stating that she was the one who "finally got thru to the reality star in the White House. "

"Yup, I’m Muriel Bowser, mayor of Washington DC, the local politician who finally got thru to the reality star in the White House with the realities ($21.6M) of parades/events/demonstrations in Trump America (sad)."
