President Trump's Tuesday morning Tweetstorm was in direct response to what he watched on "Fox & Friends." From his son-in-law Jared Kushner, to the health care vote and Sen. John McCain's return to Washington, here's how Trump's tweets line up with this morning's episode of "Fox & Friends":
"Fox & Friends" aired both Kushner's statement at the White House Monday, where he said he didn't collude with Russia, as well as Lara Trump's Monday night appearance on "The Story" where she commended Kushner for his transparency.
Trump's tweet: Jared Kushner did very well yesterday in proving he did not collude with the Russians. Witch Hunt. Next up, 11 year old Barron Trump!"
"Fox & Friends" hosts discussed how Sen. McCain, who is undergoing treatment for brain cancer, is returning to the Senate today for this week's health care vote.
Trump's tweet: "So great that John McCain is coming back to vote. Brave - American hero! Thank you John."
"Fox & Friends" discussed several different aspects of the Senate's health care vote this week. They aired a clip of Trump speaking last night about "repealing Obamacare," a woman struggling under the current health system, and later had Sen. Rand Paul and newly-appointed Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as guests to speak about the upcoming vote.
Trump's tweets: "Big day for HealthCare. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate!" ... "ObamaCare is torturing the American People.The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand." ... "This will be a very interesting day for HealthCare.The Dems are obstructionists but the Republicans can have a great victory for the people!"
