Trump tweets

Trump asks how SNL can air "without retribution"

President Trump responded to a sketch from NBC's "Saturday Night Live" that mocked his national emergency declaration at the border, asking how networks can air "hit jobs without retribution" and labeling it "the real Collusion" in a Sunday morning tweet:

"Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC! Question is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution? Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!"

The big picture: Throughout his presidency, Trump has repeatedly attacked late-night shows and comedians — including "SNL" — for their adversarial takes on his administration.

Trump mocks Democrats' Green New Deal

President Trump mocked Democrats' Green New Deal resolution in a Saturday tweet, in accurately describing its core goals while sarcastically saying that it is "very important" for them to "press forward" with the idea.

"I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called 'Carbon Footprint' to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military - even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!"

The big picture: Trump has long mocked the idea of climate change, despite overwhelming scientific evidence showing temperatures around the globe are increasing due to human activity. And both Trump and top officials in his administration believe they can unify Republicans as some vocal wings of the Democratic Party embrace socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, as Axios reported earlier this week.
