Trump rolled out a tweetstorm Tuesday morning covering immigration, the NFL, taxes, health care, and ESPN's Jemele Hill. In his continued frustration with NFL players who kneel during the national anthem, Trump called for a change to tax law: "Why is the NFL getting massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country? Change tax law!"

Background: The NFL gave up its tax exempt status in 2015, but some Republican lawmakers in recent weeks have been toying with the idea of taking away NFL tax breaks.

Trump later claimed ESPN ratings have "tanked" because of ESPN's Jemele Hill, who previously tweeted that Trump was a white supremacist and who was suspended yesterday for her tweets about NFL owners.

In addition to sports, Trump tweeted about immigration policy. "The problem with agreeing to a policy on immigration is that the Democrats don't want secure borders, they don't care about safety for U.S.A.," he tweeted.

  • Background: This weekend Trump laid out his demands for immigration moving forward — including tougher border enforcement, border wall construction, and deporting immigrants who overstay their visas — and Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi were not impressed.

And he's not giving up on repealing and replacing the ACA just yet. "Since Congress can't get its act together on HealthCare, I will be using the power of the pen to give great HealthCare to many people - FAST," he tweeted.

  • Background: Trump's talking about an executive order he is expected to issue this week that would expand access to association health plans and short term insurance.
