Trump rips ‘presidential harassment’ against him in late-night tweet

President Trump said late Sunday that he has experienced “presidential harassment” since the start of his term, thanking Fox News personalities who call his work “remarkable.”

{mosads}Trump has previously blamed “presidential harassment” for drops in the stock market and has used the term to describe special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russia’s election interference.

Trump claimed in a tweet last month that “Presidential Harassment by the Dems” was the reason for a sizable drop in the stock market.

“The prospect of Presidential Harassment by the Dems is causing the Stock Market big headaches!” he tweeted hours after Wall Street opened with losses. Last week, stocks saw their worst week since the Great Recession.

Earlier this month, Trump claimed in another tweet that his approval rating would be at 75 percent if not for the “presidential harassment” brought by Mueller’s probe, which he has long dismissed as a “witch hunt.”

“Without the phony Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last almost two years (Tax & Regulation Cuts, Judge’s, Military, Vets, etc.) my approval rating would be at 75% rather than the 50% just reported by Rasmussen,” he wrote. “It’s called Presidential Harassment!”
