Trump breaks 40-hour silence on Twitter

President Trump on Sunday tweeted for the first time since news broke that special counsel Robert Mueller had finished his investigation into Russian election interference and possible collusion between the president’s campaign and Moscow. 

“Good Morning, Have A Great Day!” he said in a post on Sunday morning, his first tweet since Friday afternoon. 

“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” he added.

{mosads}Trump, who is typically active on Twitter, had been silent over the weekend, which began with Mueller submitting his confidential report to Attorney General William Barr late Friday.

Trump is spending the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., where he golfed with entertainer Kid Rock on Saturday. 

An aide reportedly said the president is in a “great mood.” 

Conclusions from the Mueller investigation could be shared with Congress as soon as this weekend, Barr told the House and Senate Judiciary committees in a letter circulated on Friday by the Justice Department. 

Trump long railed against the investigation, calling it a politically motivated “witch hunt” and often insisting there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia.

Mueller has not recommended any additional indictments, but the special counsel has already indicted or secured guilty pleas or convictions from several of Trump’s former associates, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen and Trump’s longtime confidant Roger Stone.
