|Ellen Cranley, Business Insider|AIWA! NO!|President Donald Trump lashed out at liberal billionaire Tom Steyer Sunday, two days after authorities intercepted a suspicious package meant for the top Democratic donor.
Trump wrote that “Wacky Tom Steyer,” in a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” with host Jake Tapper, “comes off as a crazed & stumbling lunatic who should be running out of money pretty soon.”
The president added: “As bad as their field is, if he is running for president, the Dems will eat him alive!”
Just watched Wacky Tom Steyer, who I have not seen in action before, be interviewed by @jaketapper. He comes off as a crazed & stumbling lunatic who should be running out of money pretty soon. As bad as their field is, if he is running for President, the Dems will eat him alive!
Steyer, who has launched a campaign to have Trump impeached, including national ads and pledges of up to $120 million towards November’s midterm elections, appeared Sunday morning on CNN to condemn what he described as “consistent, systematic political violence from Republicans” that harshens political divides.
Steyer was responding to Tapper’s question about a since-deleted tweet from House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy that took aim at prominent Democratic donors, which Steyer called a “straight-up anti-Semitic move.”
“We cannot allow Soros, Steyer, and Bloomberg to BUY this election! Get out and vote Republican November 6th. #MAGA,” McCarthy wrote in the Tuesday tweet that was deleted a day later.
The tweet referenced top Democratic donors George Soros and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in addition to Steyer
