President Trump blasted out a wide range of Twitter posts throughout the day on Tuesday.  He started by encouraging former Major League Baseball star Curt Schilling to run for congress, after hearing that Schilling was considering a run in Arizona.  Trump tweeted:

Curt Schilling, a great pitcher and patriot, is considering a run for Congress in Arizona. Terrific! @foxandfriends

The president blasted CNN anchor Chris Cuomo over his profanity-laced attack against a journalist who called him “Fredo.” Cuomo declared the label was comparable to the N-word, and tore into the man with a string of profane words of his own.  Trump tweeted, “Would Chris Cuomo be given a Red Flag for his recent rant? Filthy language and a total loss of control. He shouldn’t be allowed to have any weapon. He’s nuts!”

Donald Trump Jr. noted that YouTube had removed the video of Cuomo’s rant from their platform, and President Trump demanded in a Twitter post, “Put it back up. We are living with a Rigged & Fake Media!”  The video is reportedly back up on YouTube.

President Trump spoke out on China in two separate tweets. He wrote:

Through massive devaluation of their currency and pumping vast sums of money into their system, the tens of billions of dollars that the U.S. is receiving is a gift from China. Prices not up, no inflation. Farmers getting more than China would be spending. Fake News won’t report!

As usual, China said they were going to be buying “big” from our great American Farmers. So far they have not done what they said. Maybe this will be different!

The president also BLASTED the New York Times, by sharing a comment from a “highly respected NY Post columnist. He tweeted:

ALL THE NEWS THAT’S NOT FIT TO PRINT! “The New York Times is no longer the paper we grew up with. It is no longer a news organization. It is now an agenda driven organization out to change the Country (for the worse!).” Michael Goodwin, Highly Respected New York Post Columnist.

President Trump mocked one of his 2020 Democrat contenders, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, by sharing an article originally tweeted by Donald Trump Jr., which indicated that de Blasio only drew a crowd of 15 people for an event in Iowa.

Other tweets from the president on Tuesday include the following:
