Trump praises Iran protests and rips Democrats in morning tweets

President took to Twitter on Sunday morning to again voice his support for protesters in Iran and to attack Democrats as the U.S. heads into a crucial midterm election year.

“The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism,” Trump tweeted about Iran. .

Trump then turned his attention to U.S. politics, making sure to include another jab at his Democratic rival in the election, .

Trump said: “Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election.”

The president planned to lunch with Florida Gov. on Sunday, as he spends the holidays in Palm Beach.

White House spokeswoman Helen Ferre said Trump invited the Republican governor “to discuss ongoing hurricane recovery efforts, the need to improve the nation‘s aging infrastructure and other matters important to Floridians.”

Scott spokesman John Tupps said the governor “looks forward to speaking with the president about issues that are important to Floridians like the needed repairs to the federally operated Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee and the recovery of Florida‘s citrus industry from Hurricane Irma.”

Trump has encouraged Scott to challenge U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, a Democrat, in 2018. Scott said earlier in December that he had not made up his mind, though there have been multiple signs he is considering a run.

Trump is spending the holidays at his private club in Palm Beach. He‘s been playing golf at one of his nearby golf courses, and on Friday invited about 60 members of the Coast Guard to join him.
