Trump goes on early morning rant after polls show him losing to 5 top Dems: ‘I haven’t started campaigning yet’

President Donald Trump chose to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by lashing out at the polls, which consistently show him losing to Democratic presidential candidates. Not only do the polls show him losing, but losing now by increasing margins.


Showing just how terrified he really is, Trump lobbed lie after lie via Twitter in an early Wednesday morning rant.

Trump once again took issue with an ABC/Washington Post poll – which is rated “A+” by Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight – calling it ” the Amazon Washington Post/ABC.” The Washington Post, which probably more than any other news outlet has broken some of the most damaging stories to the Trump presidency, is privately owned by Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, a multi-billion dollar publicly-traded retailer.

The president also called the poll, which shows him losing to Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, and Pete Buttigieg, “a phony suppression poll, meant to build up their Democrat partners.”

And in an insanely huge lie, Trump insisted, “I haven’t even started campaigning yet, and am constantly fighting Fake News like Russia, Russia, Russia.”

In fact, almost every statement in his Twitter rant was a lie.

For example, Trump has held a dozen campaign rallies in less than a year – since the November 2018 midterms. His last one was in North Carolina 36 hours ago.

Here’s how some are responding to Trump’s tweets:
