The Twitter outbursts are nothing new from the president and are increasingly typical on the weekends. But they were still notable after one of the most tumultuous weeks of his presidency.

Trump is under increasing pressure with regard to the impeachment inquiry after acting White House chief of staffMick Mulvaney(John (Mick) Michael Mulvaney) Florida GOP lawmaker says he’s’ thinking ‘about impeachmentDemocrats introduce’ THUG Act ‘to block funding for G-7 at Trump resortOvernight Defense – Presented by Boeing – Trump insists Turkey wants cease-fire | Fighting continues in Syrian town | Pentagon chief headed to Mideast | Mattis responds to criticism from Trump(MORE)undermined the administration’s talking points and linked aid withheld from Ukraine to Trump’s calls for Ukraine’s government to launch investigations into the 2016 election. Mulvaney later sought to walk back the comments, which were made on camera.

Trump defended Mulvaney in one of his Saturday tweets, repeating a line from the chief of staff’s statement explaining that the money was withheld because “of concern about LACK OF SUPPORT FROM OTHER NATIONS and CONCERNS OVER CORRUPTION,” adding capital letters for emphasis.

“The President never told me to withhold any money until the Ukrainians did anything related to the server. The only reason we were holding the money was because of concern about LACK OF SUPPORT FROM OTHER NATIONS and CONCERNS OVER CORRUPTION. ”Yesterday’s Mick Mulvaney statement

Just as dramatically, Trump came under fierce criticism from Republicans for his decision to withdraw troops from northern Syria. The decision led to a Turkish invasion and criticism that Trump had abandoned Kurdish forces that had helped the U.S.

Most of Trump’s own tweets on Saturday targeted Democrats, including one in the morning that repeated his criticism that the opposing party is ignoring legislation that could help the country and is instead focused on impeachment.

“Such a disgrace that the Do Nothing Democrats are doing just as their name suggests , Doing Nothing! USMCA anyone? ” he added in a second tweet Saturday morning, referring to a trade agreement with Mexico and Canada currently being considered by Congress.

Around noon, the president tweeted again, quoting former Whitewater prosecutor Ken Starr: “I don’t see anything that constitutes an Impeachable offense – Nothing here rises to the level of Impeachment. The Democrats are making a mistake with this secrecy. ”
