New Year, Same Donald: Trump Launches Twitter Tirade Against Chicago Mayor, Obamacare, Media
Longtime Trump nemesis Rosie O'Donnell was among those firing back at the president-elect.
Just three days into 2017 and less than three weeks before Donald Trump takes office, the president-elect took to Twitter to launch his feelings on everything from Chicago violence to repealing Obamacare and international diplomacy.
On Monday, Trump tweeted: “North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won't happen!”

China has been taking out massive amounts of money & wealth from the U.S. in totally one-sided trade, but won't help with North Korea. Nice!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2017
He also took aim at the city of Chicago's soaring murder rate, targeting the Windy City's mayor and former chief of staff to President Obama, Rahm Emanuel.
Chicago murder rate is record setting - 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can't do it he must ask for Federal help!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2017
He also blasted the media’s bias against him during the election.
Various media outlets and pundits say that I thought I was going to lose the election. Wrong, it all came together in the last week and.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2017
I thought and felt I would win big, easily over the fabled 270 (306). When they cancelled fireworks, they knew, and so did I.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 2, 2017
On Tuesday, the attacks continued as he slammed General Motors for sending jobs across the border to Mexico.
General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to U.S. car dealers-tax free across border. Make in U.S.A.or pay big border tax!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
Since Trump's tweet, General Motors hit back at the president-elect in a statement, saying: "GM builds the Chevrolet Cruze hatchback for global markets in Mexico, with a small number sold in the U.S."
Trump also lambasted Obamacare.
People must remember that ObamaCare just doesn't work, and it is not affordable - 116% increases (Arizona). Bill Clinton called it "CRAZY"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
The Democrat Governor.of Minnesota said "The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) is no longer affordable!" - And, it is lousy healthcare.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
On Monday, House Republicans voted to gut the Independent Ethics Office, a move Trump expressed his disapproval of on Tuesday morning.
With all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog, as unfair as it— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
........may be, their number one act and priority. Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance! #DTS— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2017
His longtime foe, Rosie O’Donnell, launched her own Twitter attack on the president-elect, posting, “Donald Trump unfit to be president” and “less than 3 weeks to stop him, America."
The president-elect celebrated the New Year at a formal bash at Mar-A-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida.
