Trump’s twit­ter feed silent on Team USA

Edmonton Journal - - WINTER OLYMPICS -

US. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has a tweet for just about ev­ery­thing, but he’s had noth­ing for Team USA at the Olympic Games as of Wed­nes­day evening.

Among the things Trump has tweeted about since com­pe­ti­tion be­gan Fri­day: the bud­get he signed into law, his de­sire to have more Repub­li­can leg­is­la­tors in Congress and in­fra­struc­ture.

He’s tweeted about job­less claims drop­ping, Na­tional African-Amer­i­can His­tory Month, the “Fake News Me­dia, ” the down­fall of a top aide ac­cused of do­mes­tic abuse and the Florida school shoot­ing.

Miss­ing from his twit­ter feed? Any men­tion of Team USA or words of en­cour­age­ment for the ath­letes com­pet­ing in the Games in South Korea.

Trump did tweet twice last week com­pli­ment­ing the host coun­try for the Win­ter Olympic Games, most re­cently: “Congratulations to the Repub­lic of Korea on what will be a MAG­NIF­I­CENT Win­ter Olympics! What the South Korean peo­ple have built is truly an in­spi­ra­tion!”
