President Trump took to Twitter Friday morning in a series of tweets where he touched on a number of subjects including Michael Cohen, the wall, Paul Manafort, fake news, and unemployment.

While the mainstream media continues to spin stories for their narrative, the President gets his messages directly to the American people.

Before heading to Alabama to meet with tornado victims and survey the damage, President Trump let loose in a tweet storm Thursday evening into Friday morning.

Trump began by announcing Thursday evening, “Breaking News @MSNBC: “Cohen’s lawyer contradicts Cohen’s testimony about never seeking a Presidential Pardon.” He added Friday morning, “Bad lawyer and fraudster Michael Cohen said under sworn testimony that he never asked for a Pardon. His lawyers totally contradicted him. He lied! Additionally, he directly asked me for a pardon. I said NO. He lied again! He also badly wanted to work at the White House. He lied!

“I have never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from Mr. Trump,” Cohen said, under oath, last week. But Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis acknowledged in a statement that his client, early on, “was open to the ongoing ‘dangling’ of a possible pardon by Trump representatives privately and in the media.”

According to Fox News, the statement went on: “During that time period, he directed his attorney to explore possibilities of a pardon at one point with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani as well as other lawyers advising President Trump. But after July 2, 2018, Mr. Cohen authorized me as a new lawyer to say publicly Mr. Cohen would never accept a pardon from President Trump even if offered. That continues to be the case. And his statement at the Oversight Hearing was true — and consistent with his post joint defense agreement commitment to tell the truth.” (Continued Below)

Friday morning, President Trump continued, “The Wall is being built and is well under construction. Big impact will be made. Many additional contracts are close to being signed. Far ahead of schedule despite all of the Democrat Obstruction and Fake News!” He added, “We are apprehending record numbers of illegal immigrants – but we need the Wall to help our great Border Patrol Agents!”

The White House has repeatedly stated that President Trump will find funding for the project if Congress refuses to do so.

“In 21 days President @realDonaldTrump is moving forward building the wall with or without the Democrats. The only outstanding question is whether the Democrats want something or nothing,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted in January. (Continued Below)

The President didn’t stop there as he continued his tweetstorm.

The President wrote, “I cannot believe the level of dishonesty in the media. It is totally out of control, but we are winning!” He further declared, “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!”

President Trump reacted to a lighter-than-expected four-year prison sentence delivered to his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, stating the judge felt there was “no collusion” between his campaign and Russia. Under the sentencing guidelines, Manafort could have been sentenced to between 19 and 24 years in prison, but  judge, T.S. Ellis III decided that would have been too harsh.

He wrote, “Both the Judge and the lawyer in the Paul Manafort case stated loudly and for the world to hear that there was NO COLLUSION with Russia. But the Witch Hunt Hoax continues as you now add these statements to House & Senate Intelligence & Senator Burr. So bad for our Country!

“He is not before the court for anything having to do with colluding with the Russian government to influence the election,” Ellis told the court.

The Labor Department says the unemployment rate fell to 3.8 percent from 4 percent, however, and Trump celebrated a drop in women’s unemployment. Additionally, businesses stepped up their competition for workers and raised average hourly pay 3.4 percent from a year earlier, the largest gain in a decade, according to Daily Mail.

The President wrote, “Women’s unemployment rate is down to 3.6% – was 7.9% in January, 2011. Things are looking good!” (Continued Below)

Attributing a quote to a Fox Business host, Trump tweeted: ‘”This is as good a time as I can remember to be an American Worker. We have the strongest economy in the world.” Stuart Varney. So true,’ the president chimed in.“

“On International Women’s Day, we honor women worldwide for their vital role in shaping and strengthening our communities, families, governments, and businesses.” The President wrote praising women.
