Trump on DNC

Following the departure of Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as the head of the Democratic National Committee due to controversy surrounding the primary election, a new leader was imminent. Former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez and Rep. Keith Ellison were the two with the best chance to pull out the win. After the results were announced, the establishment favorite in Perez pulled out the victory over the progressive Ellison, with a vote of 235 to 200.

Minutes later, Perez showed unity, announcing that Ellison would become the new deputy chair of the DNC. As seen on his Twitter account on February 25, Donald Trump decided to voice his opinion, and did it in a way that left many scratching their heads.

"Congratulations to Thomas Perez, who has just been named Chairman of the DNC," Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Saturday night. Not stopping there, the commander in chief appeared to mock the new DNC chair. "I could not be happier for him, or for the Republican Party!" Trump tweeted.

Reaction to Donald Trump's tweet came quick, with some calling out the former host of "The Apprentice" for his apparent trolling of the Democratic Party, while others hit back and accused him of being scared of liberal "unity." "Troll level: 3rd grade," CEO Tom Bonier tweeted out.

"I know our unity scares you. Unlike the @GOP, @TheDemocrats are uniting behind the party's leader. Get ready... 2018," advocate Joseph Amodeo wrote on Twitter.

In recent weeks, Trump's feud with the press has escalated, which has given the president another reason to bypass the the mainstream media and utilize his Twitter account. While Trump has clashed with the press, the partisan fight between Democrats and Republicans has continued in Washington, D.C. With Tom Perez leading the way for the DNC, it appears he's become a new target for the current president.
