On Sunday, millions of people around the world celebrated Easter, including the President of the United States. On Twitter, President Trump’s Easter message praised the U.S. economy and the strength of the country. Shortly thereafter, the president doubled down on his criticism of the Mueller report and its associated investigation.
“Happy Easter!” Trump tweeted early Sunday morning. “I have never been happier or more content because your Country is doing so well, with an Economy that is the talk of the World and may be stronger than it has ever been before. Have a great day!”
The president also expressed condolences for the more than 200 people who died in Sri Lanka, as part of what authorities have called a coordinated bombing attack on three separate churches during Easter services, according to The New York Times. “The United States offers heartfelt condolences to the great people of Sri Lanka,” Trump tweeted. “We stand ready to help!”
But the president’s tweeting changed course as the morning wore on. Instead of focusing on Easter, itself, it appeared that Trump’s attention reverted to the Mueller report and the Special Counsel’s investigation into whether the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the presidential election, as well as questions of obstruction of justice (the report found no evidence to support criminal wrongdoing)
