‘A Total Joke’: Trump Takes on Koch Brothers, Gun Control in Morning Tweets

President Donald Trump on Tuesday took aim at a slew of unusual targets, including the Koch brothers and 3-D printed guns, as he stressed that he’s “a puppet for no one” while throwing shade on regular Republican stalwarts.

In a duo of tweets on Tuesday morning, Trump hit back at GOP donors Charles and David Koch as their billion-dollar donor network sought to distance itself from the Trump White House by criticizing the current administration’s trade and immigration policies, as well as “divisive” rhetoric in Washington, according to The Washington Post.

Trump slammed the “globalist” Koch network, calling them “a total joke” and “highly overrated” in response to their recent campaign against protectionist trade policies, and he asserted that they “love” his progress on tax cuts and Supreme Court nominations.

Trump then turned his attention to reports that blueprints for 3-D printed guns can be legally downloaded by the public, saying the idea “doesn’t seem to make much sense!”

The do-it-yourself firearms — dubbed “Ghost Guns” since they don’t have serial numbers, rendering them untraceable — have been met with steep opposition from lawmakers and gun control groups alike, and the president’s suggestion that he’s looking into the issue with the NRA signals that the administration may be on board with plans to restrict the publication of the blueprints, which officially become public on Wednesday.

Trump concluded his morning tweetstorm with comments on some of his favorite topics, including immigration, the Russia investigation, and “Fake News,” proclaiming that “In 7 years, when I am no longer in office, their ratings will dry up and they will be gone!”
