Trump trolled by Pelosi after breaking budget promises he made on Twitter
There is always a tweet.
Pelosi retweeted the 2015 message where Trump claimed he was the “only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid” in response to his proposed cuts to both programs as part of his 2019 fiscal year budget.
“There really is a tweet for everything,” Pelosi wrote. “Note: #TrumpBudget cuts health care funding, including Medicaid.”
I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.

The proposed $4.4 trillion budget, released on Monday, plans to cut $250 billion in Medicaid funding over the next 10 years. The budget instead calls for spending increases in the military and for Trump’s controversial wall on the southern border of the country.
The budget would also increase the federal deficit by $7 trillion. Overall, the budget would slash $1.8 trillion in funding to programs like Medicaid, Medicare, and food stamps, according to the New York Times.
There are numerous examples of Trump’s past tweets coming back to haunt him while in office, directly contradicting things he’s now saying or doing. There’s even an entire subreddit dedicated to chronicling these instances.
Some of the more egregious examples include: Trump criticizing President Barack Obama for having several chiefs of staffs, calling the Electoral College a “disaster” for democracy, and criticizing the Obamas for taking vacations during their time in office despite the fact Trump routinely spends time at properties he owns.
