President Donald Trump mocked Congressional Democrats Tuesday morning over an equipment failure at their Monday night rally, writing on Twitter that the event was “a mess.”
“Nancy Pelosi and Fake Tears Chuck Schumer held a rally at the steps of The Supreme Court and mic did not work (a mess)-just like Dem party!” Trump wrote Tuesday morning.
While the Monday night rally did suffer from technical difficulties, it drew more than a thousand protesters to the Supreme Court, where crowds swelled beyond caution tape intended to keep them out of the street. Crowds chanted “Paul Ryan sucks” and “no Bannon, no wall,” a reference to White House senior adviser Steve Bannon.
The crowd also sang “This Land is Your Land” during the technical difficulties that Trump joked about.
While the event took on an overall anti-Trump tone, it was convened specifically to oppose the president’s recent executive order temporarily banning individuals from seven majority-Muslim nations from entering the U.S. and instituting an indefinite ban on Syrian refugees entering the country. Schumer said the order will “make us unsafe” and pledged that “We will fight it with everything we have and we will win this fight.”
