Former President Donald Trump took the opportunity on Father’s Day this year to hit out at his critics, penning a scathing message insulting his political opponents.
“Happy Father’s Day to all, including the Radical Left, RINOs, and other Losers of the world. Hopefully, eventually, everyone will come together!” Trump said in a statement.
RINO is an acronym for “Republican-in-name-only,” a pejorative term often used by Trump and his allies to criticize Republicans like Sen. Mitt Romney and Rep. Liz Cheney.
This is not the first time that Trump has used Father’s Day to launch a salvo aimed at his opponents. Per a report by The Hill, the then-President blasted his opponents in an early-morning tweet sent on the way to a golf session with Sen. Lindsey Graham.
“Happy Father’s Day to all, including my worst and most vicious critics, of which there are fewer and fewer. This is a FANTASTIC time to be an American! KEEP AMERICA GREAT!” read Trump’s tweet, dated June 16, 2019.
The rest of the Trump family also did not miss the opportunity this Father’s Day to get some campaigning done.
In an early morning email sent this Sunday, Donald Trump Jr. sent a message titled “My father is asking about you” to appeal for donations.

“Friend, there’s absolutely nothing the Fake News and Left-Wing MOB will not do to protect Joe Biden’s failing record as President of the United States. They are DESTROYING everything my father accomplished, which is why it’s critical we stay on track to CRUSH our Mid-Month Goal this month,” read the email sent from Trump Jr. on June 20.
“We’re finalizing the list of Mid-Month donors soon and I know my father will be looking for your name on it,” Trump Jr. added in the email message, right below a list of links to contribute amounts ranging from $25 to $250.
