It was a holiday weekend, but President Donald Trump and rival Bernie Sanders didn’t exactly exchange greeting cards.

Instead, the political enemies of the often via Twitter over the nation are signed up to the new tax legislation, the Trump into law on Friday.

“Today, it was a great honour for me to be among the biggest tax draw cuts and reforms in the history of our country,” the President tweeted shortly after the signing of the $1.5 trillion bill.

On Saturday, Trump announced the plan as the culmination of a successful first year in the Oval Office.

“The tax cuts/ Reform Bill, including the Massive Alaska Drilling and the abolition of the highly unpopular Individual mandate, brought together all, what an incredible year we had,” he tweeted.

Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, be the weekend, made a tweet, by a question, on Thursday.

“It’s not a lot about Republican priorities tell us,” asked Sanders, “if the tax breaks for companies that are permanent, while the tax cuts for the work will expire at the end of families, after a period of 8 years?”

Not much to say about the Republican priorities, if the tax breaks for companies that are permanent, while tax benefits for working families that expire at the end of 8 years?

Then on Saturday, Sanders poked fun at reports that Trump had told friends during Mar-a-Lago dinner in Florida on Friday evening that “you all just got a lot richer.”

“At least trump the truth, finally, wrote about his tax debt,” Sanders.

On the same day, however, the President reminded his Twitter followers:

“The stock market is setting records and unemployment is at a 17-year low. So many things achieved by the trump-administration, perhaps more than any other President in the first year.”

Then on Sunday, Sanders presents alternatives for what could have been done in the US with the 1.5 trillion U.S. Dollar value of the tax legislation.

“What we could do with 1.5 trillion US dollars:

-Make study free of fees

-Universal preschool

-Repair our crumbling infrastructure

Fund-a-CHIP for 107 years

But Trump seemed to be unfazed by the talk of problems at the polls for the GOP. As he tweeted on Saturday:

Remember, the Republicans are 5-0 in the conference race this year. In the Senate, “I said,” Roy would lose M, in Alabama, and supports Big-Luther-foreign – and Roy lost. Virginia a candidate was not a “Trumper,” and he has lost. A good Republican candidate will win!
