President Trump talked up the GOP effort to overhaul the tax code on Sunday, tweeting that the legislation “is getting better and better.”

President Trump again hit out at allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election as a "phony Democrat excuse for losing."

In a tweet sent Sunday afternoon, Trump also claimed that he has "possibly done more than any 10 month President" despite his political rivals’ focus on Russia’s role in the election.

Trump’s suggestion that allegations of Russian meddling are merely a distraction is contrary to the assessment of U.S. intelligence agencies, which have concluded that Russia sought to influence the election to help Trump win.

President Trump on Sunday reiterated support for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, despite numerous allegations against him of sexual misconduct and harassment.

“We can’t let Schumer-Pelosi win this race,” Trump tweeted Sunday morning from his Mar-a-Lago golf resort, where he has been spending the Thanksgiving holiday. He was referencing Sen. Charles Schumer of New York and San Francisco Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who head the Democratic contingents in their respective chambers of Congress.

Numerous women have come forward to accuse Moore, an ultra-conservative Republican, of various degrees of sexual harassment, including assault, when he was in his 30s more than 30 years ago. One of the accusers was 14 years old at the time.

President Trump signaled his support for Small Business Saturday in a tweet sent Saturday morning.

Small Business Saturday was invented by American Express in 2010 to help local businesses cash in on the holiday shopping surge.

The effort is now co-sponsored by the U.S. Small Business Administration, which is lead by former World Wrestling Entertainment executive Linda McMahon.

Time magazine is disputing President Trump's account of how he rejected the magazine's request for an interview and photo sessions ahead of its "Person of the Year" issue.

In a Friday evening tweet, Trump said the magazine informed him he was "probably" going to be granted the title for the second year in a row. 

Later that evening, Time tweeted that Trump "is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year." The magazine said it doesn't comment on its choice until publication.

President Trump denounced the deadly mosque attack in Egypt and reached out to its president, asserting the world must crush terrorists by military means — and insisting the United States needs a southern border wall and the travel ban tied up in courts.

"Need the WALL, need the BAN!" Trump tweeted Friday before calling Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi. "God bless the people of Egypt."

Trump spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan before his attention turned to the attack in Egypt, where at least 235 people were killed when Islamic militants attacked a crowded mosque during prayers in the Sinai Peninsula, setting off explosives and spraying worshippers with gunfire.

“I have to say just directly to the folks in Afghanistan: Everybody’s talking about the progress you’ve made in the last few months since I opened it up,” Trump said, according to pool reports.
