President Trump fired back at Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who was recorded on an open microphone saying the GOP is "toast" if it follows Trump and Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that the Arizona senator "is unelectable."

"He’ll be a NO on tax cuts because his political career anyway is 'toast,'" Trump wrote.

President Trump renewed his attack on Hillary Clinton on Saturday with a tweet slamming his former campaign rival as "the worst (and biggest) loser of all time."

More than a year after Clinton's loss to Trump in the presidential election, he wrote, "She just can't stop," before advising her to "get on with your life and give it another try in three years!"

Trump's tweet came the day after Mother Jones published an interview with Clinton in which she said that "there are lots of questions" about the legitimacy of last year's election. She cited both Russian interference and voter suppression as "major contributors" to the outcome and called for an independent commission "to get to the bottom of what happened."

In a surprise move, the Trump administration will suspend its recent decision to allow hunters to bring elephant trophies back to the United States from parts of southern Africa, President Trump tweeted Friday night.

The move comes as celebrities, politicians and even some Trump supporters had intensely criticized the administration’s decision earlier this week to re-allow the importation of elephant parts back into the U.S. from Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The White House was overrun with school spirit Friday as President Trump welcomed college sports champions and declared them "great athletes." Too many of them to fit in one room, the teams took up positions across the mansion for separate photo ops with the president.
 

In all, 18 NCAA teams attended the event at the White House; South Carolina's women's basketball team declined the invitation.

The Texas A&M women's equestrian team, Pennsylvania State University's women's rugby team, the University of Washington's women's rowing team and others gathered around the White House grounds to be recognized for their championships.

The Trump administration announced a major gang sweep Thursday, with the arrests of more than 200 members of the violent street gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13.

President Trump on Friday tweeted a link to an article about the action. His message contained a video of a news conference announcing the arrests, interspersed with clips of a speech he gave in July in Brentwood, N.Y., in which he called for police and immigration officials to be “rough” with suspected gang members in order to rid the country of “animals” he said are terrorizing communities.

Officials from the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department said "Operation Raging Bull" was conducted across the United States from Oct. 8 to Nov. 11, and concluded with the arrest of 214 members of MS-13.

President Trump on Thursday criticized Sen. Al Franken after a Los Angeles radio show anchor said that the Minnesota Democrat had forcibly kissed her and later groped her on a 2006 USO tour.

"The Al Frankenstien picture is really bad, speaks a thousand words," Trump wrote Thursday night in one of two tweets on the topic. He misspelled "Frankenstein."

Leeann Tweeden, a news anchor on KABC's "McIntyre in the Morning," said in a post on the station's website Thursday and in interviews throughout the day that Franken had written a skit for the USO tour in which they kissed, and that he aggressively kissed her after demanding that they rehearse the scene.

President Trump is pressing for the United Nations Security Council to extend the mandate of experts trying to determine who was responsible for chemical attacks in Syria.

The measure could face a veto from Russia, which is pushing a rival resolution opposed by the United States and other Security Council members.

If neither resolution is adopted, the Joint Investigative Mechanism would cease operations when its current mandate expires at midnight Thursday.
