President Trump accused the Democrats of selfishly standing in the way of America’s best interests in a new tweet — the morning after passing his 100-day milestone in office.

“The Democrats, without a leader, have become the party of obstruction.They are only interested in themselves and not in what’s best for U.S.,” Trump wrote. 

The Trump administration has repeatedly blamed Democrats for standing in the way of his nominees, amidst criticism that it is lagging behind in the first stretch.

“We’re behind, but because of historical unbelievable obstruction from U.S. senators that are acting inappropriately,” White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said on last week’s “Meet The Press.”

The tweet also echoes criticism of the Democratic leadership — or lack thereof — made by Trump at a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on his hundredth day.

“Unfortunately, Democrats in Congress have no leadership, they are rudderless,” he said before attacking minority leader Sen. Chuck Schumer.

“His policies are hurting innocent Americans and making it easier for drug dealers to enter our country. Schumer is weak on crime and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. He is a poor leader, and he is leading the Democrats to doom,” Trump said.

Trump crowed about the event in another tweet on Sunday morning.

“Big excitement last night in the Great State of Pennsylvania! Fantastic crowd and people. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” he wrote 

He then recommitted to replacing Obma’s historic Affordable Care Act.

“Healthcare plan is on its way,” he wrote. “Will have much lower premiums & deductibles while at the same time taking care of pre-existing conditions!”
