Transcript for Trump attacks Justice Department, more in Twitter outburst
That tweet on North Korea just one of 16 the president sent yesterday and new year's burst from the white house. Cecilia Vega is there and, Cecilia, they included in that burst fresh attacks on Hillary Clinton and the president's own justice department. Reporter: Not to mention a major conspiracy theory attacking the justice department as a deep state working to undermine his presidency. On Hillary Clinton he is going after huma abedin suggesting she should be punished for her handling of certain government e-mails. Take a look at that tweet. He said, quote, jail deep state justice department must finally act, also on Comey and others. Now, right here in the briefing room I asked Sarah Sanders whether he believes the deep state is a real thing and whether he believes the entire 100,000 people in the justice department are part of it. She said to me, quote, obviously he doesn't believe the entire justice department is part of it. But he is keeping up the pressure right there. He has been unhappy with his attorney, Jeff sessions, congress is back today as well. One of the things they pushed off they passed that tax bill was the spending bill for the whole next year S creates the possibility again of a government shutdown in January. Reporter: Yeah, we're just days away from it on the 19th. There will be a big meeting on capitol hill and top Republican, top Democrats from Nancy Pelosi, chuck Schumer, representatives of the president will be in that room and have 16 days to keep this government open. The -- da deal is likely to be part of that. Democrats are certainly going to try to tie a fix for these undocumented immigrants brought to this country illegally as children to that now. Senior officials tell me the president wants funding for a border wall as part of that. He needs Democrats to get this fix done but, George, as you've seen he's bashing them and back to bashing them on Twitter again so 2018 sounding a lot like 2017. Democrats not likely to go along with the wall, thanks very much.
