Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif. said House Democrats now stand between President Trump and “his disrespect for the rule of law.”
Lieu made his comments in tweets posted on Wednesday, following Tuesday’s election giving Democrats control of the House.
In one tweet, Lieu wrote: “House Dems are now what stand between @realDonaldTrump and his disrespect for the rule of law and march toward authoritarianism. We got this. Why? Because the overwhelming majority of the American people stand with us. #ElectionResults2018”
Lieu, an outspoken critic of Trump, took a somewhat softer, yet still critical approach, in another tweet.
“Dear @realDonaldTrump: House Democrats will work with you to move America forward on issues like health care and infrastructure,” he wrote. “But if you want to pass harmful legislation, we will stop you. We will also conduct actual oversight. It's morning in America.”
