California Governor Jerry Brown’s name has been bandied about of late as a potential Democratic 2020 presidential contender, and he has so far not refuted any of the rumors. But while most presidential prospects of either party were using their social media accounts on Tuesday to memorialize the victims of the terror attacks that took place 17 years ago, Brown was using his to … take a shot at President Trump.
Brown’s single tweet on 9/11/18:
This is insane – it borders on criminality. It perhaps is the most obvious and dangerous and irresponsible action by Mr. Trump. And that’s saying quite a lot, because he has a whole list of them. https://t.co/KiRaCnCizZ

“This is insane – it borders on criminality,” Brown tweeted. “It perhaps is the most obvious and dangerous and irresponsible action by Mr. Trump. And that’s saying quite a lot, because he has a whole list of them.”
The governor of California and a potential presidential contender used his only tweet of the day to criticize President Trump for an EPA decision to roll back methane rules.
Meanwhile, other Democratic presidential hopefuls were using their Twitter accounts to recognize the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks.
In the wake of darker moments in our history, our spirit has become mightier. The bonds that unite us have become thicker.
Seventeen years after the 9/11 attacks, may we continue to live that legacy in our words and our deeds, every day. In America, we can overcome anything.

Today, our country comes together to remember those who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. We also honor our servicemembers and first responders who put their own lives at risk to protect our country and keep Americans safe. We will never forget.

17 years ago, our world changed forever. On this day we honor those who sacrificed everything and we recall the spirit of unity that brought us together to face foreign threats. This year, let’s recapture that spirit. #September11th #NeverForget
