Trump Tweets a Gentle Chiding about GOP Assault on Ethics Oversight

Diane Ravitch's blog

@realDonaldTrump tweeted this morning:

With all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog, as unfair as it…

……..may be, their number one act and priority. Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance! #DTS

Parse that. Did he say, “What terrible judgment! Undo the damage!”

No.

Why a gentle chiding but no reprimand? Is an ethics investigation really “unfair,” as Trump says? Is he concerned about the action or the optics?

What do do you take as the meaning of these two tweets from the Tweeter-in-Chief?
