President Donald Trump is tired of hearing the conservative Koch network's criticism of his hard-line trade and immigration policies.
"The globalist Koch Brothers, who have become a total joke in real Republican circles, are against Strong Borders and Powerful Trade," the president said in a two-tweet tirade early Tuesday. "I have never sought their support because I don't need their money or bad ideas."
Trump's attack on the billionaire brothers – "two nice guys with bad ideas" – comes after a Koch-linked group unveiled a six-figure ad buy to fight the president's tariffs. The Kochs did not endorse Trump in 2016 and their network has criticized several of his administration's policies, including a $1.3 trillion spending bill the president signed earlier this year.
