“Federal Judge in Maryland has just ruled that “President Trump has the right to end DACA.” President Obama had 8 years to fix this problem, and didn’t. I am waiting for the Dems, they are running for the hills!”

今日はrun for the hillsに注目 run for the hills=急いで逃げる。文字通り「小高い所へ逃げる」の他、比喩的な使い方もします。
The Free Dictionaryから例文を拝借。

“From Bush 1 to present, our Country has lost more than 55,000 factories, 6,000,000 manufacturing jobs and accumulated Trade Deficits of more than 12 Trillion Dollars. Last year we had a Trade Deficit of almost 800 Billion Dollars. Bad Policies & Leadership. Must WIN again! #MAGA”

今日はdeficitに注目 deficit=赤字、債務超過。貿易赤字はtrade deficit、財政赤字はbudget deficitです。ちなみに黒字はsurplus。「赤字を出す」という時の動詞にはrunを使うことができます。

The country ran a trade deficit of over 20 billion dollars last year.
