Trump and Twitter: Best Friend’s Forever!
This is possibly the first time in our country’s history where the American people feel the most relatable to our fearless leader of the United States, President Trump, because of his almost psychotic use of social media, just like we do! He’s not above us, he IS us… except he can put the country at war, separate our country’s people (arguably the most it’s ever been in the history of the United States), has control of the some of the most powerful nuclear weapons on Earth, helped lower the standards of morality such as gender and race equality… the list grows longer everyday. But, let’s keep track and focus on one thing: Trump’s use of social media.
We see his tweet’s everyday, whether it be four o’clock in the afternoon or four o’clock in the morning. Trump has over 20 million Twitter followers. In my opinion, I would say half of his followers actually believe what he says and support him, and the other half would be people who want to be upset about something or just want a good laugh. Here are some of his actual tweets:
“ I loved beating these two terrible human beings. I would never recommend that anyone use her lawyer, he is a total loser!” May 23, 2013
“ Dopey @Lord_Sugar I’m worth $8 billion and you’re worth peanuts…without my show nobody would even know who you are.” Dec. 7, 2012
“ When Mitt Romney asked me for my endorsement last time around, he was so awkward and goofy that we all should have known he could not win!” Feb 24,2016
“@FrankLuntz, your so-called “focus groups” are a total joke. Don’t come to my office looking for business again. You are a clown!” 2:45 a.m, Aug. 7, 2015
It truly is uncanny how our President has affected the Presidential position moving forward, and I wonder how future Presidents will use social media to their advantage, because no President has done it better than Trump, for the better or worse.
