In a meeting airing on Sunday on ‘Fox Business Network’, Trump said with his use of Twitter, he could sidestep “out of line media scope” and speak directly.
“Tweeting is like a typewriter — when I put it out, you put it instantly on your show,” he stated, according to a transcript released by the network.“I doubt I would be here if weren’t for social media, to be honest with you.”
He called his social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram “a tremendous platform”.
“When someone, says something in regards to me, I am ready to go bing, bing, bing and I deal with it. The other way, I could never have the word out,” he said.
Trump has been asked to curtail his social media use, and he once recognized that even friends have moved toward him to back off on his use of social media platforms.
The American President is known to use Twitter to attack political rivals and even media platforms he considers as biased.
Trump has likewise been blamed for retweeting messages posted by racial oppressors.
He joined Twitter in 2009 and has from that point forward tweeted 36,200 times. He has 40.9 million followers
