Trump Credits Social Media for His Election

President Donald Trump is not sure that he would be President of the United States for nine months without the power of social media, Politico reports.

“I doubt I would be here if it weren’t for social media, to be honest with you,” the president told Fox Business Network. The president assessed that tweeting is like a typewriter. “Tweeting is like a typewriter — when I put it out, you put it immediately on your show. I mean, the other day, I put something out, two seconds later I am watching your show, it’s up,” Trump said.

He added that his social media accounts provide a tremendous platform and estimated that he has a combined 125 million followers across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

“So when somebody says something about me, I am able to go bing, bing, bing, and I take care of it. The other way, I would never get the word out,” he stressed.

He said that he was using social media “to keep people interested” and “avoid the fake media.”

“The ones don’t want me to [tweet] are the enemies, the people who really don’t like what happened with me and winning the election and all of the things. Those are the ones who say he should not tweet,” Trump said. But he confessed that he’s not sure if he would be president without the help of social media.

“But without social media, I’m not sure that I’d be here today, so I don’t — I don’t think I want to take any chances. I can express my views when somebody expresses maybe a false view that they said I gave. It is a little unconventional,, but it works. It just seems to work,” Trump said.
