Should President Trump delete his Twitter account? | The Tylt
Trump's latest Twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” has many asking if it's time for the president to put down the phone. No other politician has weaponized Twitter like Trump—he himself has said: "I think that maybe I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Twitter." Some argue his tweets could actually threaten national security. But his supporters say Twitter lets him circumvent a dishonest media to engage directly with the American public. What do you think?📱
Should President Trump delete his Twitter account?
Here's a quick rundown of the President's latest Twitter freakout. Even staunch Republicans are aghast at this one.
Some say Trump is using his platform for targeted harassment and bullying, and it's time for his campaign of Twitter terror to end.
But doesn't the president have the right to free speech as well? Many argue Twitter actually handed Trump the presidency.
Twitter has allowed Trump to dominate the political conversation and news cycle, from the primaries until now. Why would he give something up that has been such an effective tool for him?
The Fake News Media works hard at disparaging & demeaning my use of social media because they don't want America to hear the real story!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2017
But with all of his recent legal trouble, Trump's lawyers are apparently begging him to stop—anything he tweets can and will be used against him.
Others applaud the president's tweets. They see all of these incidences as necessary tactics in a war with the media.
