Trump: There’s ‘no method’ to my tweeting


President Donald Trump said Monday that there is “no method” to the way in which he uses Twitter, his preferred social media platform with which he often seeks to end-around the media by communicating directly to his millions of followers.

“No method, really. It’s just — it’s not venting either,” Trump said when asked about his Twitter habits during an interview on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” that aired Tuesday and was taped a day earlier.

“It does allow me to go around dishonest media. I don’t have to go around you folks. I don’t have to go around a lot of the media. But I do have to go around some media,” Trump continued, offering a compliment to the Fox News program that has delivered almost unfailingly positive coverage of his administration. “I have so many millions of people, it allows me to give a message without necessarily having to go through people where I’m giving them a message and they’re putting it down differently from what I mean.”

While Trump has successfully parlayed his social media habits into greater visibility and reporter-free communication with his supporters, they have also kicked off firestorms with what sometimes appear to be knee-jerk reactions. Seeking to avoid the latter, prominent Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others, have publicly suggested that Trump tone down his tweeting.
