In a new poll conducted by Morning Consult/POLITICO, 56 percent of 1,401 registered voters think Donald Trump should spend less time on Twitter.
16 percent said that he uses the social media outlet an appropriate amount, while just five percent said they want him to tweet more.
On Monday Trump stated it’s the press that drives him to take to Twitter so much: “If the press would cover me accurately & honorably, I would have far less reason to ‘tweet.’ Sadly, I don’t know if that will ever happen!”
Last week, at an event at the Harvard Institute of Politics, CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s senior, if his use of Twitter was “presidential behavior.”
“Well, he’s the president-elect, so that’s presidential behavior,” Conway responded. “I will tell you that president-elect looks at his social media accounts, a combined 25 million — or probably more at this point — users on Twitter, on Facebook as a very good platform for which to convey his messages,” she explained. “He’s a unique person who’s been following his instincts and his judgment from the beginning.”
What do you think, San Angelo? Should Trump spend more or less time in the “Twitterverse?”
