Mainstream media trying to get me to stop using social media

Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump said the mainstream media doesn’t want him to get his “honest and unfiltered message out.”

"Sorry folks, but if I would have relied on the Fake News of CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, washpost or nytimes, I would have had ZERO chance winning WH", he wrote.

Trump, however, didn't acknowledge that much of the drama now surrounding the White House - outside the forthcoming testimony by James Comey, and the Russian Federation probe - was a product of messy messaging.

"Over the weekend and into Monday he indulged in another cycle of Twitter outbursts and pointless personal feuding that may damage his agenda and the powers of the Presidency", the editorial states. "It gives him the ability to speak directly to the people without the bias of the media filtering those types of communications", Sanders said.

In a clear reference to Trump's tweets Sunday and Monday criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Clinton said: "It's a time for steady, determined leadership - like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London". "Don't get in the way of an investigation that could actually clear you".

He says, "it's time to rebuild our country" and "to put America first".

Because her statement got so much attention, along with her husband's, Kellyanne Conway then returned to Twitter to clean up her Today show remarks. "Every time you say Twitter, imagine if you said terrorist", she said.

"There's just no gain in doing it", he added.

Trump may have been referring to news reports that White House aides discussed plans to have someone check and vet presidential tweets before they orbit into cyberspace, especially ones that deal with legal issues. I don't think you did anything wrong.

Trump, he argued, was voted in to shake up the culture in Washington, D.C.

Trump surrogates have defended Trump's Twitter use, saying it allows him to maintain a close connection with the American people. He said it would be imposed on "certain unsafe countries" and suggested that anything short of a ban "won't help us protect our people!"

Seventeen minutes later, Trump - who met with congressional Republicans Tuesday to brief them on last month's overseas trip - tweeted again.

The US president, however, is concerned the media wants him to stop tweeting.
