U.S. President Donald Trump recently defended his use of social media and refers to it as “modern day presidential”.
He stated this in a series of tweets, saying that “Fake and Fraudulent news media is working hard to convince Republicans and others (that he) should not use social media”.
He also took a swipe at CNN saying that he is thinking of changing the name to “#FraudNewsCNN”.
He wrote on Twitter:
The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media – but remember, I won the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat
#FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!
I am thinking about changing the name
#FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!
My use of social media is not Presidential – it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!
Trump later tweeted quite a controversial video that portrayed him tackling and defeating CNN.
