President-elect Donald Trump Takes his Concerns to Social Media

President- elect Donald Trump took his concerns on nationwide issues to social media by incautiously tweeting statements on Twitter.

Over the past few months, Trump has taken over the political world after rising to the frontrunner position for Republicans in the 2016 presidential election.

Texas Southern University student Charles Washington says that Donald Trump’s tweets are inconsiderate as well as an embarrassment to the United States as a whole.

“He just doesn’t think at all; he acts on impulse instead of thinking about the consequences. That’s something that needs to change if he is going to run the United States,” said Washington.

During the election, Trump promised to make changes to America by using his social media as a platform to help keep voters engaged.

Shortly after his victory, Donald Trump’s tweets became direct remarks towards ISIS, immigrants, the president of Taiwan, along with several others.

Graduating senior at TSU Martin Adjovu says that Trump is an attention seeker, although he acquires enough attentions, he merely enjoys the right to intimidate others.

“I mean it’s pretty clear that he likes the attention that his supporters give him- you don’t even necessarily have to be a supporter of him to notice that some of the things he say are said in an irresponsible manner,” said Adjovu.

In previous tweets back in 2012 stated that Trump had no interest in what he would say ‘Making America Great Again’; he spoke negatively about the environment while also saying there was no reason China should invest $90 billion in clean fuel sources.

According to related sources, the comments he made about the climate change were not the only times that Trump had spoken against an issue.

19- year-old Radio, Television, and Film student Alessandra Fullerton says that Trump treats his presidential position as a joke.

“With so much happening in our country, we do not need or want someone who sees being the president as an opportunity to treat his title as a television show,” said Fullerton.

Social media was not the first place that Donald Trump took his personal mishaps to- he even recited them during each debate that was held with Hillary Clinton.

In the earlier years of 1999, 2000, 2004, 2008, and even 2012, Donald Trump tried running for office but was not successful due to people of America not being able to take his demeanor in a formal manner.

TSU Journalism student Devonne Houston says that Trump does not care about the people of America; that he just sees them as new ways to make money.

“I believe that Donald Trump was selling himself to his voters during the election with use of his social media platform. He made several promises and threats to people all over the world without thought,” said Houston.

Instead of spending one-on-one time with his voters like many other candidates did as a way to earn votes, he hired camera operators to pan the crowd at his rallies just to show how large the gatherings were.

During Trump’s campaign it was reported that he spent $300,000 just on radio ads alone.
