Why Donald Trump uses Twitter

Responsible news media outlets should be unbiased in their reporting and just report the facts, good or bad. The news media’s opinion should never be voiced to influence the opinion of their audience.  Doing so destroys democracy and legitimacy which in turn has taken down countries and the people within them time and time again.

Donald Trump uses his Twitter account because it is a direct link to the public and his messages will be immediate and powerful, thus giving more transparency and legitimacy which is something other past and current presidents and politicians have promised, but never delivered on.

I have friends in other countries who I check with about certain reports I hear in US mainstream news about happenings abroad and the answer I receive is,”That’s not actually true.” or “That’s not the whole story.”

If you have ever wondered why Donald Trump does not trust the mainstream news media and prefers to use Twitter instead, watching the reactions of the reporters to the Trump win of the 2016 election in the following video should clearly prove why.
