US President-elect Donald Trump just can’t quit Twitter.
More than three weeks after his surprise victory over Hillary Clinton, Trump continues to make headlines with his 140 character messages.
In recent days alone he has tweeted about unproven election fraud and stated that flag burners should be jailed or lose their citizenship.
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper wondered aloud on Tuesday (29 November) how Trump remains as prolific a tweeter as he was when he was still a presidential hopeful.
‘We are in uncharted waters with a president-elect who is continuing to tweet as he did – maybe a little bit less – during the campaign.
‘When I first heard that he was tweeting about something that was on this broadcast – a number of tweets – factually incorrect tweets – I kept thinking, “Doesn’t he have a briefing book on ISIS to be reading?”
‘There’s a huge amount of information for him to be absorbing now and thinking about. … What is he doing?’
The anchor suggested there’s a calculated motive behind some of Trump’s more controversial tweets.
‘It steers conversation and in fact takes conversation away from some of his last tweets which were completely factually (incorrect) – there’s no evidence of what he tweeted abut millions of illegal voters voting for Hillary Clinton.’
