President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a defiant proclamation in which he said he would never stop using Twitter to broadcast his message no matter how many headaches it causes for other White House staff members.
The FAKE MSM is working so hard trying to get me not to use Social Media, Trump wrote. They hate that I can get the 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
Of course, it isn t just the media that has criticized Trump s use of Twitter, as George Conway, the husband of top White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, slammed the president this week for undermining his own travel ban order through a series of inflammatory tweets.
In fact, Kellyanne Conway herself asked reporters this week to stop spending so much time covering the things that Trump sends out on Twitter.
Trump s critics, however, replied to Trump and told them they were positively giddy about his use of social media, as his tweets very often undercut his own agenda.
A sample of the top reactions follow below.
By all means, keep talking. You re gonna talk yourself into prison, jughead. https://t.co/Ptlpvuh5SQ
Are you kidding, Tangerine Twatwaffle? The press and your opponents love watching you self-destruct on Twitter. #Popcorn #NeverTrump https://t.co/E59PO6dcIc
Actually it s your legal team. And your comms staff. And your voters. And your family. https://t.co/vnOVZj6Ag4
Mate, no one wants you to stop, this is more entertaining than a pug in a squirrel suit
Your eventual impeachment will bring joy to millions of Americans
They want to steal the precious from you. Sneaky little journalists. Wicked, tricksy, false!
Actually, we love that you tweet. Nothing reveals your utter incompetence and inability to keep America safe than your own unfiltered words.
Every tweet you send implicates you further and causes your approval to keep slipping. We love your tweeting, orange man.
