This is definitely an exciting time to be alive! President-elect Trump has announced he will communicate with the American people directly through social media outlets Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Mainstream media is having a nervous breakdown, but Alternative-media just had the best news it could possibly hope for. We will survive!
Think about it, President Trump will be making public policy announcements directly on Facebook,Instagram and Twitter. The move, which is unprecedented for a president, is designed to limit the mainstream media’s role as an information filter by reaching the American people directly through social media.
Trump’s new Press Secretary, Sean Spicer said this: “The fact of the matter is that when he tweets, he gets results”. Incoming Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Sunday.
“You know, with all due respect, I think it freaks the mainstream media out that he has this following of over 45 plus million people that follow him on social media, that he can have a direct conversation. He doesn’t have to have it funneled through the media”
How lucky are we the people to have such an innovative and thought provoking President? He truly thinks out-of-the-box, and we will have the privilege of having a true creative genius to lead our Country. President-elect Trump will never be a puppet for anyone! I truly believe this.
We the people are approaching a time unlike no other…a new era of citizen-journalism similar to colonial America in which independent newspapers thrived because, at the time, there wasn’t an establishment media controlling the flow of information. It is as if we are being presented with an opportunity to open new doors, while slamming the old ones shut. We will no longer be forced to trust a fading mainstream media who has filtered all news, providing the public with a watered-down version of the truth with actual fake news woven in.
I am not saying that those in Alternative-media can throw all caution to the wind…absolutely not! However, we are being given an opportunity to thrive…if we take the responsibility seriously. We must realize the spotlight is turning our way, as our new President-elect chooses to communicate to America through social media. It will be our eyes, our ears, and our laptops that will record history, as we are being given the chance to get the news first before mainstream media.
Trump is at his best in the above video. He lets the press have it, and the men behind him are amazed and tickled-to-death to hear it. The smiles of we the people are awesome when we finally get a chance to hear someone speak the truth. President-elect Trump is a truthmonger, and we are so fortunate to be able to be alive at this time in history during the Trump era.
This week, incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer signaled that as president, Donald Trump will continue to utilize that direct-to-the-people outreach as he will no doubt be battling a barrage of anti-Trump media spin throughout his presidency:
“I think that his use of social media in particular … is gonna be something that’s never been seen before,” Spicer told Rhode Island news station WPRI in an interview published Monday. “He has this direct pipeline in the American people, where he can talk back and forth…I mean, he does communicate in a much bigger way than there’s ever been before, and I think that’s gonna be just a really exciting part of the job.”
And combating media bias isn’t the only use Trump will have for his social media army of devoted supporters, as indicated by Congressman Tom Cole:
“I don’t think people are used to having a president that can reach into their districts the way that I think Donald Trump can…I mean, he’s very popular with the Republican base. And a guy that can sit there and tweet out of the White House and generate several thousand calls to your office is somebody you ought to take pretty seriously, because I suspect he’s gonna be very serious about pushing his agenda.”
