January 19, 2018
HE: The subject of Donald Trump’s twitter behavior has been up for debate because of his perceived aggressive tweets. Trump’s twitter is not only a valuable resource to follow the president’s actions but also a great way for him to connect with his supporters and hopefully connect with new ones.
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times’. Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!” tweeted Trump.
Sub-tweeting a tyrannical dictator? What a savage. Sub-tweeting, meaning, Indirectly tweeting something about someone without mentioning their name. Even though their name is not mentioned, it is clear who the person tweeting is referring to. Some people believe that this tweet is putting American citizens in danger; however, that is far from the case. Why would our own president put his own people in danger? It does not make any sense. Although shortly after he sent this out, there were some repercussions; other than every liberal news source basically blowing up, something else was doing some blowing up. Headlines were shown such as “North Korea missile reportedly blows up on launch.”
Truly this is a man with great wit and humor. His twitter is a vital importance to the American people. He continues to grace the world with his knowledge and information continuing to keep a great relationship with his followers.
SHE: The issues with Donald Trump’s twitter have been discussed since he announced his campaign in June of 2015. People have debated whether the controversial statements he has tweeted should worry us, or if we should brush them off.
“Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me ‘old’ when I would NEVER call him ‘short and fat?’ Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend- and maybe someday that will happen!” tweeted Trump.
The President of the United States decided it was a smart idea to type this out and post it for the whole world to see. He called Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, a man known for enacting nuclear threats, short and fat. Trump responds like a teenage girl who is fighting with someone who talked behind her back. This was not the only time he tweeted about Kim Jong-un either. He continues to ignore the line between professional and personal behavior.
“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the ‘Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.’ Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a nuclear button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my button works!” tweeted Trump.
It seems like 2018 will be the year of the second cold war, where two countries continue to make threats. He is making claims that are provoking Kim Jong-un to push the “nuclear button” that is apparently on his desk at all times. Trump tweets multiple times a day; how long before he tweets something so insane, North Korea actually drops the nuclear bombs, and starts a war.
