Many people use social media to express how they feel, stay up to date, and to simply snoop out the next scope. That could be a bad thing because not everything should be taken to or announced to the public. President Trump, however, finds Twitter to be his way of life. Trump has 46.8 million followers, and has posted 36,800 tweets since joining Twitter in March of 2009. Now how many of those tweets are actually useful to Americans?

On November 29, 2017, Trump targeted the British Prime Minister Theresa May with a response to the reprimand from her spokesman about how the Trump administration was wrong for letting him post three anti-Muslim videos.

 Trump tweeted out “Don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”

This type of act is completely and utterly uncalled for. The situation could have been handled more maturely then clapping back with less than a thought. Simply, he could have arranged for a phone call or meeting to talk about differences of opinions each other had rather than acting like an uncivilized adult.

Another incident with President Trump’s tweeting causing people to raise an eyebrow was January 5, 2018.

 Trump tweeted, “Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped like a dog by almost everyone. Too bad!”

Since when is it okay to bash someone’s name and call them sloppy and say they were dumped like a dog. Name calling is belittling to the presidency. After all he promised all his fellow Americans that he would display himself with a presidential demeanor but it doesn’t seem like he is too keen to hold up his end of the bargain.

Lastly on January 2, 2018 Trump tweeted “Democrats are doing nothing for DACA – just interested in politics. DACA activists and Hispanics will go hard against Dems, will start ‘falling in love’ with Republicans and their President! We are about RESULTS.”

This tweet caused a series of problems to flood his twitter. Many of the citizens found Trump was outright crazy for even posting this being that he already cancelled it and was still trying to flip it and put the blame on the Democrats. A lot of Americans felt he had simply ripped children away from their families and didn’t care one bit. Others just felt sad and disappointed.

If a person is going to make a commitment to the entire country to serve and protect, they need to uphold the right morality to go with that title. Self control should play a huge role in making a dedication to be a leader. As a person, you should want your country to follow and lead by example for other countries. Thinking and reviewing something to be sent out should also be taken into consideration to make sure the environment is safe for everyone.
