TRUMP’S ‘NATIONAL DISCUSSION’
When he took office, President Trump brought a valuable skill set with him, honed during his productive time in the private sector, and in the realm of both big business and show business.
“Much of what the president says on Twitter and during political rallies can be interpreted as deliberate and designed to control the conversation. The problem with Republicans has always been they have no fight in them and make no attempt to control what people are discussing in the media — and by media, I do not just mean the mainstream media — I mean all media including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Republicans have always been reactive, not proactive,” writes American Thinker columnist William L. Gensert.
“President Trump has sure changed that, hasn’t he? For the first time in my memory it is a Republican dictating the national discussion. He says something on Twitter or at a rally, then he steps back and watches as the mainstream media, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, strangers on line at Whole Foods (“Thank you, come again”) lose their collective minds in horror about the insensitivity,” Mr. Gensert continues.
