“Look, I don’t like tweeting, I have other things I can be doing,”
Trump told Fox News in an interview set to air in full on Wednesday morning.
President-elect Donald Trump said in an interview released late Tuesday that he’s not too fond of the social media site, claiming he just uses it as a shield against the “unbelievably dishonest” media.
“But I get very dishonest media, very dishonest press. And it’s my only way that I can counteract. When people make misstatements about me, I’m able to say it and call it out.”
Trump, who has over 20 million Twitter followers, also promised that he would wean off his habitual tweeting if the press started treating him fairly.
“Now if the press were honest, which it’s not, I would absolutely not use Twitter,” the President-elect said without providing specifics on what an “honest” press would actually look like.
Since during the Election campaign in 2016, Trump has been reeling out his major comments and speeches via the social media. He has accumulated over 50 millions followership so far. His in sighting and controversial tweets trend like wild fire.
Though saying he doesn’t care much about Twitter, Trump wrapped up the Tuesday preview of his Fox interview by boasting about his social media following.
“I’m going to be close to 50 million people, including Facebook and Instagram and different things,” the President-elect said.
