President Donald Trump came out today and stated that he will not get off of social media. Despite what he feels is only call from the media and his enemies, Trump confirmed that he has not intention of stopping from tweeting his thoughts and ideas on his administration’s policies. Trump said: “Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people). Only way for me to get the truth out!”

Right now, the White House is in a bit of a makeover as retired Gen. John Kelly took over as Trump’s new chief of staff. After that decision, Kelly quickly made the quick firing of newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

The president just last week ordered a significant change in the military’s policy toward transgender people in three tweets – and used the social media platform to denounce his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, speaking on NBC’s “Today Show,” said that he was encouraged by Kelly’s new role, but was looking for “discipline” from Trump in order to move forward with health care and tax reform issues. “He has an obligation to be president for all of us and stop the chaos. Most of the chaos is generated by him and no one else,” Graham said.
