If someone were to ask the average American 10 years ago, “would you see political candidates communicate the way they do today?”, most people would say no…

6 months into his presidency Donald Trump had already tweeted over 30,000 times. Since President Clinton’s first attempt in 1994, every US administration has tried to stop North Korea’s nuclear missile program. Donald J Trump is the first to attempt to do it via the medium of tweets. Ignoring diplomatic norms, Trump informs the world via Twitter of behind the scenes talks. In June 2018, the first ever meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader takes place in Singapore.

Donald Trump has now sent over 50,000 tweets. They’ve taken him from reality TV star, to the Oval Office, and 140 characters at a time, changed the presidency forever!
