Trump on Social Media: You Communicate Directly with Our Citizens Without Having to Go Through the Fake News Filter

‘I think Hillary had 28 people and I had Dan’

EXCERPT:

TRUMP: "So, this is a historic day. Never before have so many online journalists and influencers — and that’s exactly what you are, you are journalists and you are influencers — come together in this building too discuss the future of social media. Each of you is fulfilling a vital role in our nation. You are challenging the media gatekeepers and the corporate censors to bring the facts straight to the American people and that’s what you’re doing. You’re going right to the people. Possibly we wouldn’t be here right now. I asked somebody, what do you think I'd do without social media? Would I be here? Because I said I think so, but they weren’t so sure. I have to say that. You know that. I'm not sure. I believe that, but I have to say it. But you communicate directly with our citizens without having to go through the fake news filter. It’s very simple. Together you reach more people than any television broadcast network by far.”
