Trump Follows, Quickly Unfollows CNN on Twitter

President Donald Trump’s official Twitter account followed CNN on Monday morning — before quickly unfollowing the account.

A number of Twitter users noticed that the president followed the news outlet that he has used as a foil since his famously media-antagonistic election campaign:

Within the hour, however, Trump had unfollowed the news outlet — which has been the subject of his derision a number of times on the social platform. A quick search of the president’s account found nearly 100 tweets slamming the network.

Trump follows only 45 accounts on Twitter, including members of his family and a number of Fox News hosts and personalities, including Jesse Watters and Diamond & Silk.

The follow/unfollow — could it have been a flirtatious tease? — comes the morning after the airing of CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s interview with Stormy Daniels, the former porn star who is suing the president over an alleged affair.
