Trump Last November on His Tweeting: ‘I’m Going to Do Very Restrained’ as President

Given how President Trump‘s anti-media tweeting has been in the news this week, it’s worth revisiting what he said in an interview last November about his tweeting habits after he won the election.

Trump spoke to Lesley Stahl on 60 Minutes, and she asked him about whether he would continue tweeting as President of the United States.

Trump called Twitter a “great form of communication” and said it’s his “method of fighting back” against unfair press coverage.

Stahl asked him if he would continue as President, and Trump said, “I’m going to do very restrained, if I use it at all, I’m going to do very restrained.”

This morning Trump tweeted a fan video of himself literally fighting back against CNN.

You can watch the video here (the relevant part starts around the 18-minute mark), via CBS.
