Trump and Twitter

OPINION - Trump Tweets

Jan 3, 2018

By Olivia Cottrell

President Trump’s preferred mode of communication with the world seems to be through Twitter.

This year, Americans have dealt with horrific tragedies touching nearly every part of the country. The slew of shootings and natural disasters have taken a great deal of lives and left thousands of families stripped of their effects. After each disaster, President Trump took to Twitter to extend his thoughts and well-wishes to citizens affected by these tragedies. But, I believe taking a closer look at the distribution of these tweets reveals a chilling bias and a discrepancy in his political morals.

• Hurricane Harvey: 28 tweets.

• Hurricane Irma: 14 tweets.

• Las Vegas shooting: 11 tweets.

• Northern and Southern California fires combined: 2 tweets.

Looking at this information impels me to believe there’s a correlation between the political inclination of the state the tragedy occurred in and the amount of attention those affected receive on Twitter. Is President Trump deliberately showing more support to the citizens of states that support his political party?

After experiencing the terror of the North Bay fires this October, and witnessing the same thing happen to Southern California currently, it’s hard not to speculate why the President is staying so quiet.
