Donald Trump will be holding a social media summit today at the White House. The event is already controversial as extremists such guerrilla journalist James O’Keefe, plagiarist Benny Johnson and professional Twitter troll, Carpe Donktum will be visiting the White House. Many of these personalities have been deplatformed by social media sites for a number of different reasons.
The President will be meeting with these figures directly to talk about the future impact of social media. This morning, Trump wrote a long Twitter thread claiming that professional media outlets will not last much longer.
“A big subject today at the White House Social Media Summit will be the tremendous dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by certain companies,” wrote the President. “We will not let them get away with it much longer.”
Trump continued, “The Fake News is not as important, or as powerful, as Social Media. They have lost tremendous credibility since that day in November, 2016, that I came down the escalator with the person who was to become your future First Lady. When I ultimately leave office in six years, or maybe 10 or 14 (just kidding), they will quickly go out of business for lack of credibility, or approval, from the public.”

The President ended his tweetstorm by claiming that eventually all news outlets would have no choice but to endorse him. “That’s why they will all be Endorsing me at some point, one way or the other,” Trump ranted. Could you imagine having Sleepy Joe Biden, or Alfred E. Neuman or a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas (1000/24th), as your President, rather than what you have now?”
