President Donald Trump is using social media to push his agenda, and he’s doing it in a way that no other president has ever done before. On Monday morning, the president tweeted out a video titled “Trump vs. Clinton: The Truth,” which was created by Right Wing News, a pro-Trump media outlet that frequently posts content to the president’s Twitter account. The video features clips of Trump saying he’d be willing to accept the election results if he loses but not if he wins.”
“Donald Trump is tweeting out another anti-Hillary Clinton video titled ‘Trump vs. Clinton: The Truth’ as part of his Twitter takeover.”
The video, posted by Right Wing News on Saturday, is titled “Trump vs. Clinton: The Truth.” It opens with a clip of Trump saying he’ll be glad to see Clinton behind bars and goes on to show clips from her past political career, including one where she called half of Trump supporters racist or sexist.
The video then cuts back to an image of Trump’s face superimposed over a picture of Clinton in prison stripes (which is just about as terrifying as it sounds). The whole thing ends with an announcer saying that this election could determine whether we have freedom or tyranny for generations to come.

The president has often used social media as a way of pushing his agenda and garnering support for his policies. This is especially true since he took office in January 2017, when he launched a series of videos on Twitter showing himself signing executive orders and other actions relating to immigration reform or healthcare reform (which would later be signed into law).

Trump has made a series of tweets about the election:
- “I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election.” (June 16)
- “If I win I will totally accept it.” (August 8)
“The video finishes with Trump saying ‘we want to change,’ and instructing viewers on how to get involved in his campaign.”
- If you’re interested in getting involved in Trump’s campaign, there are several ways to do so. You can donate money or volunteer on his team.
- If you’d like to donate money but aren’t sure what amount is appropriate for your budget, there’s a handy tool on the Trump website that will give you an estimate of how much it would cost per month if he were elected president (he’s currently polling at 41 percent).
- Volunteers also make great contributions–and they’re not just useful when voting time rolls around: helping out with canvassing and phone banking will help spread the word about why we need change.
President Donald Trump is using social media to push his agenda.
Social media is a great way to get your message to a wide audience.
President Trump’s Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, has more than 24 million followers. The president tweets about topics like immigration and healthcare at all hours of the day, often turning the spotlight onto himself while also pushing his agenda. This can lead to controversy when he tweets about things like race or gender equality issues or when he uses offensive language in his posts–like this one where he makes fun of John McCain for being captured during Vietnam: “I like people who weren’t captured.”
President Trump has been using Twitter to speak directly to his followers since May 2015, and he used it again today with his latest video. This is not the first time that Trump has used social media as a tool for spreading his message or attacking opponents; he has also done this with other platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
