How much do you want to bet that the Democrats will be absolutely beside themselves and will be condemning the president for this action? Personally, I’d love it. I can arrange my big screen, so I can watch the debates and keep track of the president’s tweets.
The Democrats will feign indignant offense but they have done the same to him many times. The only thing that I regret is that the candidates won’t get to see the tweets live. But you and I may not either.
I would not be surprised if Twitter has a “malfunction and he will not be able to send them or we won’t be able to see them.
The Wall Street Journal, citing “people familiar with the planning,” said Trump intends to deviate from the wishes of his advisers and is “tentatively planning” on live-tweeting during the events both nights.
Reactions seem to be split. According to the report, Trump’s advisers would rather see the Democrat candidates tear each other apart without distractions from the president. However, it is likely that Trump – who built his presidential legacy on speaking directly to the American people – wants America to know that he is engaged and ready to defend his position and the MAGA legacy he started.
Political advisers have long wanted Mr. Trump to tap the brakes on attacking Democratic presidential rivals, concerned that the president’s reactions would elevate contenders and provide some shield from what otherwise could be a bruising primary battle. Mr. Trump’s broadsides against former Vice President Joe Biden, for example, have coincided with polls that increasingly show voters view Mr. Biden as the most likely to deny the president a second term.
