ears he has been president, so live public conversations are activities he avoids. The only time Trump likes to be on television in real time is when he is on what he perceives to be a politically supportive channel, such as Fox News. As with his social media posts, his appearances on partisan US television adds fuel to the flame of partisanship and creates even more polarization among the people of the country. Trump encourages people to dispute fact and call it fiction by only watching news that is aligned with their political beliefs. Indeed, such is Trump’s aversion to most television that many outlets have to follow the president’s social media to extract news and stories. “Twitter and its underlying logic will continue to supplant television and its underlying logic as the dominant epistemology of the moment” (Ott 66) for the president because it is something that places him in total control of an unmediated message to those that support him. This divisiveness is being creating by this partisanship politics that stems from social media and television and this hurts the nation because divisiveness creates conflict which escalates into situations that can damage the lives of innocent people. Comparing the president’s use of communication to former presidents showcases the startling differences between Trump and presidents of past. “In the past, if a President was drafting remarks to be delivered through traditional mediums and the remarks referred disparagingly to a particular individual, defamatory language undoubtedly would be stricken or wordsmithed” (McKechnie 3). This would obviously be done to maintain the image of the president and these messages would have been looked over by an adviser charged with helping the president communicate in a fair, non-aggressive and inclusive way. An example of a president like this was Barack Obama. Obama did not control his own social media, but instead had a campaign team operate the official President of the United States (POTUS) Twitter account. Obama signed off on the tweets accredited to the POTUS account, which were never uninterrupted trains of thought and in-the-moment partisan messages (McKechnie 8). This maintained the image of the president, while still showcasing his ability to communicate to the entirety of the population of the United States, instead of just his own supporters.>GET ANSWER
