From his spelling skills to his ‘real’ hair: Trump goes on a riff at social media summit

0


President Donald Trump stood before political allies and online personalities at the White House on Thursday to talk about social media bias, but he also wanted people to know: Some 2020 Democratic candidates might be supporting communism, a certain celebrity tanked “The Apprentice” after Trump left the show, and the president’s hair is “real.”

Throughout the afternoon summit, Trump delivered quotes that just as easily could have come from his ranging Twitter feed.

On tweeting:

“I call Twitter a typewriter, that’s what I really call Twitter. Because it goes onto Facebook automatically and it goes onto Instagram. And it goes onto television. More so Fox than it does CNN.”

“I’m actually a good speller.”

On his television background:

“I said, ‘Had I never done “The Apprentice,” would I be president?’ He said, ‘Maybe not.’ And I said, ‘I think I would have.’”

“Crazy MSNBC, they’re stone cold crazy. I made them a lot of money with ‘The Apprentice,’ and I gave them a top show when they were dying on NBC. But they don’t like me too much. They wanted a big extension, they used Arnold Schwarzenegger instead. Big movie star. You know what? He died. He died.”

On those gathered at the summit:

“Some of you are extraordinary. I can’t say everybody. Some of you are extraordinary. The crap you think of is unbelievable.”

On his social media following:

“I don’t have the fake people. You know a lot of people buy people. I don’t want to do that.”

On the 2020 Democrats:

“What they’re looking at is pure socialism. Or worse than socialism, you know, there’s a word called communism.”

“I spoke too early on Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren. I should have saved it.”

On his “Salute to America” celebration:

“We had on the Mall, just the other day, Fourth of July. A tremendous success, it was pouring. The weather was just — it was beautiful in one way. They learned it was my real hair that day. Because I was drenched.”
