Trump pledges restraint with Twitter from White House

Trump pledges restraint with Twitter from White House

Lesley Stahl asked, noting "they are talking about a fence in the Republican Congress" and asking "would you accept a fence?" Trump falsely claimed he never said that.

Trump touted the millions of followers on his social media account and called it his "method of fighting back that's very tough".

Tens of thousands of people marched in streets across the United States on Saturday, staging the fourth day of protests of Donald Trump's surprise victory as president.

"I'm going to be very restrained, if I use it at all, I'm going to be very restrained", Trump said in an interview that will run in full on CBS's "60 Minutes" on Sunday.

He applauded the freedom of social media and emphasized Twitter's ability to spread messages.

After frequently deploying his controversial Twitter account over the past year to wage his White House campaign, President-elect Donald Trump is now promising to be "very restrained" with his use of the social media platform while in the Oval Office. Trump replied with this: "I'm going to be very restrained, if I use it at all, I'm going to be very restrained". "There should be nothing we should be ashamed of".

The Republican said his social media presence gave him greater leverage than the hundreds of millions of dollars spent on advertising by Democrats ahead of the November 8 election.

The next morning, he had a sudden shift in tone: "Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country".

"And I won. I think that social media has more power than the money they spent, and I think maybe to a certain extent, I proved that". "Tougher for her than it would have been for me", he said of the woman he'd frequently lambasted on the trail as "crooked" and a "liar".

Trump, for his part, didn't appear to heed his own comments Sunday, taking to Twitter to blast The New York Times over their coverage of him during the campaign.
