The president has a habit of overreacting to events, especially those that make him look bad, and he has shown no inclination to curb his public behavior.
But that’s beginning to change as the presidency gets underway.
The Washington Post’s Greg Sargent reports on the challenges facing the new administration and the role of exercise and diet in the overall wellness of Americans.
The Post: …
The president has shown little inclination to curtail his public activity.
His Twitter feed is packed with tweets, and even the president’s official social media accounts often have plenty of time to digest the latest news, with no indication that his tweets will be cut short.
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted about a meeting between Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto that was canceled.
He followed it with a series of tweets suggesting he was the victim of a smear campaign, a claim that quickly fell apart when it was revealed Peña has a history of supporting Trump’s presidential bid.
This was not a meeting that we had agreed to, and if I were the Mexican President I would ask for the full and complete release of my taxes, according to my accountant.
Trump was also caught in a dispute with the FBI over its investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russia, which he has repeatedly denied.
He did not respond to requests for comment for this story.
In contrast, Trump has shown some signs of tempering his public-advice-giving.
On Thursday, he took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on the death of NBA star Dwyane Wade, saying, “Dwyane Wade was a fighter.
Dwyne Wade is a champion.
His passing is a terrible loss.”
Trump did not offer a comment on whether he was personally offended by Wade’s death.
The president’s public behavior is also changing.
He has recently been publicly critical of the media, which Trump has often criticized.
He also recently lashed out at the Republican National Committee for failing to support Trump’s bid for president.
And in the wake of Trump’s recent public criticism of the Republican Congress, the president is not shy about publicly criticizing lawmakers.
“Republicans in Congress are not going to help us because we are not the opposition,” he tweeted on Thursday.
“They are working overtime to give Democrats everything they want.
They are working with Democrats on every bill that comes to their desk.”
Trump has also continued to praise himself for his ability to deliver a message at an event, even if his comments are sometimes out of context.
He took to Instagram to post a photo of himself speaking at a rally with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
“Trump: I know I have a great microphone,” Trump said.
Thank you very much.”
