‘Wouldn’t be here right now if not for Twitter’

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has said that he has reached the position where he is now because of Twitter and the social media platform helps him get around the media.
“(I) probably wouldn’t be here right now, but very seldom. We have a tremendous group of people that listen and I can get around the media when the media doesn’t tell the truth, so I like that,” Trump told report­ers at a joint White House news conference with visit­ing German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Trump was responding to a question if he ever re­gretted his tweets.
“By the way, my second question, are there from time to time tweets that you regret,” a German re­porter asked.
