Tweets by U.S. President Donald Trump are viewed in Moscow as his official position and read by his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, the Kremlin said on Tuesday.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday it was not his place to comment on Trump’s actions, but added: ”In any case, everything which is published from his authorised Twitter account is perceived by Moscow as his official statement.
“Naturally, it is reported to Putin along with other information about official statements by politicians,” Peskov said, adding that Putin was not a Twitter user himself.
I would bet big money that other foreign governments also perceive these tweets as official statements, because they KNOW that they are the actual words coming from the man currently occupying the Oval Office.
Which means that tweets like this are considered by many to be the official position of the president of the United States.
Just imagine how our adversaries will use that to target American media outlets or dismiss their reporting altogether.CNN’S slogan is CNN, THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS. Everyone knows this is not true, that this could, in fact, be a fraud on the American Public. There are many outlets that are far more trusted than Fake News CNN. Their slogan should be CNN, THE LEAST TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 9, 2017
