United States president Donald Trump has defended his frequent use of twitter by saying that the social media platform allows him to bypass media propaganda against him.

In an interview with Fox News yesterday, Trump added that he would not have been president, if it was not for his twitter posts.

Trump added that he has over 100 million followers on various social media platforms and therefore he is the creator of his own media image.

The American president has faced severe criticism for his frequent use of social media platforms to express his views.
