President Trump @realDonaldTrump is following 47 accounts on Twitter, a collection of family members, conservative pundits, administration officials and Trump-brand properties who collectively creating an obvious echo chamber.
When President Trump opens his own Twitter feed, he scrolls through something that offers a very different assessment about the pandemic and how the Trump administration is doing than how public perceive he is doing.
What do they say about the pandemic? How does President Trump’s social media bubble look like? To find it out, I created a Twitter account solely for the purpose of following the exact same 47 accounts that President Trump are following.
In a nutshell, here are the top 5 narratives from President Trump’s perspective:
#1: I’m doing a great job
#2: This is China’s fault
#3: Dems would be worse
#4: The media (excluding Fox News) is fueling the panic
#5: But there is no reason to panic because I’m doing a great job
