Trump is the second President of the Social Media age

And he weaponized it and pointed that weapon at our heads.

This alone is reason enough to impeach him, and ban candidates from social media.

Is Trump more evil than Obama was good? (id have to think about that one)

I think social media needs to be heavily regulated.

that's why he uses social media(twitter) speaking in phrases and (CAPS).
