Trump makes first tweets as president 2

Donald Trump has sent out his first tweets as President of the United States.

“Today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring…power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People,” he wrote, in the first of a series tweets from his @realDonaldTrump account.

Trump, who has 20.6 million Twitter followers, turned the @realDonaldTrump account into a potent political weapon during his shock run to the White House, fueling huge interest in how he will harness social media as president.
