I believe the President should be able to have a Social Media Accounts because we have social media accounts and he never said we couldn't have one & I believe he should have one to update the people on the part of he's life and the life of being a President.

I think social media is a good tool for the president because the people can see and hear how he reacts to questions and his views on issues. His ideas and comments can reach more people at one time.

I think social media is a great tool for the president because it interests younger people. Not many adolescents find joy in watching the news anymore, but reaching out to them with another type of media will help them understand and maybe even increase the likeliness of the President because he's "cool."

Yes I do think that social media can be a good tool for the president so he can try and persuade more people that he is in it for the people. However I am not one of his supporters.
