My use of social media is “Modern Day Presidential” – Trump says after promising to take care of veterans

US President Donald Trump appeared on the stage of the veterans rally on Saturday night, decorated with a massive American flag.

At the “celebrate freedom” concert he worked to energize evangelicals in his political base, noting that the US currency was inscribed with the words: “In God we trust.”

“Since the signing of the declaration of independence 241 years ago, America always affirmed that liberty comes from our creator. Our rights are given to us by God, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away,” he said.

Trump praised veterans from each of the US military branches and highlighted his administration’s work to reform veterans’ services.

He has also taken to Twitter to celebrate the veterans writing “We will always take care of our GREAT VETERANS. You have shed your blood, poured your love, and bared your soul, in defense of our country”.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump also lashed out at the “fake media”, accusing it of trying to gag him and his supporters during a speech at the evangelical event honoring veterans in Washington.

“The fake media is trying to silence us, but we will not let them,” he said. “The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House. But I’m president, and they’re not,” he told attendees at the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

The president suggested the press “destroyed themselves because they went too far” and told supporters “Their agenda is not your agenda.”

Before taking the podium, he took the rare move of pinning one of his tweets to the top of his feed, one that appeared to shift his slogan from “fake news” to “fraud news”.

The President also accused the media of trying to convince lawmakers that he should stop using Twitter and said that his social media use is “modern day presidential”.

“The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media – but remember, I won…. ….the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN,” Trump tweeted.

Then he continued, “My use of social media is not Presidential – it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again.”
