Donald Trump said during an interview published Sunday in the Sunday Times that he doesn’t regret his tweets, noting without the medium he might not be in the position he is.
“I don’t regret anything, because there is nothing you can do about it. You know if you issue hundreds of tweets, and every once in a while you have a clinker, that’s not so bad.”
Trump then cited his tweet claiming former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before the election — an allegation the president made citing no evidence.
“Now my last tweet, you know the one that you are talking about perhaps, was the one about being wiretapped, meaning surveilled. Guess what, it is turning out to be true . . . I predicted Brexit.”
Trump said he has large audience between Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, which lets him bypass the “fake media” to get his message out.
The president also said he is “really liking” the job when asked if he is still enjoying his role as president.
“I’ve enjoyed it,” Trump said. “We have done a lot.”
He went on to tout the progress he has made thus far during his time in the White House.
“We’re doing great. The jobs: Ford just announced they are doing three major plants, three major expansions, thousands of jobs. General Motors, Fiat, [a] couple of them off the record because ‘Why do I need this for?’ But a couple of them were going to build in Mexico, now they are building in Michigan. Now they are building in Ohio. We got it going.”
