After complaints about liberal sex scandal tweets, Trump returns to what Americans really care about

President Trump is on a roll.

The Commander-in-Chief continued his trademark use of Twitter late Wednesday and early Thursday, shifting the national conversation away from the flurry of sex scandals wracking the nation–and toward policies aimed at improving the country.

The President gave particular attention to the tax plan currently being debated in the Senate.

President Trump is selling the tax plan as a historic tax cut that will lead to a boom in prosperity for all Americans–especially the working class.

He drove that message home in an inspirational video posted to Twitter Wednesday evening.

President Trump also used Twitter to tout his own record on the economy.

Engaging in battles with liberal-controlled institutions has become a Trump trademark, which the President fulfilled by taking aim at both the New York Times and Democrat detractors of the GOP tax bill.

But overall, President Trump used his social media time to talk policy.

This comes after the President penned tweets rebuking the media for the sudden rush of sexual allegations.

Prior to that, the President also retweeted three videos that allegedly depicted crimes committed by Muslim extremists.

Liberals complained about the early-morning tweets, but they were well-received by his base.

President Trump, who has proven himself adept at the art of persuasion, uses tweets like the Joe Scarborough jab and the Muslim videos to strengthen the emotional connection he has with his core supporters–showing them he stands with them on culture war issues.

Following those tweets up with the videos about his plans to rebuild America show the “contrast principle” in action. President Trump contrasts the negativity of the left’s misdeeds with his positive “America First” message.

President Trump is beloved by his supporters for being a political outsider who doesn’t follow the typical rules of engagement. Even when his tactics have seemed questionable, the President has repeatedly shown he has a method to the madness.
