Twitter diplomacy not good for Trump

China Daily | Updated: 2017-01-09 08:05

ALTHOUGH THE US CONGRESS tallied the Electoral College votes on Friday and officially declared Donald Trump has been elected president, a number of organizations are still planning demonstrations on Jan 20, the day of his inauguration. Beijing News commented on Saturday:

More than 100,000 people have registered their names to attend the Women's March on Washington, a Facebook event created by Teresa Shook, a retired attorney in Hawaii. The demonstration is expected to be the largest of all planned on Trump's first day in office if all online participants show up for the march. Its agenda ranges from immigrants' rights to police killings of African-Americans and, most importantly, equal rights for women.

Despite facing more than 100,000 online dissenters, who are planning an open demonstration on his inauguration day, the social media-savvy Trump is yet to fight back on Twitter. He seems busy defending his legitimacy as the next US president, after American intelligence authorities on Friday said Russian hackers had intervened in the presidential election to favor him.
