m., while his personal account boasts nearly 21 million followers. It’s unclear, however, if Trump will use his new handle at all. In the past week, Trump has said he doesnt like tweeting , blaming the media for his proclivity to fire off messages in 140 characters or less. But he also told the Times of London last weekend that he would prefer to build up his personal account and “keep it at @realDonaldTrump.” In seven additional tweets, Trump highlighted other excerpts from his speech, including his proclamation that “January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again” and that the forgotten men and women of America will no longer be forgotten because Trump’s administration will put “#AmericaFirst.” He also pledged to bring back jobs, as well as protect the nation’s borders, wealth and even Americansdreams.

Day Dreamers Limited -- the artist collective of Kelly Tunstall, Ferris Plock, and creative studio Form & Fiction -- are making an animated series starring Donald Trump's Hair as the protagonist! From Hair to the Throne : Whenever the President drifts off to dreamland or is too busy Tweeting to notice, The Hair gets to work: undoing Trump’s wrongs, pacifying allies, counteracting hostilities, and unifying a divided nation.... This is not just a show about cheap laughs and making a mockery of our President. The overarching theme is the bipolar and symbiotic relationship between President Trump and The Hair, which together represent our divided nation. Our plans are to have The Hair engage and challenge not only the characters in the fictional world of Hair to the Throne but in the real world as well. Just imagine for a moment, the delightful Twitter conversations @realTheHair will have with @realDonaldTrump as we hold our President accountable for being elected to the most powerful office in the free world.

The New York Times reported this week that Trump had been forced to exchange his personal phone for an encrypted, secure one. Trump wasn't the only one tweeting: President Barack Obama sent perhaps his final messages to his followers via the @POTUS Twitter account Friday morning before it is turned over to the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump. “It's been the honor of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man,” a post to the account read, although it was not signed “-bo,” the typical indicator that the president himself had personally written the message. “I won't stop; I'll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love,” he continued in a subsequent post, encouraging followers to visit Obama.

Nearly 61 percent of Germans fear relations between Germany and the United States will suffer under Trump, according to a poll conducted by the Civey institute for the Tagesspiegel newspaper. Only 5 percent expect a positive change. Trump criticized German auto makers this week for failing to produce more cars in the United States and said he would impose a tax of 35 percent on vehicle imports. U.S. companies employ more than 600,000 people in Germany, the United States' biggest European trading partner, and German firms employ roughly the same number in the United States. Schaeuble said he wished Trump luck if he wanted to tell Americans which cars to buy. "That's not my vision of America and I don't think it's his either," he said. He also recommended not taking Trump's practice of tweeting plans for policy changes too seriously: "One shouldn't confuse Trump's form of communication with statements of government policy.

What was once seen by many as an impossibility will become a reality around noon Friday when Donald J. Trump stands on the Capitol's west steps to be sworn in as the country's 45th president. Trump started the day by tweeting , of course. Kellyanne Conway, a senior Trump adviser, said on FOX this morning that Trump would waste no time issuing executive orders. “By Monday I think you'll see him rolling back some of the job-killing regulations, some he considers to be unconstitutional measures. But until then he wants people to soak in the moment of this great time.” Democrats have indicated that they will push back at every opportunity. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said on CNN’s “New Day that he was “ready for the fight. I really am. I mean, it's a tremendous responsibility. This president ran an unconventional campaign to say the least.

On the morning of his presidential inauguration , the man who campaigned with a consistent and often controversial stream of tweets fired off what could be his last as a civilian. It all begins today! I will see you at 11:00 A.M. for the swearing-in. THE MOVEMENT CONTINUES THE WORK BEGINS! Donald Trump tweeted early Friday morning. The incoming president has already surrendered his Android smartphonefrom which he often tweetedand replaced it with a secure, encrypted device, the New York Times reported , citing sources close to the transition. It's not clear what that will mean for his future tweeting habits. But those around Trump, including incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and Vice President-elect Mike Pence, have suggested his tweets will continue to be a way he communicates with the American people. Starting Friday, Trump will also gain access to the @POTUS twitter account used by President Barack Obama during his tenure.

Emma Sims 9 min 14 sec ago Politics Donald Trump has allegedly made that most gallant of presidential sacrificestrading in his personal smartphone for an uber secure, Secret Service-approved contraption. Schrodinger's president – as he’s being quipped in the office, due to uncertainty of when T-Day actually commences and Donald Trump ACTUALLY becomes President Trump – has traded in the Android phone widely speculated to be his principal tweeting tool. Messages from Trump’s Twitter account come from both Android and iOS devices, but analysis shows that the Android tweets are the more vitriolic, prompting the belief that that particular phone is operated by Trump personally. The New York Times has reported that Trump is anxious at the prospect of being isolated should his personal Android phone be taken away. So unfair! So biased! That being said, even the stoic Barack Obama has testified to the hardship of such a trade-in, lamenting on The Tonight Show : “Does your three-year-old have one of those play phones? That’s basically the phone I got.

It's a new way to experience photos which brings them to life more than ever before. You'll look ridiculous wearing the viewer on your head in the process, but it's worth it to relive embarrassing drunken antics in glorious VR. A few short years ago if we'd recommended the official Twitter app as the best resource for tweeting from your Android device, we'd have been laughed off the internet. However a lot of work has since been put into the official app to help it compete and even surpass third party offerings. New features such as being able to embed tweets within tweets for some sort of tweetception shenanigans, as well as uploading GIFs, are all very welcome. These new features plus a streamlined interface, a lack of superfluous features some of its competitor apps contain and no ads makes this the best app for firing off a quick tweet. It might not be quite as glamorous as other media players, but if you want a no-nonsense app that can play pretty much any media file under the sun, then VLC for Android is the app for you.

The fire was initially contained but was then reignited by an explosion on the 10th floor, fatally weakening the building's steel structure, Ghalibaf said. A Red Crescent aid official said 13 teams of sniffer dogs and four robot search devices were working at the scene. A tunnel had been dug from an adjacent car park to reach the basement of the building where survivors may still be trapped, a city councillor told the ISNA news agency.

Barack Obama likes posing with children for image-boosting photographs, but his dark legacy will be the ordered drone strikes that nine times out of ten killed unintended victims thousands of whom were women and young children. Two days after taking office Obama authorized two CIA drone strikes in northwest Pakistan, which, combined, killed an estimated one militant and 10 civilians, including between four and five children. From that inauspicious beginning, Obama's drone warfare ramped up further. When a college student recently attempted to write a tweet for every drone strike ordered by Obama and carried out in the last decade, he gave up after 12 hours of constant tweeting, reaching only the year 2010, when the Nobel Peace Prize winner's drone strikes went into overdrive. “This outrageous explosion of watchlisting — of monitoring people and racking and stacking them on lists, assigning them numbers, assigning them ‘baseball cards,’ assigning them death sentences without notice, on a worldwide battlefield it was, from the very first instance, wrong,” said an anonymous source responsible for leaked documents that exposed Obama's drone tactics.

In the past, Trump’s accessibility created headaches for his aides, who couldnt always control who he was speaking to or what he was saying A few hours after President-elect Donald Trump was briefed by intelligence officials about Russian meddling in the election, an Associated Press reporter called his cellphone seeking an interview. The call went to voicemail and the reporter did not leave a message. About an hour later, Trump called back. It’s hard to imagine many politiciansparticularly one about to become president of the United Statescalling back an unknown number. How Trump operates With Trump, it’s simply how business gets done, whether he’s fielding calls from real estate partners and longtime friends or foreign leaders and congressional lawmakers in the weeks after the election. But as Trump prepares to take the oath of office Friday, the future of his ever-present Android smartphone is now a matter of national security.
