Trump said six hours before Obama’s address that he would be live-tweeting the speech, and then again an hour before, to remind all his followers.
“BIG NIGHT ON TWITTER TONIGHT. I WILL BE LIVE TWEETING PRESIDENT OBAMA’S SPEECH AT 7:50 P.M.,” the Republican candidate wrote, insisting that Obama discuss radical Islamic terrorism, a phrase that he’s declined to use.
By the end of the address, Trump said he was disappointed in how brief the speech was. He was also upset at the president’s word choice.
Wish Obama would say ISIS, like almost everyone else, rather than ISIL.
