Analysis of some of what President Elect is Reading

 BuzzFeed News analyzed all the links Donald Trump tweeted since he launched his presidential campaign to determine where the president-elect gets his news.

“…To better understand Trump’s media consumption, BuzzFeed News turned to the president-elect’s largest source of public proclamations and shared news: Twitter. While Trump’s media consumption and methods appear opaque and unconventional, the stories he chooses to share with his now 16 million–plus followers offer a unique window into the news and commentary that catch his eye.” [Note – we are always vigilant in not assuming, but learning about issues and leaders – we undertake this effort each and every day, we read widely and are not deterred by complexity or the need to learn more – we reach out to our professional communities for assistance. Keeping all means of communication open with our groups, communities and with those whom we serve, regardless of what sector we work in, is especially critical now.]
