Trump’s White House social media summit was short on substance, and heavy on rhetoric

Trump’s White House social media summit was short on substance, and heavy on rhetoric. The event started with an interview by Kellyanne Conway of pro-Trump social media personalities, ““Diamond & Silk” - which attendees described to CNN as an “unintelligible rant.” The remainder of the gathering saw President Trump take the podium for a rambling speech that touched on the stock market, the census, his pardon of Scooter Libby, his hair, and social media. On social media, he spent a lot of time suggesting, without evidence, that there was a conspiracy to keep his follower count and engagement low on Twitter. Attendees alternately described the overall experience as “having zero content,” "a “circus show,” and an invite for “300 people to sit here and listen to personal anecdotes and stories.” CNN
