Donald Trump Now Says He Doesn't Like Tweeting

Really?!?

Donald Trump now claims that he doesn’t actually enjoy using Twitter.

He could have fooled us.

The president-elect has posted more than 34,300 tweets since joining the service in March 2009 ― a rough average of 11+ tweets per day. He’s repeatedly used the platform to antagonize opponents, blast celebrities and take aim at anyone who’s ever criticized him.

But in an interview with “Fox & Friends” host Ainsley Earhardt, which is set to air Wednesday, Trump claimed he didn’t really like using the micro-blogging service at all.

Watch a preview segment from the interview here:

Trump’s 20 million followers shouldn’t expect him to put down his smartphone anytime soon.

“Look, I don’t like tweeting, I have other things I could be doing,” he said. “But I get very dishonest media, very dishonest press. And it’s my only way that I can counteract.”

“Now if the press were honest, which it’s not, I would absolutely not use Twitter,” Trump added. “I wouldn’t have to.”
