Should Trump tweet?

The simple answer to the question is:  No.

Michael Gerson takes up this subject here:  Why a tweeting President is so bad for our politics

Of course, I have extracted an excerpt:
"But the shallowness of Trump’s preferred form of communication indicates deeper things. His mind seems perfectly suited to a medium that rewards impulsiveness, that ignores fact-checking and that encourages incivility. Those are not generally the traits we hope for in a new president."
Well, as we are seeing daily, President Trump has a lot of traits we don't want in a new President.  But we're stuck with him and those traits.  In the scripted words of Denzel Washington, "God Help Us All."
