Trump is known for his use of the social media platform. On Twitter, Trump is known to insult others and announcing unvetted policy decisions.

Time Interviewer: President Trump speaks a lot about fake news on his Twitter account. Do you follow him?

French President Emmanuel Macron: I have to confess something which could perhaps appear very sane from your point of view. I don’t tweet myself. And I don’t follow myself. Because it’s not compatible with the kind of distance you need to govern and to preside. To be president, you need some distance from events, from the permanent flows of news and reactions. I have to confess I’ve heard of some news about Mr. Trump’s Twitter account, but I don’t follow and I don’t tweet myself.
