Trump Sits Down With Dave Portnoy In Candid Interview. Talk Sports, BLM, COVID, and more.
On Thursday, President Trump sat down with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy and discussed various subjects, from sports, BLM, the stock market, COVID, and more. He even mentioned how he was in so many rap songs, but then went on to explain how things just flipped.
One of the highlights includes Portnoy pressing the president on the tweets he often receives backlash for.
Dave Portnoy: “Do you sometimes – because I follow you on Twitter and I know I do this – do you ever tweet out and be like – you wake up and, ‘Aw man, I wish I didn’t send that one out’?”
President Trump: “Often, too often… It used to be in the old days before this, you’d write a letter and you’d say this letter is very big. You put it on your desk and then you go back tomorrow and you say, ‘Oh, I’m glad I didn’t send it,’ right? But we don’t do that with Twitter, right? We put it out instantaneously, we feel great, and then you start getting phone calls – ‘Did you really say this?’ I say, ‘What’s wrong with that?’ and you find out a lot of things.”
Dave Portnoy: “You’ve been caught retweeting people, being like, ‘Oh, you just retweeted this crazy person,’ so you don’t even look. You just press retweet and you just fire from the hip,”
President Trump: “You see something that looks good and you don’t investigate it and you don’t know what’s on the helmet exactly, right, which is a miniature and you don’t blow it up, and it sometimes – I have found that almost always it’s the retweets that get you in trouble,”
