Donald Trump announced yesterday that he would no longer delight and enrage the universe with his nuggets of wit and wisdom via Twitter once he is elected President.
Politico reports that he made the proclamation at a rally in Rhode Island:
“You know, I tweeted today, @realDonaldTrump. I tweet,” Trump said. He added, “Don’t worry, I’ll give it up after I’m president. We won’t tweet anymore. I don’t know. Not presidential.”
The remark comes days after wife Melania remarked that she wished her husband would tone down his Twitter habit.
Say it ain’t so!
For those who have spent way too much time on Twitter for the past several years, Trump’s finest Twitter moments pre-date his announcement for the White House. The world needs Trump on Twitter. Being Commander-in-Chief should deprive us of these unforgettable gems as compiled by The Mirror:

Thanks- many are saying I'm the best 140 character writer in the world. It's easy when it's fun.

It’s hard to imagine life without @realDonaldTrump. Maybe cooler heads will prevail and Trump will be given some limited opportunities to spin his 140-character magic. Let’s hope so. After all, I think we can all agree that tweeting is not, by definition, “un-presidential.”
After all, whatever Trump tweets as president, it will hard to be as embarrassing and divisive as this:
