President Donald Trump has been using Twitter to promote fake news stories and push his own agenda, but it has been his signature style that has drawn attention.
He has also shown a willingness to use social media to create his own echo chamber and amplify the voices of white supremacists.
“The president has an agenda,” said David Axelrod, a former adviser to President Barack Obama who is now president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
“He wants to spread it around and try to have it all the time.”
The president has used Twitter to spread his agenda.
“What I would say is the president is not a fake news guy.
He’s not a propagandist,” Axelrod said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“He’s not trying to convince you that the president doesn’t believe something.”
White supremacists rally in support of white nationalist leader Richard Spencer at the University of California, Berkeley, on Saturday.
Trump has frequently retweeted his supporters, sometimes with inflammatory rhetoric.
He recently said he would be willing to shoot journalists who did not cover the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the killing of nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, by a white man who claimed to be motivated by the Confederacy.
“There is no other country in the world where I would tolerate that kind of violence,” Trump said on Twitter.
“This will end very badly for our country and the world.”
But Trump has also encouraged his supporters to share his agenda, saying, “The best thing to do is to get to work and start making America great again.”
He has retweeted several times about the death of Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who was killed in the line of duty after she was killed during an altercation with a police officer.
In September, Trump retweeted a picture of the widow of a man killed in a car accident in New Mexico.
The picture was captioned, “Wanted to share that they had the honor of welcoming my son’s wife.
She has a daughter in the Navy, too.”
Trump’s tweets also often include images of Trump’s family members, including his sons, and images of himself.
He often uses photos of himself in front of buildings, including Trump Tower in New York City, and his children, including Barron and Eric.
“I have no doubt that the President is a prolific tweeter,” said Jennifer Palmieri, a campaign spokeswoman.
“We see him every day tweeting about what he wants to do and what he thinks people want to hear.
And he has been very successful in doing that.”
Trump and his supporters have used social media in ways that are unusual for the president.
His Twitter account is often silent and his followers are often only in the room when he speaks.
He posts videos and messages via Instagram and Instagram Live.
And many of his tweets use hashtags, such as #MAGA or #MakeAmericaGreatAgain, that are usually reserved for the President.

He sometimes uses emoji that he uses for text messages or tweets.
Trump also uses hashtags for social media, including #MAGACorruptCaucus, #MakeTrumpGreatAgain and #MAGATorruptCongress.
He tweeted at least four times about Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump’s tweet about Clinton was retweeted more than 5,000 times.
On Friday, Trump was asked about the “fake news” on his account and said he does not care about the fake news.
“It’s fake news,” he said.
“Nobody cares about the fact that it’s fake.
It’s fake stuff.
But I’m not interested in talking about it.
I’m interested in winning.
I don’t want to talk about it.”
He added: “It will end well.”
He also used Twitter again on Saturday, saying that he has a new job to do: “I am going to take care of it.”
It is not clear how the President plans to use Twitter in the future.
He did not respond to a request for comment.
Aides to the President declined to comment on Saturday about how he will use Twitter as he transitions into his second term.
“President Trump has taken a very different approach to Twitter in his first term than he did in his second,” said Stephanie Grisham, a spokesman for Trump.
“And he believes that Twitter is a platform that’s very valuable to him, that he will continue to use it and make sure that the American people know the difference between what’s real and what’s fake.”
