Trump's Tweets

Interesting look at President Trump's international and diplomatic messaging and their effectiveness.  I've long just assumed that some of his statements and Tweets that may seem strange or off to us Americans are actually aimed at specific international audiences.

Take the Tweet of Trump as Rocky. The timing of a seemingly out of nowhere Photoshop seemed strange to the US audience. But in hindsight the Rocky Tweet coming at the same time as him signing the Hong Kong sanctions law was clearly a message to both China and the people of Hong Kong. And it seems that the protesters in Hong Kong got the message loud and clear.

The same cannot be said of the people at the Washington Post.
