Does Donald Trump Use Email?

He’s forgone the traditional press release for tweets, but the president-elect did not hide his disdain for technology and email in particular.

When asked about allegations of Russian hacking of the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump redirected the blame to technology and email.

“I think we ought to get on with our lives,” Trump said Wednesday at his Mar-a-Lago resort. “I think that computers have complicated lives very greatly. The whole age of computer has made it where nobody knows exactly what is going on. We have speed, we have a lot of other things, but I’m not sure we have the kind the security we need.”

In a deposition obtained by the New York Times, Trump said he didn’t use a office or home computer in 2007. He said his secretary would print letters on his behalf rather than send emails. Six years later in another deposition related to his real estate holdings, Trump said he rarely used email.

During the 2016 presidential campaign debates, Trump bashed the Democratic rival nominee Hillary Clinton for using a private email server to conduct government business. He attributed his successful campaign to a grassroots movement, which relied on voter enthusiasm instead of formal channels of communication.

His organization’s website, Trump.com, echoes the next president’s preferred means of getting in touch.

PLEASE NOTE: Mr. Trump does not receive and is not forwarded ANY e-mail messages, unsolicited phone or fax inquiries. Business proposals can be submitted in writing to the address below. The consideration of all submitted material will be at the discretion of The Trump Organization. Any materials provided for review cannot be returned.

In an announcement in November, however, Trump said he would be leaving his “great business in total”, and hand off control to his children. Whatever happens, your best bet at communicating with the president may be in person.
