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.

The Trump Organization:
725 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10022
Phone: 212-832-2000

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.

  1. I’m your volunteer from the first days and I’vbe sent you many many writings for your campaign. Today I have wery good material about Antisemitism and need your e mail to send it. Sofia Gelman. 323 851 7092

  2. I THINK Donald j Trump is doing a great job an I know he has a long way to go I think he’s the 1st president in my lifetime with exception of Ronald Reagan that really cares about Americans that’s the citizens legally in America I do have 1 question why do we allow lobbyists in America we’ve created a pay to play were the few with a lot of money make rules regulations an laws that benefit them an do nothing but hurt the working people isn’t that the job of our elected officials senate an congressman No more lobbyists equality for all legal Americans

  3. What happened to help for veterans. What about infrastructure? Putting America back to work. You are not doing anything you promised asshole.!

    • You should drink a little less and think a little more, perhaps use a dictionary and look up some words to help explain your position rather than relying on vulnerability.

    • Let’s see. . . you expect President Trump to have drained the swamp, built the wall, rebuilt the military, replaced Obamacare, and fixed all the other messes Obama left before he’s been in office for less than two months? Dog, you think President Trump is even better than I do, and I worked for him the last two years and know he is fabulous!

  4. Congress & President have always had Washington DC staff to receive emails and phone calls from Constituents. We definitely don’t want to tweet. We paid for the Internet and Paul Ryan stole it to give to Corporations, etc. to make a fortune. Millenials use it for cheap business start up and saving red tape. We need it for uncensored information. The Middle Class has $130 billion stolen out of Medicare yearly to fund free Obama Care while Doctors refuse lousy Medicare plan, I just had $600 charge for a blood test. Middle Class Retirement Trust, Social Security is being robbed. and paying 50% of the Federal outlay along with Sequestration(why, only Military and Medicare cut). We don’t receive a Pension and vociferously object to Medicare being used in present Obama Care Replacement. Tax the 1% Oligarchy to fund Replacement subsidies and Welfare, Illegals, Muslim recipients They all contribute $0 and Ryan gives them more than working class. Ryan decides how many millions of Visas, Green Cards, Hb1, 2 Visas to give to billionaire Tech companies, etc and Middle Class loses in at least two ways. l) We lose the job to Green Card, Legal Permanent Citizens, etc. 2) We have to pay Welfare & benefits for Aliens who can’t survive on 1/4 Visa salaries on the jobs we lost. We are losing $12 billion per day deficit spending for migrants we don’t need and can’t afford. We can easily pay for a wall with a fraction of savings from less daily deficit spending. The Dreamers have no age restriction. They can be 50,55, 60 years old Dreamers are also receiving 3 years living expenses grants, working permits, $2000 per month – along with free housing, food, medical .$167 million per month, Ryan allocated another $2 billion. $20 trillion debt is unsustainable and multi-generational. There will be riots in the streets if our children and grandchildren have to support savages and Illegals. Obama hired and Ryan funded 198,000 Federal employees 2 months before end of term. Ryan just gave Federal employees 35% raise with new phony Locality factored in; they are working from home now for three days per week. Rich Congress and Federal employees should pay their own Private pensions and Millionaire Medical. They also should not receive Pensions and the same Medical as taxpayers. The middle class demands approval of all expenses charged to our our Social Security Trust. We are owed $3 trillion we contributed and receive less than Poverty-level wages.The average Middle Class person can’t afford auto repair, has less than $500. Social Security is not included in the budget for good reason. The Trust is for Earned Benefits. That’s what we were promised when we signed on when most of us were 16 on our first job. We are owed $trillions while we live like beggars. We are dying 12 years earlier currently. We can’t go to a restaurant or on a vacation with meager Retirement while Ryan gives even a single unaccompanied child $1800 per month minimum . The average Social Security payment is $1250 after paying Medicare premium of $110. We then get killed with high deductibles and co-pays which Welfare, Illegals never pay. I understand in 2017, Welfare recipients are eligible for Social Security like Illegals. I knew every detail in the 2016 budget. After Congress 7 week vacation and since, Congress hides behind Closed doors to deliberate budget.. We must have expenses how our monies are spent and how Congress voted. We want to know who voted and get a candidate to run against Traitors. I have been a Republican all my life but have been betrayed and had Social Security stolen since 2010. 2010, Seniors voted 59% Republican and won the election for them. That was the first year since SS inception, recipients did not get a raise. Paul Ryan did give himself and Federal employee buddies a $4700 raise. PAUL RYAN IS IN LOVE WITH OBAMA, FUNDED HIS EVERY WISH. THERE IS EVEN $89 BILLION IN 2016 BUDGET FOR A STATESIDE GITMO. RYAN EVEN INVENTED A CPI COST OF LIVING FOR SENIORS, ie IF YOU CAN’T AFFORD HAMBURGER, YOU ARE EXPECTED TO EAT BEANS. . . . .

  5. Can you please stop sending food overseas where people don’t even like the United States and help the people here in the United States that need the food in time they’ll be nice to us in the United States no food no hope thank you

  6. President , Donald Trump, congratulations and thank you. I could go on for hours about what you have done for the citizens of the U.S.A. My Wife and I have six grandchildren,
    the amazing thing is that one evening the 7 and 10 year old were at my house playing vigorously, When you came on TV to speak they both stopped playing and sat down on
    the floor and listened to your whole speech. You didn’t change the country for now , you have changed it for generations to come. The one thing that touched me after you
    were elected, a choir came on the radio and sang God Bless America.

    P.S. I grew up next to your neighbor John Scarpa here in New Jersey. Again Thank You and God Bless You and Your Family.

  7. dear mr president of the usa i am english and i can only admire your stance for to long politcians have ruled and logic has gone out of the window , i wish you all the best, but you do not need it you know what must be done against all adversary logic is winning and so are you.

  8. I am a 65 year old disabled female I called Social Security one day and ask them why I only get $912 a month and other people are getting 12:30 and $1,400 a month they said the less you made the more you the more you made the less you get what’s the deal with that it takes every dime for me to survive every month and most of the time I have to turn to my family for help I would like to know what is going on

  9. Mr. President, you did a fantastic address to the nation today. I live in Washington State and was watching Fox News O’Reilly. Evidently a state trooper checked on an accident near Tacoma and found that Armando Chavez, an illigal alien was supposed to be deported 4 times, a felon. The Trooper contacted ICE and for doing this our Governor Jay Inslee suspended him from his duties. What can you do about this.

  10. Bonsoir Mr le Président de l’Amérique Donald Trump.Le Seigneur Jésus-Christ m’envoie pour vous dire qu’il est avec vous dans ce grand combat que vous menez en Amérique pour lui et le salut de son peuple.Si Dieu est avec toi qui sera contre toi? Jésus-Christ me dit de vous dire,de ne pas vous inquiétez,car il voit tout ce que tes opposants font,mais sache qu’ils peuvent rien contre vous,ils peuvent vous faire la guerre,mais ils ne peuvent pas vous vaincre, car il est le Dieu tout-puissant qui assure ta sécurité. Voici les chapitres biblique qu’il m’a dit de vous donner aujourd’hui le 01Mars 2017: Psaume 1 et. Psaume 2. Sache que je vous soutien en prière et les jeûnes pour la réussite de votre mission. Que la paix de Dieu soit avec vous et vit éternellement au nom de Jésus-Christ de Nazareth.Depuis l’Afrique (Nationalité Ivoirienne)

  11. Trump i ask you to stop these banks and real estate companies and contractors that make way to much money for what they do. If you can pass a law saying contractors and real estate companies and bank’s can’t put a fake price on homes anymore. The contractors will have a flat rate of 2000 to 3000 dollars for his work and the contractor can’t add a percentage to the sub contractors like the HVAC or plumbers. The contractors only make 2000 to 3000 dollars a home thats it. The real estate agents/ companies will only get a flat rate of 1500 to 2000 dollars. All there job is passing papers to the next person kids could do there job. Banks will not be able to get money Because they have some bad loans. They will not go look at a home and put a fake price on the home. If we can stop that then people wouldn’t default on loans because the home they have would be worth the loan amount or less
    So lets say your looking at a 2000 sqft home they have to look at what brands and show a list of every thing thay

  12. Paying for the infrastructure problems
    A federal fuel tax of $.30 could raise the 1 trillion over a 15 year period that would begin with the most needed repairs and move forward. Total of gasoline and Diesel fuel sold last year was about 177.7. billion gallons. This would bring in about 59 billion per year, thus making about a 15 year program of repairs. This included great consumption of fuel.

  13. illegals are being hired by this big companies and small ones too .The law is the law fine this big and small companies that hire illegals .This illegals cet paid sometimes dirt money,thats slavery of the worst case. we need to protect our citizens and you are the only one doing it.I admire that. great job.JM.

    • Mr. Trump – seems that whenever you open your mouth, it’s an advertisement of your remarkable stupidity !! Also, I find your orange-skinned face and bleached blond hair hysterical !!! Sincerely, Not A Fan.

  14. Angie says: Mr trump please do not wait for Mr. Schumer to get his four months to get everybody to hate you. Why is Obama getting away with threatening the government? And according to social media he is building an army to overthrow this government and no one is doing anything about it. Why am I reading on social media about an army FORT is being built in the middle of California by foreigners. They are also building up an army of foreigners because California is supposed to secede from the United States. Also a shadow Government is built two miles away from the white house with a big army to overthrow the new Government. You all really gonna sit back and allow this man and the Democrats who can only do evil gets away with destroying this government? Get all Obama people out. Even those who are Republican. Where is the F.B.I. Dont you see they are destroying you because they are putting there own plans.

  15. Dear Mr Presedent Elect please don’t allow our union to steal 62% of IAM pension checks from us retirees because of congress passing the stupid 2014 Multi-employer pension Act

  16. We are praying for you every day! Praying for God to give you courage, discernment, and wisdom based on His Word. Keep going strong in Him.

  17. Dear Mr.: President,

  20. Hi.sorry probably many emails.I would imagine. He has certainly made his mark.however.nothing would give me more pleasure than .going on national TV. Or even one to one.jif he is a man of genuine integrity. Face me please x

  21. I am concerned about the American Healthcare Insurance Plan. It seems it should be a better plan for older retirees and the disabled. Please go over ways to help all people. I am 71 years old and depend on Social Security to live on. If insurance rates go up, I will not be able to get out of the poverty level I now live in. Please consider the poverty level Americans in helping them, the retirees and the disabled when reforming the Insurance plan…..

  22. So carbon dioxide emissions do not contribute to global warming according to Scott Pruitt. Does he also think the earth is flat?

  23. I’m very disappointed together with all my other senior friends…..to find out this new Healthcare mess, your buddy Ryan proposed, and you agreed with it…(1) This insurance is not for everybody. (lie) (2) You said no cuts to Medicare and Medicaid (lie). (3) Having access vs coverage; (we have access, we need hep paying for coverage. (lie). So, what’s the truth, please tell us….we are worried.

  24. Alber Pike The entury with his cauce of Kukuks Clan, build 1861- 1865, first the one and second Adolf Hitler- Rothshild a born Rothshid of Wien,
    what will be the next sheparden against ashkenasen , and now aribic feeling, good is all of us tierd.

  25. I think that President Trump should not tweet that just gives the Democrat more ammo against him.I think he should talk up front with the people I hope that your health care bill helps us old people. My wife pays a supplement for both of us we are in late 70’s under of Obama care her monthly income of 1,100 a month she gets 400 dollars the insurance company gets over 700 dollars.For a supplement that they only pay 20% I think that we should give everything we have away and get on state care . I believe in you President Trump.

  26. There is a french base company called essilor outsourcing work to Mexico and closing labs in the usa causing huge amounts of job loss, look into it, Travesty! !!!

  27. As far as health care, how about going back to the way it was before Obama Care and start fixing that.

  28. I THINK PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING A GOOD JOB SINCE ITS ONLY BEEN A COUPLE OF MONTHS. GIVE HIM A BREAK AND GET OFF HIS BACK. HE HAS ONLY BEEN PRESIDENT A SHORT WHILE. I THINK HE IS GREAT AND TRYING TO DO WHATS BEST FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. WE ALL HAVE ISSUES WE WANT HIM TO WORK ON. GIVE HIM SOME TIME AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
