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:

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.!

  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.
