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. u are not fit to run this country u are a perverted person i would drather have barack obama for several more yeares then donald trump GO HILARY CLINTON

    • So much for calling trump a dumbass. Yes, he is TRUMP THE RUMP and get use to it. He is going to kick some butt in this country starting with cleaning up the mess in Washington D.C. Before you pass judgment on someone, read St. Matthew, Chapter 7 verse 1. It states, “judge not yet ye be judged.” I think its fabulous that President Trump is proactive today in dissolving the TPP; negotiating trade deals; bringing jobs back into our country discussing the means in which America can prosper again; and in dismantling the international planned parenthood organization for abortion practices. Abortion should be allowed only in the case of sexual assault (rape and incest) or when it is medically necessary for a woman to abort her baby if the woman should choose so under these conditions. Abortion is not a substitute for contraception. Nor should we be federally responsible in assisting other countries with taxpayer dollars in aborting a baby. The responsibility in funding abortions for these women is not the United State’s duty. Its time that each country’s government is held accountable for its own people. Do we need to send millions of dollars to support almost every country in the world?

      • If you are against abortion then you should be FOR birth control to help keep unplanned pregnancies from happening and this gag order will only increase abortions as it will ALSO decrease access to birth control. Please think for yourself and quit SWALLOWING this hook line and sinker! That is what the billionaires who want their tax breaks and less regulations on their business’ count on YOU doing. The 3 G’s – Guns, God and Gays, that is how they think of you. They do bills like this to appease you so you will vote for them. THANK YOU for helping to sell our country down the road for your PERSONAL religious beliefs. THAT is why our country was founded on SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE.

  2. Dondle Trump thank you for beening our president you will make American great again your wife is going to make a beautiful first lady when you place the health care please add dental care with the health care and get rid of the dental care insurance it does not pay anything all it pays for is preventive care

Al Sharpton is not only a trouble maker but he has avoided paying taxes and thus prison for income tax evasion -Wesley snipes went and did time so what makes him so special-just cause Obama protected him.It is wrong to allow someone like him to get away with all the problems he has caused going back to the riots in Los Angeles-now that we finally have a real President in Donald Trump I along with millions of others hope justice will finally be served on on his sorry self.
