The President Will Text You Today, Whether You Want Him to or Not
Despite that 'Lincoln quote' about not believing everything you see on the Internet, Trump is the first President to be a frequent user of social media.
Today, he'll reach out to every American via text, whether they want him to or not.
The text message won't be one of his infamous tweets he is always unleashing on Twitter. The message will be part of a test of a new emergency warning system by FEMA. According to a published report, the system is called WEA and is highest level of a system designed to warn folks about national emergencies or AMBER alerts.
At around 1:18pm CT today, you should receive this message on your phone - “PRESIDENTIAL ALERT - THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed.”
If you are a supporter of Trump, you can revel in the fact that the text gives the impression he is 'on the job.' If you don't support Trump, you can get the satisfaction of deleting a message from him.
