Behind the Scenes: Ex-Trump Aide’s Account of Dictating Presidential Tweets

Trump's Former Aide Reveals How the President's Social Media Messages Were Crafted

Madeleine Westerhout, a former aide to Donald Trump, provided insight into the former president’s Twitter habits and preferences during her testimony in court. She described how Trump preferred her to take notes and draft tweets for him, which he would then edit by hand before they were posted.

Westerhout recounted her tasks both before Trump entered office in 2016 and during his tenure in the White House. She mentioned that Trump’s top aide, Dan Scavino, also had access to Trump’s Twitter account but that she occasionally assisted in crafting tweets, especially when Scavino was absent.

Trump, known for his active presence on Twitter, apparently preferred dictating tweets to Westerhout rather than typing them himself. She would quickly take notes, type up the draft, and then print it out for him.

Former Aide Spills on Trump’s Social Media Strategy

Westerhout also learned the characteristics of a “signature” Trump tweet, noting that he liked to capitalize certain words, such as “country,” and use exclamation points and the Oxford comma.

Despite being a prolific Twitter user, Trump reportedly did not use a computer or have an email address. Westerhout also mentioned that Trump preferred to work in a dining room rather than the Oval Office to keep the Resolute Desk pristine.

Westerhout’s testimony shed light on Trump’s Twitter practices and preferences, providing a glance at his approach to social media communication.
