On Tuesday, Kellyanne Conway, advisor to President-elect Trump, appeared on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” to discuss the state of the Trump transition.
CNBC’s Joe Kernen asked Conway about Trump’s use of Twitter to deliver his message to the American people, and if other people on the Trump transition consult Trump when he tweets. Kernen was specifically asking Conway about a tweet Trump sent out regarding General Motors on Tuesday morning.
“I’m not one to disclose specific information like that, that’s confidential,” Conway informed Kernen. “I will talk about Twitter and his social media platforms generally, Joe. That’s going to continue, because he has combined 44 million followers on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.”
Kernen responded by comparing Trump to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un: “You’ve got Andrew worried again. He thinks you’ve got a crazy man over in North Korea with ICBMs. Now you’ve got a crazy man here tweeting whatever comes to mind without any due diligence with advisers.”
Conway quickly responded, ” I don’t think we want to compare North Korea’s leader to our president, and he’s not a crazy man. He’s the President of the United States.”
