President Donald Trump uses Twitter to break news, feud with critics and even conduct diplomacy. Some critics said his tweets increase the visibility of his presidency whilst some said they disrupt the governance.

Trump’s tweets only increase the visibility of his personal opinion but not that of US policies, said Simon Shen , the GLOs founder at an assembly at Shue Yan University today.

In the past, US presidents were prudent in terms of behaviour and internet disclosure. As a public figure, Trump's words and deeds are subjected to the scrutiny of public opinions, said Shen.

“Due to Trump’s hatred against the US bureaucracy, he has always been attempted to maximise the flexibility in expressing his opinions in the internet to bypass the bureaucracy in the US,” said Shen.

Graduated from University of Oxford and Yale University, Simon Shen is one of the few international relations scholars originating from Hong Kong who earned both international recognition and local prominence. As one of the most prolific

scholars in the rank of associate professorship, he has published more than 70 academic articles and publications.

“Trump only focused on his own ‘tribe’ but not the other parts of the world, and the trade war with China wouldn’t change the attitude of them (the ‘tribe’) towards Trump,” said Shen.

His “tribe” consists of supporters among the swing states like Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, the working class who had been experiencing relative deprivation due to globalisation.

Speaking of the US-China trade war, disagreement between the US and China had nowhere to be seen before Trump’s presidency, said Shen.

Presidents of the two countries would reach consensus on most of the diplomatic decisions. Even China was supportive during the 911 terrorist attack in 2001. It was peaceful before Trump and Xi Jin Ping were taken office, said Shen.

“China has become economically powerful and is now equipped with rich resources and the US government had also adopted protectionist policy against China. Consensus and agreement are no longer indispensable for the two countries,” said Shen.
