Trump free to beat Great Firewall of China

Central Station | 9 Nov 2017

There is no stopping Donald Trump from Tweeting even if the social media platform is blocked by a "Great Firewall" during his visit to China, a US official said yesterday.

"The president will tweet whatever he wants," the senior White House official said aboard Air Force One just before Trump landed in Beijing.

"That's his way of communicating directly with the American people," he said adding "I'm sure we've got the gear aboard this airplane to make it happen."

The news about the Tweeter-in- chief fired Weibo users.

"Fake news. What's Twitter? This website doesn't exist," one quipped.

"In the three days that Trump's off Twitter, someone else will surely seize the throne," said another.
