People unnerved with Trump's 'tantrums'

President Donald Trump's tweets have flummoxed foreign leaders, political analysts and leaders in business and society.

Past few weeks, he has taken to the micro-blogging platform and threatened the judiciary, repeatedly attacked the press calling them the 'enemy of people' and over last few days, made astounding accusations against former President Barack Obama.

Needless to say, Trump's tweets have received unprecedented and extreme reactions.

Trump had his 'wires tapped'

Just 2 days ago, Trump tweeted: "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process."

Willimon: Trump emboldening our enemies

Willimon said Trump's rants were "broadcasting to foreign leaders his continuing impulsiveness, recklessness, delusion and ignorance about government. It emboldens our enemies to take advantage of his flagrant shortcomings."

He added, "President is free to say whatever he wants but no private company owes him an outlet. While you cannot prevent him from saying reckless things elsewhere, Twitter isn't obligated to facilitate that here."
