Trump Still Most Tweeted-About Politician During 4th Democratic Debate

The president remains big on Twitter — go figure

The remaining candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination battled Tuesday night in the fourth round of debates, but on Twitter, there was no contest: President Trump was most-discussed.

A review of data from previous debates shows that Trump has consistently been the most tweeted-about American politician during democratic debates, including both nights of the June Debate in Florida, both nights of the July debates in Detroit, the September debate in Texas and Tuesday’s showdown in Ohio.

Users of the microblogging platform were into a few things besides the president Tuesday, too. The big moment they tweeted the most about was when candidate Julian Castro said, “Police violence is also gun violence.” As for the candidates on the stage, former vice president Joe Biden was most tweeted-about,  followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren. That echoes recent polling that shows the two of them at the top of the Democratic field.

Trump himself weighed in on the debate Wednesday morning, writing, “You would think there is NO WAY that any of the Democrat Candidates that we witnessed last night could possibly become President of the United States. Now you see why they have no choice but to push a totally illegal & absurd Impeachment of one of the most successful Presidents!”
