President Donald Trump will reportedly be live-tweeting the Democratic presidential primary debates taking place at the end of June, likely bringing out some of the Twitter zingers that have become a staple of his presidency.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the president will reportedly be live-tweeting the first round of the Democratic primary debates set for June 26-27, departing from his advisers’ previous strategy of keeping the president off of Twitter.

The president’s advisers have been concerned about the effect of Trump’s attacks on the candidates, as they could put his rivals more in the limelight nationally and protect them from shots taken by the other candidates on stage.

Should Trump go through with his live-tweeting plan, it is very likely that he will fire off a few shots at the candidates, nicknames in tow, as they debate the issues and discuss how they plan to prevent the president from securing a second term.

Here are a few of his classic zingers about the candidates:

Former Vice President Joe Biden:

Self-described democratic socialist Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.):

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.):

New Jersey Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.):

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.):

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke:

Biden and Sanders:

While the blasts against him from the candidates may reveal weak-spots in his political armor, Trump live-tweeting during the debates offers him the opportunity to respond to their comments and plans in real-time and garner more visibility.

Although the plan is for the president to take to the Twittersphere as the debates go on, it is not set in stone and the president may back down from live-tweeting the event. A campaign spokesperson did not give a comment to the Wall Street Journal on the reported plan.

The first round of the Democratic presidential primary debates has been set for the end of June, with the 20 candidates who made the cut separated into a pair of groups for the two-day event.

While I adore our POTUS and will vote for him, again, he does need to tone down the juvenile antics, stop stooping to the level of the democrats, rise above them and give constructive criticism on why they and their plans for this county are not fit to lead!!

If he does anything on twitter i should not be bashing the candidates but giving a constructive response as to why their policies will not work for America. Enough with the name calling and bashing…Trump would be able to dispute their policies in real time. Can’t think of a better way to get his message out.

Well yeah… he needs to keep the media talking about him. The less they talk about any Dem candidates, the better for him.

could he be any more childish, I sure hope not as he is like a disgusting spoiled child and a prime example of why abortion should be legal and in his case it should have been mandatory.

It’s unlikely anything the president can say will do more harm than the Dims will inflict on themselves during the debates. The knives are out and I’m hoping for a bloodbath.

Too bad he’s the president. Otherwise the OSC would call him on the Hatch Act.

Good and Kellyanne can be declared “high-ranking” and similarly exempted. Just like Castro and Sebelius were.
