Donald Trump is using Twitter as the main weapon in his arsenal to undermine serious journalism and communicate “directly” with his low-info supporters:

Amid Trump’s tweetstorm, Republican operative Roger Stone denied that he had any communication with Russia during his time with Trump’s campaign.
