One thing that has set President Trump apart from most world leaders is his insistence on constantly tweeting his unfiltered thoughts and feelings.
Tweets from the President are often inaccurate, unethical, or even borderline nonsensical but, up until yesterday, they were always completely verbal.
But on September 2, 2020, everything changed. For the first time, President Trump sent a tweet with emojis!
