Appositio


Appositio (ap-po-sit’-i-o): Addition of an adjacent, coordinate, explanatory or descriptive element.

Given the largely negative reaction to the undocumented Tweets alleging illegal wiretaps conducted by former President Obama against President Trump, Trump may want to find more productive ways to work the Tweetsosphere.

That is, the White House should consider using  Twitter to create realistic, upbeat, well-considered fact-based “headlines” for each day. That is, something like “President Trump Resigns” could keynote a given day in a very positive light and help put the USA back on course.
