Trump, the Ernest Hemingway of Twitter


While reading Fear by Bob Woodward, I find this quotation on page 207. It is President Trump’s reaction to Twitter doubling the allowed characters of a single tweet from 140 to 280. Woodward quotes the President: “It’s a good thing,” Trump said, ‘but it’s a bit of a shame because I was the Ernest Hemingway of 140 characters.”

I don’t want to question Woodward,  but is  he certain that Trump would not only know who Hemingway was, but also know why his writing style was so admired?
