This week, both President Trump and the media’s tweets were focused on immigration, but they framed the issue in very different ways. 

After “Trump” and “immigration,” some of the media’s most-used terms on Twitter include “family” and “children.” Meanwhile, the Tweeter in Chief used words like “illegal” and “border” in his posts on the subject.

All this to say, even when the media and the president find a common focus, they view the situation through entirely different lenses.
