Special | 12m 24s

In the weeks after the election Donald Trump has continued to use social media to circumvent tradional media and send a message to businesses. This week, he signaled his intention to cancel a contract to build a new presidential plane. While the stakes are higher as president-elect, the strategy is similar to the campaign when he told voters he is on their side and not politics as usual.
