Yep. You read that correctly. Coming this January, President Trump will be able to directly text every American.
The ability comes in the form of the Wireless Emergency Alert System. While it may seem unlikely, it is possible. According to guidelines on use of the system, alerts can be sent for the following reasons: Emergency situations/threats to life or safety, Amber Alerts about abducted children, Presidential Alerts.
While no president has ever used the system to date, we have also never seen a president like Trump.
Twitter has already been his favorite form of communication to bypass the mainstream media. Just imagine if Trump actually uses his power in the Wireless Emergency Alert System?
"Do you need to answer that?"
"Yeah. Give me just a second, President Trump texted me...again."
