President Trump, Twitter, and The Law of Supply and Demand

Although I support any American citizen's right to run for President as a layperson (rather than as a career politician), and respect President Trump's election as valid, six months into his Presidency, I am now convinced that he does not treat the of the voice of the Office of the President of the United States with due gravity.

The voice of the President of the United States has been reduced to unstructured, poorly written Tweets flooding social media and inflammatory, off-the-cuff statements.

President Trump is a businessman. He knows that prices increase (value increases) when supply falls. When supply floods the market, prices decrease (value decreases). The flood of President Trump's Tweets is diminishing the value of the voice of the President of the United States of America.

The fact that the Tweets, themselves, are often personal attacks and threatening rants, rather than substantive statements, exacerbates the situation. There is no unique product here challenging the Law of Supply and Demand...

Please. Enough.
