Donald Trump took to his favorite medium Tuesday to share his thoughts on the vice presidential debate. Although Twitter hasn't really been his friend lately, the Republican nominee decided to live-tweet the debate.
Trump announced his intentions to "watch the great Governor @Mike_Pence" and live-tweet the event Tuesday afternoon in a tweet (of course).
I will be watching the great Governor @Mike_Pence and live tweeting the VP debate tonight starting at 8:30pm est! Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 4, 2016
If you were curious what to expect from the Trump tweet storm, there is precedent: he live-tweeted a Democratic debate from last October, despite expecting it "to be a very boring two hours."
Trump said he would kick off the live tweets at 8:30 ET, but he decided to get the ball rolling a little early:
He followed with another announcement of the live-tweets to come. Very exciting!
I will be live-tweeting the V.P. Debate. Very exciting! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2016

A flurry of RTs:
Pence is right. Clinton & Obama tried to negotiate an Iraq troop extension but failed. Bush admin always anticipated such an extension.— Josh Rogin (@joshrogin) October 5, 2016
Trump analysis: Pence is winning:
.@mike_pence is doing a great job - so far, no contest!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2016
"They" are talking:
On Islamic State:
Clinton's Syria policy was "judged a failure" (links to his campaign for proof):
Trump wants "broad-shouldered leadership":
ICYMI: PENCE: I RAN A STATE THAT WORKED; KAINE RAN A STATE THAT FAILED. https://t.co/XuWaueNkH0— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2016
Trump says Clinton has ties to Putin:
And she is soft on North Korea:
And she put national security at risk:
Agrees the moderator Elaine Quijano was interrupting Pence more often than Kaine:
And Trump declares Pence the winner:
Mike Pence won big. We should all be proud of Mike!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2016
