Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Thursday’s “Morning Joe” Twitter is “amazing,” and that “it’s like owning The New York Times without the losses.”

Trump claimed that he likes using Twitter so much because he is able to “fight back” when “a dope like a Rich Lowry goes on, or people like Megyn Kelly says things that are wrong, I’m able to tweet.” (RELATED: #AskTrump Goes As Well As You Might Think)

“In the old days you didn’t have that,” Trump continued. “What would you do, call a press conference to announce that somebody lost control of his mind on television last night and made a total fool of himself? You couldn’t do that. But with Twitter, with one tweet, 140 characters, you can knock somebody out. So it’s pretty cool.” (RELATED: Trump Swears Off Fox News, Raves About Stephen Colbert)
