Much of House Speaker Richard Corcoran's April Twitter activity seems aimed at one person: President Donald Trump.
The Republican and presumptive gubernatorial candidate tweeted at or about Trump in 19 of his 51 posts this month, often to compliment the president or favorably compare records. The tweets mimic the president's lingo, use his favorite hashtags like #MAGA and sometimes include slick pro-Trump graphics.
Twitter is, of course, Trump's favorite mode of communication, and he's known to share posts that heap praise on him, especially if he's tagged in it.
A single retweet from @RealDonaldTrump can instantly boost someone's profile (like, say, a Republican governor hopeful) before his army of followers, of which Trump can claim more than 50 million (though independent analysis has found millions are likely fake or bot accounts).
As often as Corcoran tweets at Trump, the president so far hasn't graced the Pasco County Republican with that kind of exposure. Instead, Trump has only tweeted support for one of the GOP candidates: U.S. Rep Ron DeSantis, who proudly boasts "Endorsed by @POTUS" in his Twitter profile. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam is a Republican in the race as well.
Trump has 52 million followers, Corcoran has nearly 14,000, DeSantis 186,000 and Putnam more than 25,000.
Corcoran has yet to formally declare he plans to run, but all signs indicate he will. And even though Trump has not shown interest in Corcoran, the conservative speaker is positioning himself to his own followers as a would-be ally to the president.
In some tweets, Corcoran has linked Trump's anti-immigration policies to the speaker's own proposals, often using the same language as the president.
A video accompanying one tweet calls illegal immigrants "rapists, murderers and drug dealers," just as the president famously remarked on the campaign trail. "Fake news" and "chain migration," two phrases that are a mainstay of Trump's vocabulary, make it into tweets as well.
He has also tweeted support for Trump action on taxes, health care and even plans to move the United States embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
The accolades extend beyond Trump to the president's cabinet. Corcoran has repeatedly thanked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, whose pro-charter school agenda is in line with policies Corcoran has advocated for as speaker.
Twitter isn't the only medium where Corcoran has channeled Trump. Corcoran's political action committee aired a controversial ad in January centered on another of Trump's pet issues: so-called sanctuary cities.
Without a Trump bump, many of Corcoran's tweets about the president get little traction. A good post will hit double-digits in retweets.
Meanwhile, DeSantis, a Fox News regular, will get hundreds, sometimes thousands of reactions to posts critical of the Russia investigation, former FBI director James Comey or other tweets coming to Trump's defense.
Of the three candidates, Putnam's Twitter account is the least focused on the man in the White House. Since the start of the year, he has tweeted more often about the Florida Gators men's basketball team than the president.
He did, however post a picture with Donald Trump Jr.
