Piers Morgan claims Donald Trump is a 'technophobe' who 'doesn't use email'
The Good Morning Britain presenter, who is a close friend of the 45th US President, claimed Mr Trump gets his assistants to print out emails.
The President then writes handwritten replies which are scanned and sent back, Mr Morgan said in an interview with The Sun on Sunday.
The former News of the World editor said the leader of the free world “doesn’t use email himself, so I email his office and they print it out for him”.
He added: “I have had two in the last week.”

Mr Morgan said: “He calls me ‘Champ’ because I won Celebrity Apprentice. It’s cool having the US President call you Champ.
“When I have had tough times, he has called me and we talk about personal stuff,’ Mr Morgan revealed.
“When I get a new job, like on GMB, a handwritten note from Donald Trump arrives. If you’re loyal and respectful to him, he will be incredibly loyal and incredibly respectful back.”

Mr Morgan added: “Trump is a good friend. I have interviewed him more than 30 times and I have spoken to him on the phone every three or four weeks for years.”
The Life Stories presenter added that his relationship with Mr Trump is even stronger than the President's ties with ally Nigel Farage, who is pitted to become his unofficial advisor on UK issues.
Mr Morgan said: “Farage thinks he has a better relationship with Trump than I do, but Trump only follows one Brit on Twitter and it ain’t Farage, it’s Morgan.”
