Next month, nearly every American with a cellphone will receive a text message from President Donald Trump-and there's almost nothing you can do to stop it.
On October 3, at 2:20 p.m. a message will crawl across television and radio broadcasts for 60 seconds. The reason for delaying the wireless alert test is unclear.
When the WEA test alert is issued, assuming nothing goes wrong, smartphone owners throughout the USA will see a message that says Presidential Alert as the sender, followed by the message: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System".

The test message will have a header that reads "Presidential Alert", according to the agency.

Users whose phones are on will twice hear a tone and vibration and then see an English-only (for now) message: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System. No action is needed".
Despite the agency's assurances in their official press release, as well as reporting from CNN and other outlets, however, many on social media remain unconvinced that the Presidential Alert system can not be co-opted by Trump's more Twitter-centric tendencies.
If you receive an actual alert, how will you communicate with your family?
The WEA is a new way to reach an America increasingly attracted to fragmented forms of media found on phones, tablets and laptops.
