Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | Nov 15
Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | Nov 20
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | Dec 25
Wonderful holiday with my family at Mar-a-lago. Merry Christmas America! And Happy Hanukkah to secret global financial elite!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 20 Jan 2017
So many people saying best inauguration ever. No dry eyes when @ScottBaio sings Amazing Grace. #MakeCharlesInChargeAgain

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 21 Jan 2017
We had a great first cabinet meeting today about repealing politically correct civil liberties. Stay tuned to find out which one is going first!

Looks like there's already a wall on Mexican border. So I'll add boiling oil to pour on families trying to enter. From Dakota pipeline!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 27 Feb 2017
If rappers can say the N-word, why can't the Attorney General? Protests should stop.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 30 Apr 2017
Great first 100 days. Ending inheritance tax and environmental regulations will create millions of jobs. Very soon!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 6 Jun 2017
And the Supreme Court nominee is... @realDonaldTrump! I will fight for this country in every branch of government. #MAGA

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 24 Aug 2017
The failing @nytimes is lying about the new Muslim registry. My administration is not anti-Muslim. We are anti-Islam. Tell the truth!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 16 Sep 2017
I always said that I would be confirmed as Supreme Court justice. Chuck Schumer is a smart leader who knows how to get things done.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 9 Nov 2017
There never was a Muslim registry. It was a gift registry for Muslims because presents are against #sharialaw. Protests should stop.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 10 Nov 2017
Of course I know Muslims allow presents. I never said they didn't.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 2 Feb 2018
Wow, this worldwide recession is really really big. But now's the time to buy luxury waterfront buildings on the cheap!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 1 May 2018
If "Day Without Immigrants" strike is as big as lying media says, why is my beautiful wife Melania sitting right here? Protests should stop.

Today's terrorist attack was secretly ordered by Obama to try to make @realDonaldTrump look weak.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 12 Sep 2018
I would never accuse Obama of being connected to terrorist attacks. He's an honorable man who should just prove where he was yesterday.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 12 Sep 2018
Overrated @AlecBaldwin has always been an unfunny loser. But criticizing the POTUS during terror crisis is a new low. No class.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 15 Sep 2018
People say Thirty Rock was funny but I never thought so. And what about Rock of Ages? Biggest flop of all time and it starred @AlecBaldwin.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 16 Oct 2018
If "Day Without Women" abortion protest is so big, why is my beautiful wife... Wait, where's Melania? Protests should really stop.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 25 Jan 2019
Transit strikes in 20 cities? Really bad idea folks. Bannon's so angry he's muttering in German. Revolution should stop.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 2 Feb 2019
The mandatory curfew is going to be so great. Everybody be safe at home while Oath Keepers round up communists and jihadists!

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 3 Feb 2019
@AlecBaldwin No I'm not the worst president ever. Millard Fillmore oversaw collapse of Whig Party. Almost as big a disaster as Rock of Ages.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 6 Feb 2019
Failing rebels are lying again. I'm still in charge. General Flynn just flew me to Trump Resort in Guam because I was working too hard.

Emergency Law #1: All strikes, demonstrations and disrespectful orange comb-over wigs are banned until the insurgency is destroyed.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 9 Feb 2019
Don't blame me for the failed military coup. I don't back projects that aren't winners. Unlike certain actors I can name.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 5 Apr 2021
I'm very sorry for the suffering I caused. I hope to one day participate in the better society arising from the ashes of my disastrous rule.

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump | 6 Apr 2021
My account was hacked yesterday. Total chaos since Twitter was nationalized by the people. They should apologize to me right away!
