The Most Infamous Tweets:

The continuous publication of tweets by the president expressing his personal opinions have left an ocean of eye-catching messages.

On a daily basis, the media criticize the press secretary and administration officials about Trump’s words on Twitter, because, although it is his personal account, Trump is the president of the United States.

And its messages are still the positions of a head of state. These are some of the tweets that have raised the most controversy among public opinion:

Electoral fraud … without evidence:

On November 27, 2016, Trump blamed without evidence that “millions of people” voted “illegally” for Hillary Clinton.

Trump won the Electoral College and therefore the White House, but the Republican candidate had an advantage in the popular vote by almost three million votes.

“In addition to winning in the Electoral College with a great difference, I won the popular vote if they deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.”

Beating The CNN Logo:

On July 2, 2017, the president’s personal Twitter account (With 33 million followers) shared a 28-second video of a WWE wrestling broadcast. The video was edited to show Trump hitting a man with a CNN logo on his face.

A short time later, the presidential account @POTUS retweeted Trump’s tweet to its 19 million followers at the time.

In a statement, CNN admitted  it was “a sad day when the president of the United States encourages violence against reporters.”

The tweet was widely criticized. Several press freedom groups condemned the disclosure, such as the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, as well as media representatives, such as Sean Baquet, executive editor of The New York Times.

Trump does not take into account the difference between weather and climate:

On December 28, 2017, after a third consecutive day of golf at its Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, and with a temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, Trump tweeted:

“In the East, it could be COLD New Year’s Eve. Maybe we could use a little of that good and old (concept of) global warming by which our country, but not in other countries, was going to pay BILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect itself. Open up! “

Trump Twitter Tweets

The “logic” here is simple: how can climate change, also known as global warming, be real if it is so cold outside? What Trump does not take into account in his tweet is that “climate” and “weather” are not the same.

The NASA explains: “weather is what states of the atmosphere are over a short period, and climate is how the atmosphere behaves over relatively long periods.”

It is cold on any day of the week, or the month it is not indicative of much about the weather and climate it is warming or not. If the logic “climate = weather” made sense, after a series of suffocating summer days it could be reasonably concluded as undeniable evidence that the planet is warming.

The press is the “biggest enemy” of the United States:

Hours after returning from a trip in which he lavished praise on Kim Jon Un on June 13, 2018, Trump declared that the United States’ greatest enemy is… “False news.” He mentioned NBC and CNN in his tweet.

Trump frequently calls the media as his enemies. The tweet of June 13 goes back to February of 2017 when he called several media outlets “the enemy of the American people!”

Since then he has used that figure of “enemy of the people” to refer to the press in at least 12 tweets.

CNN reporters have repeatedly asked the White House about these references, and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders says that Trump does not refer to the entire press, but to the media that publish “fake news” or false news.

On August 2, Sanders refused to say that the media are not the enemy of the people and said that the president’s position was “completely understandable” in light of the “press attacks” against him.

On October 29, Sanders said he did not have to speculate, but criticized CNN for pointing out – Sanders said – Trump speech as a factor in the case of the bomb packages sent against Democratic politicians that month.

Witch hunt:

“Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of foolishness and stupidity in the USA. And now, the rigged witch hunt! “, Trump tweeted on July 15, 2016.

He published it a few hours before meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. That is, Trump seemed to defend Putin’s government in the case of Russian opposition shortly before sitting with the president.

Trump suggests that the reason the United States and Russia have an opponent relationship is that of special prosecutor Robert Mueller who investigates Russia’s interference in the 2016 elections.

The intelligence community, unanimously, has concluded that Russia actively intervened in the 2016 elections to help Trump and affect the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is chaired by Republican Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina, concluded the same earlier this summer.

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller accused a dozen Russians of their roles in what the statement made clear that it was a broad and deep operation to influence the US presidential election.

Russia has also been criticized in the international community for the alleged poisoning of Sergei Skripal by Russia and the occupation of Crimea.

He criticized Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was hired as a conductor of ‘Celebrity Apprentice.’

Wow, the ratings were released, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was” flooded “(or destroyed) compared to the rating machine, DJT. It’s not worth being … a movie star and that was season 1 compared to season 14. Now compare it to my season 1. But who cares, supported Kasich and Hillary, “he tweeted on January 6, 2017.”

Then in February, he said: “Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on The Apprentice … but at least he tried!”.

Schwarzenegger replied then that he expected him to work for the American people as aggressively as he worked for his ratings.

Donald Trump Twitter Tweets

Meryl Streep, one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but she attacked me last night at the Golden Globes. She is a lackey of Hillary (Clinton) who lost big. For the 100th time, I never made fun of a disabled reporter (I would never), but only showed “crawling” when he totally changed a 16-year-old story in order to make me look bad. More of the dishonest means. “

Streep responded in February of that year, at a Human Rights Campaign event,  saying in an ironic tone: “I am the most overrated and over-awarded actress of my generation.”

He also criticized Alec Baldwin, who imitates him on ‘Saturday Night Live’.

“Alec Baldwin, whose dying and mediocre career was saved by his terrible imitation of me in SNL, now says that interpreting me was an agony. Alec, it was an agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring Darrell Hammond back, more fun and a lot more talent! “, He tweeted on March 2, 2018.

Baldwin  responded on Twitter shortly after,  noting that he would like to continue playing the role when there is a political trial, a resignation speech and a farewell helicopter ride, “What we all hope for”. In addition, he asked Trump to tell his wife to stop asking for SNL tickets.
