Synopsis of President Trump’s Tweets

  • May 25: [Video | Memorial Day Remarks]
  • May 25: “Great reviews on our handling of Covid 19, sometimes referred to as the China Virus. Ventilators, Testing, Medical Supply Distribution, we made a lot of Governors look very good – And got no credit for so doing. Most importantly, we helped a lot of great people!”
  • May 25: “Nobody in 50 years has been WEAKER on China than Sleepy Joe Biden. He was asleep at the wheel. He gave them EVERYTHING they wanted, including rip-off Trade Deals. I am getting it all back!”
  • May 25: “Sleepy Joe Biden (mostly his reps.) went crazy when I banned, in late January, people coming in from China. He called me “xenophobic” & then went equally “nuts” when we let in 44,000 people – until he was told they were American citizens coming home. He later apologized!”
  • May 25: “Sean Parnell is an American Hero. Connor Lamm has proven to be an American fraud, and a puppet for Crazy Nancy Pelosi. He said he would NOT vote for her for Speaker, and did. Will kill 2A. Voted to impeach (on nothing).  A TOTAL & COMPLETE Sean Parnell Endorsement!”  Retweet:  Sean Parnell @SeanParnellUSA · May 23 · In 2006 I was wounded in Afghanistan.  I was medically retired from the Army in 2010 & left the military with next to nothing. I was in rough shape.  10 yrs later the President of the United States is giving me shoutouts.  Democrat or Republican this is damn cool!  God Bless America!…
  • May 25: “I have zero interest in moving the Republican National Convention to Doral in Miami, as falsely reported by the Fake News @nytimes in order to stir up trouble. Ballroom is not nearly big enough & would like to stay in N.C., whose gov. doesn’t even know if he can let people in?”  Retweet:  April @speakout_april · 11h · Don’t fall for it. RNC already discussing downscaling the “Republican National Convention”. Trump’s just setting the stage to blame NC. As @maggieNYT reports Trump has expressed interest at having the convention at a Doral ballroom. Not quite “full capacity” is it? #ScamArtist
  • May 25: [Video | Arlington National Cemetery – Memorial Day 2020]
  • May 25: “Some stories about the fact that in order to get outside and perhaps, even a little exercise, I played golf over the weekend. The Fake & Totally Corrupt News makes it sound like a mortal sin – I knew this would happen! What they don’t say is that it was my first golf in almost…”
  • May 25: “….3 months and, if I waited 3 years, they would do their usual “hit” pieces anyway. They are sick with hatred and dishonesty. They are truly deranged! They don’t mention Sleepy Joe’s poor work ethic,  or all of the time Obama spent on the golf course, often flying to….”
  • May 25: “….Hawaii in a big, fully loaded 747, to play. What did that do to the so-called Carbon Footprint? He also played moments after the brutal killing by ISIS of a wonderful young man. Totally inappropriate – and it was me who shattered 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. I was left a MESS!”
  • May 25:

  • May 25: “TRANSITION TO GREATNESS! Get ready, it is already happening again!”
  • May 25: “I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August. Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed…”
  • May 25: “…full attendance in the Arena. In other words, we would be spending  millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space. Plans are being….”
  • May 25: “…made by many thousands of enthusiastic Republicans, and others, to head to beautiful North Carolina in August. They must be immediately given an answer by the Governor as to whether or not the space will be allowed to be fully occupied. If not, we will be reluctantly forced…”
  • May 25: “…to find, with all of the jobs and economic development it brings, another Republican National Convention site. This is not something I want to do. Thank you, and I LOVE the people of North Carolina!”

  • May 24: “…vacationing, relaxing & making shady deals with other countries, & that Barack was always playing golf, doing much of his traveling in a fume spewing 747 to play golf in Hawaii – Once even teeing off immediately after announcing the gruesome death of a great young man by ISIS!”
  • May 24: “The Democrats are trying to Rig the 2020 Election, plain and simple!”  Retweet:  Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump · May 24 · The United States cannot have all Mail In Ballots.

  • May 24: “Cases, numbers and deaths are going down all over the Country!”
  • May 24: “A lot of interest in this story about Psycho Joe Scarborough. So a young marathon runner just happened to faint in his office, hit her head on his desk, & die?

Read story!”  Retweet:  Thomas Paine @Thomas1774Paine · May 23 · Replying to @realDonaldTrump Evidence Shows Foul Play Likely in Scarborough Aide’s Suspicious Death in His Congressional Office
