Trump’s Favorite Tweets

by

Donald Trump has shown he has no rivals using Twitter, a technique that he has mastered and that serves him to attack enemies, deflect attention and settle personal scores. Trump takes Twitter seriously. He gets up early in the morning and starts tweeting. To his credit, some of his tweets are sometimes retweeted millions of times, making of this an extremely powerful weapon of war for him, one that reveals the intricacies of his complex mind.

“In 140 characters, he [Donald Trump] can change the direction of a Fortuna 100 company, he can notify world leaders and he can also notify government agencies that business as usual is over,” said Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager.

Not everybody takes lightly Trump’s tweets. Chinese state-run media criticized Trump’s “Twitter foreign policy” that it considers “child’s play,” and foreign governments follow his tweets with increasing attention and concern. Unfazed, Trump claims that many people congratulate him on being “the Ernest Hemingway of Twitter” a statement that probably wouldn’t amuse Hemingway if he were alive.

What follows are some personal interpretations of Trump’s Twitter talent.

Bad actress. Getting fat. Get a life.
