After more than 57,000 posts spanning more than a decade, Donald Trump’s personal Twitter feed is no more.
The social media giant finally pulled the plug on @realDonaldTrump over concerns he would use it for “further incitement of violence”.
It started on 4 May, 2009, with a tweet promoting his upcoming appearance on the David Letterman show.
It ended with a series of final posts praising a pro-Trump mob that ransacked Congress along with unfounded claims that the presidential election had been stolen.
A prolific user of the platform, even before becoming president in 2016, Mr Trump’s controversial tweets – sometimes posted well past midnight and before dawn – regularly hit the headlines.
Enabling him to bypass the traditional media and communicate directly to a wider audience, Mr Trump used it to spread false claims, settle scores with adversaries and even sack people.
Here is a selection of his most memorable/infamous posts both before he became president and after.
September 2012 – Disputing topless pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge on her honeymoon were an invasion of privacy
Who wouldn’t take Kate’s picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing. Come on Kate!
October 2012 – Offering relationship advice to Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and her then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson after she had an affair
Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.
November 2012 – Arguing China made up global warming
The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive.
May 2013 – Boasting of his intelligence
Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest – and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault
Another one from that month… sparking controversy with his view on sexual assaults in the military
26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?
December 2013 – Perpetuating the false theory that Barack Obama was not an American citizen despite the then US president producing his birth certificate as proof
How amazing, the State Health Director who verified copies of Obama’s “birth certificate” died in plane crash today. All others lived
May 2014 – Claiming wind turbines kill American bald eagles
Obama’s wind turbines kill “13-39 million birds and bats every year!” https://t.co/33vZUrkKu2 Save our bald eagles, symbol of our nation!
September 2016 – Sending Mexico the bill for building a wall on the southern border
Mexico will pay for the wall!
January 2018 – Warning Kim Jong Un that he had a nuclear button which was “much bigger” than that of the North Korean leader, who he also dubbed “rocket man”
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
March 2018 – Winning in a fight with Joe Biden
Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!
Later that month… hitting out at the Oscars in 2018 where he faced criticism at the ceremony
Lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY. Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore – except your President (just kidding, of course)!
And another… firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson by tweet
Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all.
October 2018 – Calling Stormy Daniels a “horseface” and a “total con” over claims she had an affair with him
“Federal Judge throws out Stormy Danials lawsuit versus Trump. Trump is entitled to full legal fees.” @FoxNews Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas. She will confirm the letter she signed! She knows nothing about me, a total con!
July 2019 – Telling four congresswomen of colour to “go home” despite them all being US citizens and only one not born in America
So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly….and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!
May 2020 – Lashing out at the “lamestream media” and their “fake news”
The Lamestream Media is doing everything within their power to foment hatred and anarchy. As long as everybody understands what they are doing, that they are FAKE NEWS and truly bad people with a sick agenda, we can easily work through them to GREATNESS!
October 2020 – Announcing he and the first lady had contracted coronavirus was the most popular tweet, gaining 1.8 million likes and nearly 400,000 retweets
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
Then he accused the media of inflaming the threat posed by COVID-19
October 2020 – Covid, Covid, Covid is the unified chant of the Fake News Lamestream Media. They will talk about nothing else until November 4th., when the Election will be (hopefully!) over. Then the talk will be how low the death rate is, plenty of hospital rooms, & many tests of young people.

November 2020 – Claiming the election he lost had been “stolen”
We believe these people are thieves. The big city machines are corrupt. This was a stolen election. Best pollster in Britain write this morning that this clearly was a stolen election, that it’s impossible to imagine that Biden outran Obama in some of these states.
December 2020 – Claiming he won the election when he didn’t win the election
Great. Most corrupt election in history, by far. We won!!!
January 2021 – Condoning the deadly assault by his supporters on the US Capitol
These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever.
