By electing a decidedly non-career politician, we knew things would be . . . different. But is this any way to run a country? We can learn so much more about America’s president via what he himself says—in 140 characters or less. Donald Trump has tweeted nearly 35,000 times since March 2009. As President, Trump tweets without ceasing, sometimes a dozen times a day. But while it’s one thing to be a maverick businessman, it’s quite another when the leader of the most powerful country in the world is talking politics as stream of consciousness.
Many are troubled by Trump’s brash behavior, egotism, and disinterest in diplomacy and compromise. Often that fear arises from reading what Trump himself writes. All I Ever Wanted to Know about Donald Trump I Learned from His Tweets provides a unique look into what makes Trump tick . . . and what ticks him off. All of his tweets have been read, collected, and organized here so readers will know Trump’s opinions on everything from China, Putin, immigration, global warming, enemies who are now friends, and more. More importantly, his tweets demonstrate how he handles adversity and those who resist his efforts to make change. How and why have his opinions changed over the years, and what do these changing messages say about him? Noted
