9 times Trump took on the world via Twitter
Trump’s twitter feed is literally one for the history books - a logbook of the time when one of the most powerful people on Earth got into shouting matches with his detractors for all the world to see.
To Hassan Rouhani - ‘DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH’
The latest attack by Twitter came on Sunday night, when Trump ‘screamed’ at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to refrain from threatening Washington or face "consequences the likes of which few have ever suffered before”.
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
To Kim Jong Un - ‘My Button works!’
One of Trump’s most memorable Twitter comebacks came in the form of a nuclear-button-measuring contest against North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 3, 2018
Trump had previously dubbed Kim a “little rocket man” in yet another Twitter rant, and threatened to rain “fire and fury like the world has never seen” upon Pyongyang.
To Jimmy Fallon - ‘Be a man’
Trump’s ire isn’t spared for world leaders, several celebrities have also felt his Twitter wrath. He told late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon to “be a man!” after he expressed regret for humanizing the then-presidential candidate during an 2016 interview in which Fallon ruffles Trump’s trademark hairdo. “He seriously messed up my hair,” claimed Trump.
.@jimmyfallon is now whimpering to all that he did the famous “hair show” with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have “humanized” me-he is taking heat. He called & said “monster ratings.” Be a man Jimmy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 25, 2018
To The Red Hen Restaurant - ‘Badly needs a paint job’
The president took on a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, after they refused to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The scathing tweet insulted the establishment’s paint job, canopies and overall “filthy” appearance.
The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 25, 2018
To Theresa May - ‘Don’t focus on me’
After British Prime Minister Theresa May said the US President was “wrong” for retweeting islamophobic messages by the far-right group Britain First, Trump took to Twitter to tell May to mind her own business. Trump had initially tagged the wrong Theresa May of course, but deleted and reposted the comment to his intended user.
.@Theresa_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 30, 2017
To Justin Trudeau - ‘Very dishonest and weak’
Trump publicly insulted the Canadian PM, calling him “dishonest”, “weak”, “meek and mild”, following a G7 meeting in Quebec last month. While flying home on Air Force One Trump abruptly retracted US support for a joint statement signed by every nation at the meeting and blasted Trudeau after learning of the PM’s intention to impose tariffs on the US.
PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 9, 2018
To the cast of Hamilton - ‘Very rude’
President Trump publicly criticized the cast of the “highly overrated” broadway musical ‘Hamilton’ for their treatment of the then future-Vice President Mike Pence in 2016. Trump claimed Pence was “harassed” by the cast at the theater in what should have been a “safe and special place”.
The cast and producers of Hamilton, which I hear is highly overrated, should immediately apologize to Mike Pence for their terrible behavior— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2016
The Theater must always be a safe and special place.The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2016
To Arnold Schwarzenegger - ‘Really bad job’
After the actor and former California governor quit his role as host of Trump’s former reality TV show, ‘The Apprentice’, the president said Schwarzenegger “did a really bad job” as governor “and even worse on the Apprentice”.
Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger did a really bad job as Governor of California and even worse on the Apprentice...but at least he tried hard!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2017
To Alec Baldwin - ‘Terrible impersonation’
Trump lambasted the actor and his “dying mediocre career” after Baldwin expressed his ‘agony’ at impersonating the president on Saturday Night Live. “Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch,” he wrote.
Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his terrible impersonation of me on SNL, now says playing me was agony. Alec, it was agony for those who were forced to watch. Bring back Darrell Hammond, funnier and a far greater talent!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 2, 2018
