Happy birthday, covfefe: Remembering some of Trump’s craziest tweets
Trump uses Twitter as his primary mode of communication with the world, delivering policy positions and bestowing catchy nicknames on his enemies.
Most Americans think the president tweets too much - 72 percent, according to the new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, while 62 percent think his tweeting is "a bad thing."
Though his original “Despite the constant negative press covfefe" tweet was deleted, Trump left a follow-up message about the term that remains a mystery to this day.
Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe" ??? Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
Trump has spent much of his presidency tweeting denials of “collusion” with Russia and accusing Democrats of the same. Over the last year, Trump has lashed out at the Democrats countless times.
Why aren’t the 13 Angry and heavily conflicted Democrats investigating the totally Crooked Campaign of totally Crooked Hillary Clinton. It’s a Rigged Witch Hunt, that’s why! Ask them if they enjoyed her after election celebration!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2018
One of his biggest bombshell tweets was when he revealed Obama had his “wires tapped.”
Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 4, 2017
Trump has made some of his most memorable tweets about North Korean leader Kim Jong-un - from deriding his appearance to boasting about how his “button” is bigger than Kim’s.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2017
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.

Another favorite target for Trump is the media. From calling out multiple “fake news” outlets to slamming ratings, when it comes to the media, Trump is rarely kind.
Sometimes this criticism gets personal. Trump came under fire for a series of tweets attacking the appearance of MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski, alleging she had both a low IQ and a botched face lift.
I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
The president has more than 52.2 million Twitter followers and has tweeted more than 37,700 times since opening his account in March 2009.
