Looking back at Trump’s presidency through his tweets

In an interview in 2017, I asked former United States (US) President Barack Obama the following question: “America is famous for two Donalds – Donald Duck and Donald Trump. Which is more representative of your country?” Obama didn’t really answer so I’ll give you my opinion instead. Read on and judge whether yours is all that different from mine. I’ve spent weeks hoping Donald Trump would lose and now that it seems he has I’m going to miss him. I’m addicted to his tweets and utterances. Every one catches your attention and makes you wonder what sort of man he is. Google has a vast collection and I’ve selected a few in memory of someone who may have been exasperating, but was also often entertaining. Way back in 1998, this is what he said: “If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific.” Twenty-two years later he’s proved he was right. However, its Trump’s tweets about himself that are truly unforgettable. He has the gall to say things the rest of us would never express. Here’s a selection: ‘The beauty of me is that I’m very rich’; ‘I’m also honored to have the greatest temperament that anybody has’; ‘Nobody has better respect for intelligence than Donald Trump’; ‘My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well-documented, are various other parts of my body’; ‘I’m the most successful person ever to run for the presidency, by far. Nobody’s ever been more successful than me. I’m the most successful person ever to run.’
