Donald Trump’s Most Memorable Tweets of 2017

By Alex Lefkowitz (Online Editor in Chief)

This year, our President has constantly been in the news for the use of his twitter account. Here are the most memorable from this year.

  1. Time Magazine – Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!
  • This tweet ranks in at number ten as it spurred a large reaction amongst the American population. Being recognized as Time Person of the Year is one of the most prestigious individual honors, but Trump wanted no part in receiving this honor as it was not a 100% lock that he would win.
  1. Witch Hunt – This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!
  • Who can forget this one. After numerous accusations of Trump’s relationship with Russia and its involvement in the election, Trump called out the Democrat’s saying it was the biggest attempt to remove a politician from office in history.
  1. Michael Flynn – I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!
  • Although this tweet is subject to recency bias, this tweet will be one of his most memorable throughout his stay in office as it talks about his firing of Flynn and how he may have proven he obstructed justice.
  1. Dem’s blaming Russia – After 1 year of investigation with Zero evidence being found, Chuck Schumer just stated that “Democrats should blame ourselves,not Russia.”
  • After months of Democrats not accepting the results of the election, Trump brings light on Schumer finally acknowledging that it was not Russia that led to Hillary’s loss, but rather the democratic party.
  1. Health Care Stuff- Obamacare is a disaster – as I’ve been saying from the beginning. Time to repeal & replace!
  • One of the main points on Trump’s agenda is the repeal and replace of Obamacare, so it comes as no surprise that he has often tweeted this sentiment.
  1. Puerto Rico Mayor- such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help.
  • Here we go, the top five. This very controversial tweet came after Hurricane Maria destroyed the island of Puerto Rico. After Trump said he would give the US territory all the aid it needed, Trump bashed the San Juan mayor for allegedly not helping the city through the crisis.
  1. Clothes-Line CNN GIF
  • Legendary tweet. Everybody knows CNN does not like Trump and Trump does not like CNN. To add more lighter fluid to the fire, Trump tweeted his iconic WWE clothesline with the CNN logo cropped on a wrestlers face.
  1. NFL – At least 24 players kneeling this weekend at NFL stadiums that are now having a very hard time filling up. The American public is fed up with the disrespect the NFL is paying to our Country, our Flag and our National Anthem. Weak and out of control!
  • Trump vs the NFL has been a main talking point over the past few months, and this tweet just emphasized his disgust towards the players that kneeled and his opinion that it disrespects the country.
  1. Lavar Ball Ungrateful – LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It’s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!
  • At number two comes Trump’s tweet to Lavar Ball, right after the UCLA players were released from China, and Lavar Ball said he would not thank Trump for what he did. Trump’s response was timely in the fact that he mentioned spending thanksgiving in China had Trump not helped the players.
  1. Kim Jong Un Short and Fat- 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!
  • Now at number one. Amid all the tension between the United States and North Korea, Trump calls out Kim Jong Un for being short and fat, but says he would never say it. Trump also says he tried to become his friend, but Rocket Man turned him down.
