ANALYSIS: Trump’s tweets reveal his priorities

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

The story behind Trump’s 7,084 tweets

Trump has tweeted 7,084 times since taking office. Let’s take a look at what those tweets say about his priorities:

  • 510 mention his name
  • 424 mention “fake news”
  • 352 mention Russia
  • 1 mentions climate change (and it criticized taking action)
  • 0 mention the minimum wage or student debt

Trump has spent his time in office tweeting blatant lies and offensive slurs, giving tax cuts to the rich and powerful, and launching endless attacks on our health care. At the first Democratic debate tonight, we’ll hear bold progressive ideas to address the critical issues Trump has blatantly ignored.
