Update: Since Twitter has banned President Donald Trump ’s account on Friday, January 8, National File has painstakingly reproduced this article using screenshots of the previously embedded tweets. This article is the only known place to find this compendium of tweets following Twitter’s decision to ban the President. President Donald J. Trump has posted more than 47,000 tweets since he joined Twitter in 2009.
Though the President’s Twitter game has slowed down considerably since the days of McDonald’s-fueled frenetic late-night Twitter binges on the 2016 campaign trail, his ability to condense amusing quips and anecdotes into 140 characters or fewer has left the internet with a veritable treasure trove of platinum-tier sh×tposts. National File set out to assemble a compendium of the best and most relevant tweets of the decade, without using a restrictive “top 10” numbered format.
During a speech in Pittsburgh yesterday, October 23, President Trump said, “We're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. The Pennsylvania crowd cheered these assertions, while social media snarks experienced the equivalent of thumb orgasms.

A clip from arrest at the psalm sing is also used in a video from California megachurch pastor John MacArthur as an example of what he calls “leftists and secular government officials” using “COVID-19 as an excuse to shut us done.” In the Idaho case, Gabriel French, a candidate for Latah County Commission, was arrested at a “psalm sing” promoted by Christ Church, a local congregation run by controversial pastor Doug Wilson, according to the Moscow-Pullman Daily News.
“You guys should not be doing this, and doing this kind of crap for the mayor,” French can be heard telling his arresting officers, who both had on masks. According to the Daily News, the church usually holds an outdoor singing event at a local park but moved it to City Hall in September.
“We wanted to make a statement we’re ready to head back to normal,” Ben Zones, a Christ Church pastor who organized the event, told the Daily News. Pastor Douglas Wilson, center, speaks before Communion as Christ Church meets in the Logos School gymnasium on Oct. 13, 2019, in Moscow, Idaho.
The church plans to hold another event on Wednesday at Friendship Park in Moscow, according to Wilson’s blog. “But be assured that we do have a plan in place that will help us avoid any confrontations or clashes with them, and that should also enable us to sing without any trouble,” he wrote.
“Given the significant increase in daily confirmed COVID-19 cases in the area, concerns for public and officer safety, and the desire to prevent increased opportunities for community spread, it is strongly recommended that the public stay clear of the area until the end of the advertised gathering,” the city said in a press release. Wilson has long claimed his church plans a “spiritual takeover of Moscow,” a progressive blue enclave within a red state.
