Trump’s Presidency: All Tweets, No Action

Trump tweets an average of eight times per day, providing a unique window into what rants are on his mind at any given moment. His tweets portray a president whose time is spent picking petty personal fights and creating chaos instead of focusing on the many promises he made to working families.

Rather than tweet about actually doing something to lower drug prices, overhaul the nation’s infrastructure, increase wages, preserve Medicare and Social Security, and ensure coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, Trump’s daily tweet barrage is filled with nasty insults and racist diatribes.

It’s little wonder why he’s been completely ineffective at passing legislation to help working families. And to help showcase this stark contrast, we’ve built a tool to track Trump’s tweets in real-time:

This tool will keep a running tally of Trump’s tweets that touch on issues that are important to American families compared to the things that take up the most space on his timeline like screaming “fake news” or lambasting various investigations involving Trump himself, his Administration, his family, or his friends. These word counts will be updated daily and will feature different comparisons related to topics that are top of mind in any given week.There is no distinction between “Trump” and “Trump’s Twitter” as many would argue. Trump’s tweets reflect Trump’s thinking, which show a complete lack of focus on the American people and America’s interests.

As Trump once tweeted about President Obama, Trump is “totally lost, ineffective, desperate.”
