Donald Trump's noteworthy tweets as president

+-

President Donald Trump uses Twitter to break news, share his views and feud with critics and celebrities at all times of day or night. It can be hard to keep up — below are some of his noteworthy tweets since he was elected president.

They include his recent tweets about how his proposed border wall would protect against threats like the MS-13 gang, his change of view on China's currency and his praise of the U.S. military for its Syria missile attack.

The Trump administration declined to label China a currency manipulator on April 14, 2017, marking one of the sharpest major reversals of his presidency so far. Trump repeatedly called China a manipulator during his campaign and said he would take the action as soon as he took office. The North Korea issue is one reason he gave for the change, as seen in this April 16 tweet. He also told The Wall Street Journal that he'd decided that China hadn't recently been manipulating its currency recently after all.

Trump urged Michael Flynn to "ask for immunity" on March 31, 2017, the day after Flynn's lawyer said he is discussing getting immunity from the House and Senate intelligence committees in exchange for being questioned in their investigations of possible contacts between Trump's presidential campaign and Russia. Trump fired the national security adviser after Flynn misled Vice President Mike Pence about whether he discussed U.S. sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador during the transition.

Opposition from the Freedom Caucus, a group of hard-right House members, was key to the failure of the Republican health care bill. In his tweet on March 26, 2017, Trump also targeted two other influential conservative groups, the Club for Growth and The Heritage Foundation.

Trump tweeted this message on March 25, 2017, the morning after the first major legislative effort of his presidency -- a bill to replace the Affordable Care Act -- ended in failure because too many Republicans opposed it.

"We all learned a lot. We learned a lot about loyalty. We learned a lot about the vote-getting process. We learned a lot about some very arcane rules in obviously both the Senate and in the House," Trump said.

Trump's $1.1 trillion budget blueprint, released on March 16, 2017, would boost funding 10 percent for the Department of Defense and 6.8 percent for the Department of Homeland Security. It would make deep cuts to agencies including the Department of State -- which Trump wants to get 28.7 percent less funding -- and the Environmental Protection Agency, whose funding would be reduced by 31.4 percent. The blueprint is titled "America First." It's the first step in budget negotiations.

The 45th president visited the seventh president's Nashville home The Hermitage on March 15, 2017, to commemorate what would have been Andrew Jackson's 250th birthday. During his Nashville rally, Trump highlighted similarities between himself and Jackson -- another populist -- describing him as a fellow outsider who pledged to represent the forgotten worker and took on the Washington establishment. Trump called Jackson "one of our great presidents." Fun fact: He hung a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office after moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Trump responded on March 15, 2017, to a report the night before on MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" that broke news about his taxes in 2005. The pages from Trump's federal tax return were obtained by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston, a tax expert, and show that Trump earned $153 million and paid $36.5 million in income taxes in 2005, paying an effective tax rate of 24.5 percent. Johnston said he got the documents in the mail unsolicited. Trump never released his tax returns during the campaign.
