Each tweet is a window into the context of our times, and the mind of Donald J. Trump. In chronological order, they take us on a journey into some of the most important stories, events and issues of the modern world – an election result that polarised a country, the first ever meeting of a US president with a North Korean leader, the Black Lives Matter Movement and the COVID-19 pandemic.
