President Trump tweets a lot.

With tens of millions of followers on Twitter, Trump proposes policy, shares his latest actions and reacts to the news. But 140 characters rarely gives the full context.

Here, we attempt to do just that for key tweets beginning on Jan. 20, when he officially took office.

This was the final time presidential candidates Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump will meet the same stage prior to the 2016 elections.

Johnson-Weld campaign

Former Massachusetts Governor William Weld laughed when asked about a Tweet sent out by longtime journalist Carl Bernstein on Friday that stated Weld “could be a hero — instead of Nader” if he dropped his own Libertarian candidacy and endorsed and campaigned for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In a phone interview Wednesday on First Coast Connect, Weld said the Bernstein Tweet and comments he received over the weekend felt like an organized effort to get him out of the race.
