Donald Trump's most outrageous tweets

The US President's posts are being preserved for posterity. Here are some of his messages that set Twitter alight

The White House has agreed to preserve a record of Donald Trump's tweets after a request from the US National Archives and Records Administration.

But fellow Republicans have also come under attack:

Nor are his tweets confined to matters State-side. Trump, the owner of a number of acres of real estate in Scotland, has a keen interest in the land of his ancestors:

His views on women were to play a key role in the election campaign:

Following his election success, Trump made sure to continue his unique brand of political rhetoric:

No one is safe from his Twitter takes:

And the accusations go far and wide:
