Donald Trump Attack List

Donald Trump has a reputation of someone who likes to attack people publicly.  He claims to only attack others when they "cast the first stone."  I intend to fully investigate that claim.

I found a list of people Trump has attacked on Twitter (with links to the tweets used to compile the list).  I took a look at the 112 people mentioned and broke it down.

A quick glance shows that Trump favors to attack men.  Women only account for 25.89% of those Trump has targeted.

Interestingly, 55.35% of the attacks are directed at journalists and people in the news media.  Another 33 03% of the attacks are directed at current/former establishment politicians.  The question begs to differ:  Is this the reason for his success on the campaign or is it the source of his infamy?  I'll let my readers decide.

Here's a summary of the basic info I uncovered using the article:

  • 29 women
  • 83 men
  • 5 Celebrities
  • 6 Citizens
  • 2 Foreign
  • 37 Politicians
  • 62 News Media



The list from the NY Times can be found here:  http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/01/28/upshot/donald-trump-twitter-insults.html?_r=0

This list is by no means complete. Over time, I will go through and investigate each claim made to determine who cast the first stone.  As I publish posts on these, I will come back to this list and create hyperlinks so it will be easy to navigate.
