At the end of the research, several findings, contents and conclusions have been found. The time scope of the research included President Trump's tweets posted on his personal Twitter account (@realDonaldTrump) in both Arabic and English from June 16, 2015 to July 30, 2019. President Trump's tweets have clearly influenced U.S. foreign policy in terms of abandoning his country's commitment to the Iranian nuclear deal, imposing sanctions on Iran, issuing a decision to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, and succeeding in concluding a civil and military trade deal with Saudi Arabia
