Long before descending Trump Tower’s golden escalator in June of last year, Donald Trump was a prolific twitterer.
The GOP nominee for president joined Twitter in March 2009, turning his account into one of the centerpieces of his campaign.
TheWrap scoured his Tweets to see what was he like before he ran for president.
These are among Trump’s meanest, craziest and ickiest tweets we could find.
Trump’s first tweet was, interestingly enough, pretty innocuous, plugging an upcoming appearance on “Late Night” with then-host David Letterman.
Be sure to tune in and watch Donald Trump on Late Night with David Letterman as he presents the Top Ten List tonight!

Argued rape is just what happens when you mix men and women in the military …
26,000 unreported sexual assults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?

Launched the popular birther movement …
An 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @BarackObama's birth certificate is a fraud.
