(CNSNews.com) - The Tweeter-in-Chief is back in the USA, Air Force One landing in the Washington area shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday.

As the president flew in, the tweets flew out, including Mr. Trump's political picks and pans:

"My political representatives didn’t want me to get involved in the Mark Sanford primary thinking that Sanford would easily win - but with a few hours left I felt that Katie was such a good candidate, and Sanford was so bad, I had to give it a shot. Congrats to Katie Arrington!," Trump tweeted.

Arrington, a staunch Trump supporter, defeated never-Trumpist Rep. Mark Sanford in South Carolina's Republican primary. Arrington is a conservative state lawmaker, and she received the following plug from Trump on Tuesday:

"Mark Sanford has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to MAGA," Trump tweeted on Election Day. "He is MIA and nothing but trouble. He is better off in Argentina. I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love. She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!"

Trump on Wednesday also congratulated conservative Republican Corey Stewart "for his great victory for Senator from Virginia." Stewart -- described as a "bombastic conservative" by CNN early Wednesday -- will run against Democrat Sen. Tim Kaine in November. Kaine was Hillary Clinton's running mate.

Trump tweeted that Corey Stewart will now run "against a total stiff, Tim Kaine, who is weak on crime and borders, and wants to raise your taxes through the roof. Don’t underestimate Corey, a major chance of winning!"

Trump also tweeted on two other topics, blasting actor Robert De Niro as "a very Low IQ individual (who) has received too many shots to the head by real boxers in movies. I watched him last night and truly believe he may be “punch-drunk.” I guess he doesn’t realize the economy is the best it’s ever been with employment being at an all time high, and many companies pouring back into our country. Wake up Punchy!"

De Niro was applauded at the Tony Awards Monday night when he twice told the crowd, "F*** Trump."

And finally, Trump tweeted on Wednesday about his meeting with Kim Jong Un: "Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!"
