    Take a look at twint. I found it to be a bit of a hassle to set up, but after that it works great. Used it for a small project just to test how it worked. It does not have rate limits unlike the Twitter API.

    twint -g="38.8935755,-77.0846155,50km" -s "Trump"

    I like to use Twint twint since it doesn’t have any tweet limits like the Twitter API does, and you can do it all in python which houses the NLTK module for text preprocessing, which is very nice. It’s also fairly quick and easy to use
