Less than 24 hours after President Donald J Trump signed an unprecedented executive order addressing social media companies censorship of Conservatives online, Twitter censored the president, again.
An official Twitter admin account then commented “We have placed a public interest notice on this Tweet from @realdonaltrump”. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey shared the post less than 30 minutes later.
Twitter responded, explaining their reasoning behind censoring the President of the United States claiming: “This Tweet violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today.” Twitter continued: “We’ve taken action in the interest of preventing others from being inspired to commit violent acts”
The post in question addressed rioters across the nation that have lawlessly destroyed counters businesses, committed shootings, kidnappings, stabbings, looting, ransacked a police station and set it on fire, and countless crimes within the span of a 48 hour period.
Donald Trump’s Tweet reads: “I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right…..
….These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”
This all comes after President Donald Trump took to Twitter mid Tuesday railing against the Democrat push for Mail-In Ballots claiming they will be “anything less than substantially fraudulent. Trump continued saying: “Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out & fraudulently signed.”
Soon after the president’s tweets were published, Twitter added a ‘fact check’ link below the president’s tweets. When clicking the ‘fact check’ link, you are sent to CNN as a source.
