Twitter removes White House tweet & posts warning
« on: May 29, 2020, 05:01:29 PM »

Friday Twitter literally deleted a White House Tweet and placed this warning on their Twitter:

The original tweet is below.

Twitter claimed Trump’s account threatened violence against looters in Minneapolis. I think he was threatening them with accountability. You don’t get to destroy a city without consequences. The last time we checked arson theft, and vandalism are crimes.

Trump tweeted early Friday morning about the protests in Minneapolis over the police killing of George Floyd, saying, “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen.”

“Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” he added. “Thank you!”

Twitter placed a warning on that post noting that it violated the platform’s policies on “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.”
