Twitter Goes After Trump, Calls Riot Tweet ‘Glorifying Violence’

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on May 29, 2020

Twitter is just one of many social media companies that has a tendency to censor speech from conservatives, and now they let us know no one is exempt from their censorship not even the President.

On Friday after the White House put up a tweet, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” Twitter removed the tweet saying that it violated it’s rules by glorifying violence.

The tweet from the White House was referring to the situation in Minneapolis about George Floyd.

President Trump had put out a tweet shortly before 1 am offering military support to Minneapolis if they should need it.

“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!”

While the White House’s Tweet was taken down, it can still be viewed after you read the warning from Twitter.

“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,”
– Statement from Twitter

The White House has argued that President Trump’s tweet was condemning violence and should not have been taken down.

President Trump did respond to Twitter saying that the social media company only targets Republicans.

“Twitter is doing nothing about all of the lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party. They have targeted Republicans, Conservatives & the President of the United States. Section 230 should be revoked by Congress. Until then, it will be regulated.”
– Tweet from President Trump

This is the second time in a week that Twitter has targeted tweets from the President. Earlier in the week two tweets were flagged regarding mail in voting saying that they were potentially misleading.

As a result of Twitter starting to censor President Trump he has signed an executive order on Thursday that any social media companies “that engage in censoring or any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield.”
