Twitter Marked Trump’s Post about Events in Minneapolis as “Glorifying Violence”
OREANDA-NEWS. The social network Twitter marked US President Donald Trump’s message related to the protests in the city of Minneapolis as “glorifying violence.” At the same time, it was decided not to block it, because the tweet “may be in the public’s interest”.
In a post that provoked disapproval of Twitter, the politician wrote that the bandits insulted George Floyd’s memory and he would not allow it. Floyd is an Afro-American who was detained on suspicion of using false documents. The detention was recorded on video, and the footage shows that a policeman put a knee on Floyd’s neck. A few hours later he died in the hospital. This led to mass protests in the city.“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.” Trump wrote in the disputable publication. He also added that he would send fighters of the National Guard to Minneapolis if the local authorities do not take control of the situation.
