President Trump has furiously hit out at Twitter for covering his tweet, which said, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” with a warning that said he was “glorifying violence.”
Trump wrote, 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!”
People are protesting in Minneapolis after George Floyd died in police custody after a police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for eight minutes whilst arresting him.
Four police officers were sacked, but protestors are saying that murder charges should be sought.
Trump warned “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” and the National Guard have been ordered to “get the job done right” if Minneapolis, Minnesota was not “brought under control.”
Trump described the protestors as “thugs” and said the situation is “dishonouring the memory” of Floyd who was just 46-years old.
Trump tweeted at 1 am, “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.”
He added, “These THUGS are dishonouring 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!”
