After 3 days of violent riots, fires, looting, a takeover of the Minneapolis Police 3rd District, and copycat protests taking place in major cities across the United States, President Trump took to Twitter to let the feckless Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, and the violent rioters know he’s had enough.
“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!
Only moments after President Trump tweeted about the mishandling of the rioters by radical Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, and less than 24 hours after Trump’s Executive Order created to reign in censorship by tech giants, Twitter did something they have never done to a sitting President before—they added a warning label to one of his tweets. The label they attached to his tweet falsely warned users that his tweet “glorifies violence.”
President Trump clarified his tweet this morning with two more tweets explaining how Twitter misinterpreted his remarks:
Looting leads to shooting, and that’s why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night – or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot. I don’t want this to happen, and that’s what the expression put out last night means
It was spoken as a fact, not as a statement. It’s very simple, nobody should have any problem with this other than the haters, and those looking to cause trouble on social media. Honor the memory of George Floyd!
We asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey if they had any plans to remove their inflammatory & bogus warning from President Trump’s tweet?
Thank you, for clarifying. @jack, any plans to remove your inflammatory & bogus warning from @realDonaldTrump's tweet, now that you see one of your jack-booted censors got it wrong? 🤔 https://t.co/JAsOx50zDX

Donald Trump Jr. just tweeted a screenshot of a notification that was sent to the White House this afternoon from Twitter
Because they’re leftist hacks trying to manipulate an election… and they’re also full of crap. https://t.co/qCEwjepD4f

Here’s the screenshot of the message from Twitter to the White House, admitting their error in their efforts to silence and conrol the narrative of the President of The United States.
This is a very serious issue and every American should be concerned about how much power these tech giants have in crafting or reshaping the narrative.
