This afternoon, Twitter removed a video tribute to George Floyd posted by President Trump’s reelection campaign, claiming it was in violation of copyrighted material.
The Hill – The Team Trump account tweeted out a nearly four-minute-long video that is narrated by a speech the president gave a few days after Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody.
Donald Trump Jr. called out Twitter for censoring his father’s amazing video tribute to George Floyd from the campaign “Team Trump” Twitter account:
The same speech the media refused to cover.

Watch the amazing video here:
In the video, the president can be heard lamenting the “grave tragedy” of Floyd’s death over images of Floyd and peaceful protesters mourning his death.
Later in the video, the president warns about “violence and anarchy” from “radical leftwing groups” over images of riots and looting. He also describes the vast majority of law enforcement officials as “devoted public servants” as the video shows images of police officers hugging civilians and people cleaning up graffiti and garbage in the streets.
The Team Trump video was retweeted by Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr. before it was removed with a message that said: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”
