Twitter hides Trump tweet for 'glorifying violence'

SAN FRANCISCO - Twitter has hidden a tweet by President Donald Trump from his profile, saying it violates rules about glorifying violence. It did the same hours later when the official White House account tweeted a copy of the president's words. Instead of being deleted, both tweets can be viewed by clicking on a prominent warning.

Trump was tweeting about the US city of Minneapolis, which has seen consecutive…

White House doubles down on Trump's tweet that Twitter said glorified violence

The White House is doubling down on a tweet from President Trump even after the platform determined it violated its rules against glorifying violence. The official White House Twitter account on Friday morning re-upped a late night tweet from Trump that was slapped with a warning label because it violated Twitter's rules. Trump had weighed in on the protests in Minneapolis over the police killing of George Floyd by writing that "these THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd" and that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." The tweet is now accompanied by a label saying it "violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence," and users have to click the label to see the tweet. But then on Friday, the White House Twitter account just re-posted the exact same tweet, quoting it to make the message visible without the label. Within about an hour, Twitter added the warning label to the White House's tweet as well. “These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen.…

Trump's social media executive order could force social media to censor Trump

There are a lot of legal, ethical, political, and constitutional questions about the executive order President Trump signed Thursday purporting to "defend free speech" by regulating social media companies. But there's also a practical one: Is Trump shooting himself in the foot? Trump's executive order targets Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, a foundational internet law that shields websites like social media companies from liability for most things users post to their sites. If Trump is successful, Twitter, Google, and Facebook "could face legal jeopardy if they allowed false and defamatory posts," Peter Baker and Daisuke Wakabayashi explain at The New York Times. "Without a liability shield, they presumably would have to be more aggressive about policing messages that press the boundaries — like the president's." "Ironically, Donald Trump is a big beneficiary of Section 230," said Kate Ruane at the American Civil Liberties Union. "If platforms were not immune under the law, then they would…

Trump attempts to clarify looting tweet, leaves Rose Garden event without addressing Minneapolis

President Trump on Friday attempted to clean up his recent comments about the protests in Minneapolis that Twitter said violated its rules but surprisingly left a subsequent event without addressing the situation at all. Trump in a late-night tweet commented on the protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd, saying he may have the National Guard "assume control" and writing, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts," a message that Twitter attached a warning label to saying it violated its rules against glorifying violence. On Friday afternoon, Trump claimed that he meant to say that "looting leads to shooting" but that "I don't want this to happen," confusingly adding that this was "spoken as a fact, not as a statement." 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.... — Donald J. Trump…

Chauvin was fired as a Minneapolis police officer after he held Floyd down as Floyd protested "I can't breathe." Protests have since broken out around the 3rd Minneapolis Police Precinct — which is just a block away from the El Nuevo Rodeo restaurant and dance club where Chauvin and Floyd once worked security. Maya Santamaria, who sold El Nuevo Rodeo a few months ago, tells Minneapolis ABC affiliate KSTP that Chauvin "was our off-duty police for almost the entirety of the 17 years that we were open." Floyd also worked at the club for around a year, but as a bouncer, Santamaria said.

Obama's comment referenced other recent high-profile instances of brutality and racism this year, including the shooting of 25-year-old jogger Ahmaud Arbery by white residents of southern Georgia in February, and Christian Cooper, who this week recorded a viral video of a white woman in Central Park calling the police on him after…

Taylor Swift Slams Trump For Stoking Racism, Threatening Violence: “We Will Vote You Out”

Riots have been raging throughout Minneapolis and across America demanding the arrest of the police officer who killed an unarmed black man named George Floyd by kneeling on his neck. President Donald Trump condemned the rioters this morning with a threat of retaliatory violence: "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!" Twitter ruled that Trump's tweet violated its policies by glorifying violence, and many other voices are speaking out against the president's statement today. That list includes Taylor Swift, the formerly apolitical pop star who in recent years has come out in support of Democratic candidates and policies and strongly critiqued Trump. In one interview she promised to "do everything I can for 2020," a sentiment she doubled down on in a

Ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin charged with 3rd-degree murder and manslaughter for killing of George Floyd

Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was arrested in connection with the death of George Floyd, has now been charged with murder. Prosecutors on Friday announced that Chauvin, who was fired after he was filmed kneeling on Floyd's neck for almost 10 minutes while Floyd said that he couldn't breathe, has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. The charges were unveiled shortly after Chauvin's arrest was announced and four days after Floyd's death, which has sparked nationwide outrage and protests. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman in a press conference said this is "by far the fastest we've ever charged a police officer." "We can only charge a case when he have sufficient, admissible evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt," he said. "As of right now, we have that." An investigation into the other officers involved in the incident is ongoing, Freeman said, adding that "I anticipate charges." A complaint is being processed and will be released later today.

George Floyd's family demands revised first-degree murder charge for officer who used 'inherently dangerous' restraint

The family of George Floyd is demanding stronger charges for the former Minneapolis police officer arrested Friday in connection with Floyd's death. Derek Chauvin received third-degree murder and manslaughter charges, despite evidently ignoring police training that would have taught that restraining a person in such a way as he did Floyd is "inherently dangerous," according to the criminal complaint. "We want a first-degree murder charge," the family's statement said. "And we want to see the other [three] officers arrested. We call on authorities to revise the charges to reflect the true culpability of this officer." The disturbing complaint describes how Chauvin placed "his left knee in the area of Mr. Floyd's head and neck. Mr. Floyd said, 'I can't breathe' multiple times and repeatedly said 'Mama' and 'please' as well. The defendant [Chauvin] and the other two officers stayed in their positions." Floyd then stopped breathing or speaking. One of the officers checked his pulse and said "I couldn't find one,"…

They were soon released from custody. On Twitter, the Minnesota State Patrol weighed in on the incident, saying the reporters were released "once they were confirmed to be members of the media," implying that wasn't previously clear — even though the video shows Jimenez identified himself as a CNN reporter who was broadcasting live on the network and showed his CNN badge.

President Donald Trump has said the US will be terminating its relationship with the World Health Organisation. The president said it had failed to adequately respond to coronavirus because China has "total control" over the global organisation. He said Chinese officials "ignored" their reporting obligations to the WHO and pressured the group to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered. He noted that the US contributes about 450 million US dollars (£360 million) to the world body while China provides about 40 million dollars (£32 million). The US is the largest source of financial support to the WHO and its exit is expected to significantly weaken the organisation. President Trump said the US would be "redirecting" the money to "other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs", without providing specifics. The news comes days after WHO announced their decision to temporarily halt trials of hydroxychloroquine as a potential coronavirus treatment, a drug Mr Trump had triumphed.
