Twitter Pulls Trump Campaign Video of President Showing Empathy For Peaceful Protesters They are fighting hard for the Radical Left Democrats.

The back-and-forth between the social media CEO and the president comes a day after Twitter removed a video tribute to George Floyd posted by Trump’s reelection campaign.

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.

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 left-wing groups” over images of riots and looting.

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.”.

The president’s statement was widely interpreted as threatening those protesting Floyd’s death, and was sharply criticized by several Democratic senators, among others. »
