On the same day that Twitter labeled one of President Donald Trump's tweets as violating their terms of service because - according to Twitter - it was "glorifying violence, Trump attempted to clarify the tweet in question with an explanation tweet.
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 (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
....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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
In his Twitter-offending tweet sent out in the early morning hours on Friday, Trump spoke of "dishonoring the memory of George Floyd." The president "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" comment about was either accidentally or intentionally misunderstood by Twitter .
....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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
The left is so out of their minds paranoid, to the point they sound like the tin foil hat brigade, that they take everything Trump says and twist it to make him seem like a tyrant. Either Twitter has an ax to grind with Trump after the president signed an executive order to prevent online censorship on Thursday, or they employ morons who actually think the president would tweet that authorities should shoot looters on sight.
