White House Reposts Trump’s “Shoot Them” Tweet

CBS News reports:

President Trump on Friday called protesters in Minneapolis “thugs” and vowed that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” He tweeted after protesters outraged by the death of a black man in police custody torched a police station. The tweet was quickly flagged by Twitter as “glorifying violence.”

Twitter quickly tagged the post, saying, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.” It still is. On Friday morning, the White House Twitter account retweeted it.
