“After the completion of the preliminary investigation procedures, the judge decided to issue an arrest warrant for the outgoing President of the United States of America, Donald Trump,” read a statement released by the Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq on Thursday. Iran also has an arrest warrant out for Trump in relation to Soleimani's death, the semi-official Far's news agency reported Monday.
Tehran attorney general Ali Alias Meir claimed Trump would be prosecuted after his term ends, Far's reported. Last week, a large crowd gathered in Baghdad close to midnight (local time) for a memorial service at the site where the drone strike killed Soleimani and al-Muhandis a year ago.
It appears President Donald Trump will have to find a new preferred platform to share his views with the world. Hashtags for “TrumpBanned” and “Thank you, Twitter” quickly rose to the top of the social media site in the wake of the permanent suspension.
Hours after his suspension, Trump released a statement criticizing the ban, and teasing a possible new platform. They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely,” he added.
The POTUS account, rarely used by Trump himself over the past four years, will be transferred over to the Biden administration following his inauguration. The blog post from Twitter announcing the ban cited the events of Wednesday's raid on the U.S. Capitol as a reason for the suspension.
Trump's account had been temporarily suspended in the wake of the rioting, but warned the president another violation of its terms of service would result in a permanent ban. “In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action,” the company wrote.
Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.” The statement continued, “However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules entirely and cannot use Twitter to incite violence, among other things.
She wrote a letter to CEO Jack Dorsey in October 2019, citing a handful of tweets she said broke the platform's policy. ABC News Ben Littleton, Doreen Shah, Matthew Furman and Evan Curry contributed to this report.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Democrat leaders for the House of Representatives and Senate respectively, have demanded Mr Trump ’s immediate removal following the riots. Speaking in a press conference, Ms Pelosi blasted the President as a “dangerous man” and blamed him for the Capitol building riots.
The Representative leader then labelled Mr Trump as a “complete tool of Putin”, claiming he caused damage to American democracy. Also speaking in a press briefing the same day, Mr Schumer revealed he and Ms Pelosi had attempted to call the Vice President to invoke the amendment, but received no answer.
Congressmen David Bicolline of Rhode Island, Jamie Rankin of Maryland, and Ted Lieu of California have drafted documents charging Mr Trump for abuse of power for the second time. Congresswoman Than Omar of Minnesota is the lead sponsor of the effort to impeach Mr Trump, after she tweeted for his removal from office shortly after the protests.
DonaldTrumpnews : Ms Pelosi ABD Mr Schumer also threatened to impeach the President over the riots (Image: PA) Democrat Joe Biden has now been certified as the winner of the election by Congress, with 305 electoral college votes to Mr Trump ’s 232.
Mr Trump has since released a statement which said: “Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20. President Donald Trump declared he will “never concede” as Congress readied to meet to tally and certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
Clinging to the false idea that he won the United States election, Trump insisted to a crowd of tens of thousands gathered on Wednesday at the Ellipse near the White House that his “victory” was “stolen” by the Democrats. Trump supporters participate in a rally near the White House in Washington, DC on January 6, 2021 Trump then repeated his false theory that Vice President Mike Pence can block Biden’s victory during Wednesday’s joint session of Congress when it meets to count the certified electoral votes and make Biden’s election official.
That the President who pointed out the “very fine people on both sides” of the Charlottesville riots in 2017 could not bring himself to even mildly criticize supporters of his, no matter how violent, is part of the pathology. But that quite so much of his video (which Facebook removed from its platform within hours of its release) urging them to stop the madness simply at “coup attempt” was devoted to messages of understanding and fellow-feeling startled, even now.
(That the man who once preached shooting looters on sight reassured these insurrectionists that “we love you, you’re very special” is almost so obvious a contradiction to let pass without comment, but these times have tended to allow bad actors’ deeds to go uncommented-upon for too long.) Once Trump flickered away, gone in 62 seconds, the searing and troubling images of a day of chaos remained, easily legible for what it was, and who’d led it to the doors of the Capitol and inside.
“In a special session Thursday of the Executive Committee of the Leigh University Board of Trustees, the members voted to rescind and revoke the honorary degree granted to Donald J. Trump in 1988. Five people died in Wednesday’s storming of the Washington building as Congress was tallying Electoral College votes, in which Joe Biden soundly defeated Trump by a count of 306 to 232.
Due to the ongoing tensions in the United States, and an uptick in the global conversation in regard to the people who violently stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks. We assessed the two Tweets referenced above under our Glorification of Violence policy, which aims to prevent the glorification of violence that could inspire others to replicate violent acts and determined that they were highly likely to encourage and inspire people to replicate the criminal acts that took place at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
President Trump ’s statement that he will not be attending the Inauguration is being received by a number of his supporters as further confirmation that the election was not legitimate and is seen as him disavowing his previous claim made via two Tweets (1, 2) by his Deputy Chief of Staff, Dan Saving, that there would be an “orderly transition” on January 20th. The second Tweet may also serve as encouragement to those potentially considering violent acts that the Inauguration would be a “safe” target, as he will not be attending.
The mention of his supporters having a “GIANT VOICE long into the future” and that “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!! As such, our determination is that the two Tweets above are likely to inspire others to replicate the violent acts that took place on January 6, 2021, and that there are multiple indicators that they are being received and understood as encouragement to do so.
In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules entirely and cannot use Twitter to incite violence, among other things.

Pablo Martinez Minivans / AP Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump on Friday, shutting down one of the most consequential and ever-present accounts on the platform after years of refusing to do so because of his status as a world leader.

In a follow-up tweet she added, “I praise all the teachers and schools that are trying to make remote learning fun and as enjoyable as possible under the circumstances. In December 2019, the president's son revealed that Vanessa had cooked a second Thanksgiving meal for them and for the kids.
She also liked several tweets paying tribute to President Trump's late brother, Robert Trump, including a tweet from the president himself honoring his sibling.
