Donald Trump has been mocked for suggesting that people needed ID to attend this year’s virtual Democratic National Convention (DNC). “To get into the Democrat National Convention, you must have an ID card with a picture...” the president wrote in an early morning tweet on Friday.
In years gone by, those wishing to attend the DNC have been asked to buy a ticket and provide photographic ID to gain entry. In recent weeks, Mr Trump has attempted to claim that this year’s presidential election could fall foul to voter fraud, as millions of Americans cast their votes via postal services due to the pandemic.
Trump News Today is an aggregation of recent articles, tweets, and video featuring Donald Trump. We try hard to publish content from viewpoints across the entire political spectrum.
This site is not intended to favor left or right viewpoints, but rather a source to absorb the overall sentiment of our President in the news. Twitter took the unprecedented step of removing three of President Trump ’s tweets and locking his account for at least 12 hours following a day of chaos at the Capitol Building on Wednesday.
The missives were sent after mayhem shut down Congressional proceedings to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the November election. Citing the “unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C.,” Twitter said in a statement that the president must delete the tweets, and that his account “will be locked for 12 hours” once he does.
“Future violations of the Twitter Rules, including our Civic Integrity or Violent Threats policies, will result in permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump account,” the social media service added. “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long,” Trump wrote.
Twitter said early Thursday morning that Trump deleted the offending tweets and that his account would be restored within 12 hours, according to Bloomberg. “We’ve assessed two policy violations against President Trump ’s Page which will result in a 24-hour feature block, meaning he will lose the ability to post on the platform during that time,” Facebook said in a statement.
Snapchat also said late Wednesday night that they had removed President Trump from their platform as well, according to Axis. 1/ House Democrats plan to introduce articles of impeachment against Trump on Monday for “incitement of insurrection.” A draft copy of the impeachment resolution states that Trump “has demonstrated that he will remain a threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution if allowed to remain in office, and thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.” The move follows Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s earlier call for Trump to “immediately” resign for his role in a “horrific assault on our democracy,” adding “If the President does not leave office imminently and willingly, the Congress will proceed with our action.” Pence, meanwhile, privately ruled out invoking the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
With resignations thinning the ranks around him and growing calls for his removal, president says he will depart peacefully on Jan. 20. 2/ Nancy Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff about “preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities” or accessing the nuclear codes.
In a letter to her House colleagues, Pelosi said “The situation of this unhinged President could not be more dangerous, and we must do everything that we can to protect the American people from his unbalanced assault on our country and our democracy.” Pelosi said Gen. Mark Miller “assured that there are safeguards in place.” (New York Times / Washington Post / CNBC / NBC News) 4/ Trump condemned the “heinous attack” on the Capitol that he incited and said he would leave office peacefully Jan. 20 after facing bipartisan calls for his removal and pressure from advisers to more forcefully respond to the riot, which left five people dead, including a Capitol Police officer.
Donald Trump ’s Twitter account provides an extraordinary unfiltered insight into what the President is doing and thinking in real time. He posts on the social media site almost every day, often very early in the morning or late at night, sharing both official White House business and personal opinion.
U.S. President Donald Trump makes a fist during a rally to contest the certification of the 2020 U.S. presidential election results by the U.S. Congress in Washington U.S., January 6, 2021. “As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me,” Trump wrote in a series of tweets that are no longer visible on the social media service.
Earlier in the day, the company announced that it would permanently suspend Trump's personal account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” The company also noted that plans for future armed protests had begun proliferating on and off of the social media service.
In his POTUS tweets, Trump reiterated his call to repeal Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, a 1996 law that shields tech companies from being held liable for what users post on their platforms. “I'm more determined than ever to strip Section 230 protections from Big Tech (Twitter) that let them be immune from lawsuits,” Graham tweeted.
10 hr 21 min ago Twitter said Friday evening that it took action against the four tweets that President Trump shared from the POTUS account. Earlier today : Twitter’s decision to suspend Trump's account followed two tweets Friday afternoon that would end up being his last.
The tweets violated the company’s policy against the glorification of violence, Twitter said in a blog post, and “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.” The company also told CNN it will enforce its policy against ban evasions to ensure that Trump does not circumvent his personal account's suspension.
11 hr 18 min ago Cruz speaks at a campaign rally for Sen. Kelly Offer, on Saturday, January 2, in Cumming, Georgia. A former communications' director for Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, Amanda Carpenter, sharply criticized the Texas lawmaker today for his role in supporting President Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election and incite the attack on the Capitol.
“I can surmise he thinks he's a smart lawyer who can parse his way out of it, and in his mind he has some kind of rational but that's just not believable.” “He has to come to terms with the fact that through his actions directly played into the hands of the mob and stop,” she continued.
“It is so horrifying to watch someone descend into this and not be able to admit what happened when you worked for him and you believed in him,” Carpenter told CNN's Erin Burnett. 11 hr 43 min ago Twitter’s decision to suspend President Trump's account followed two tweets Friday afternoon that would end up being his last.
The tweets violated the company’s policy against the glorification of violence, Twitter said in a blog post, and “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.” Trump ’s other statement about American patriots suggested that “he plans to continue to support, empower, and shield those who believe he won the election,” Twitter said.
Twitter told CNN the company will enforce its policy against ban evasions to ensure that Trump does not circumvent his personal account's suspension. “If it is clear that another account is being used for the purposes of evading a ban, it is also subject to suspension,” Twitter said in a statement.
However, these accounts will be transitioned over to the new administration in due course and will not be suspended by Twitter unless absolutely necessary to alleviate real-world harm.” Civil rights leaders who have long criticized tech platforms for spreading hate speech and division welcomed Twitter’s decision.
President Trump presents a danger to the nation's domestic security and should be removed from office as quickly as possible, Democratic Rep. Jason Crow said today. She said in a statement Friday that she has instructed the House Rules Committee to prepare for a meeting to approve a rule that would govern floor debate for an impeachment resolution as well as a bill Rep. Jamie Rankin has proposed to create a congressional commission that would allow the 25th Amendment to be invoked.
Lee's spokesperson said the two calls from Trump and his attorney were intended for Sen. Tommy Turberville, a newly elected Republican from Alabama. The effort by the White House to get Turberville to delay certification of the votes provides insight into the President's thinking and priorities as a mob of his supports lay siege on the iconic building.
Turberville spoke with Trump for less than 10 minutes, with the President trying to convince him to make additional objections to the Electoral College vote in a futile effort to block Congress' certification of President-elect Joe Biden's win, according to a source familiar with the call. Lee's office confirmed to CNN that the voicemail was intended for Turberville and that the message left from Giuliani was very similar to one another unnamed GOP senator received.
“I'm calling you because I want to discuss with you how they're trying to rush this hearing and how we need you, our Republican friends, to try to just slow it down, so we can get these legislatures to get more information to you,” Giuliani said, referring to unfounded claims of voter fraud in the presidential election. CNN reported on Wednesday that even after Congress was reconvening that night following the riot, Trump was still urging senators to push ahead with the protest on the certification of Biden as president, according to a source familiar with the discussions.
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is calling on President Donald Trump to resign following the riots at the Capitol on Wednesday, making her the first Republican senator to take that step. He’s either been golfing or he’s been inside the Oval Office fuming and throwing every single person who has been loyal and faithful to him under the bus, starting with the vice president,” Murkowski told the paper.
