Trump has communicated policy through his Twitter page, and, as his former press secretary, Sean Spicer, once asserted, Trump ’s tweets are his “official statements.” They may as well be printed on official letterhead. This site aims to provide an up-to-date and unfiltered stream of Trump ’s latest tweets.

Trump was locked out of his account on his preferred social medial platform for 12 hours earlier this week after a violent mob loyal to him stormed the U.S. Capitol to try to stop Congress from affirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory. The rampage that has shocked the world and left the country on edge has forced the resignations of three top Capitol security officials over the failure to stop the breach.
It’s also led lawmakers to demand a review of operations and an FBI briefing over what they called a “terrorist attack.” And it’s prompting a broader reckoning over President Donald Trump ’s tenure in office and what comes next for a torn nation. Social media companies have been under intensified pressure to crack down on hate speech after Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol.
The company says that when it determines a group or campaign is engaged in “coordinated harmful activity,” it may suspend accounts that it finds primarily encourages that behavior. QAnon is a baseless belief, born on the internet, that Trump has been secretly fighting deep state enemies and a cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibals operating a child sex-trafficking ring.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has become the first Republican member of the Senate to call for President Donald Trump ’s resignation. The Alaska Republican tells the Anchorage Daily News that she wants Trump to resign after a violent mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol, forcing a lockdown.
President-elect Joe Biden says it’s up to Congress whether to pursue a second impeachment of President Donald Trump, but he expected lawmakers to be ready to move on his agenda as soon as he is inaugurated. Videos posted on Twitter show a crowd heckling Graham as he awaited a flight at Washington’s Reagan Airport on Friday.
On Thursday, Graham told reporters that Trump ’s actions had been the “problem” in the Capitol Hill violence, calling the matter a “self-inflicted wound.” Other GOP lawmakers who opposed the certification challenge, including Republican Sen. Mitt Romney, have also been harassed by Trump backers unwilling to accept the election’s results.
Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz to resign, arguing that their objections to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory “incited and supported the violent mob that attacked the Capitol.” Cruz, of Texas, and Hawley, of Missouri, were at the forefront of congressional efforts to object to the certification of Biden’s win over President Donald Trump.
Hawley says he “will never apologize for giving voice to the millions of Missourians and Americans who have concerns about the integrity of our elections.” In a statement, a Cruz spokesperson said the senator has “always condemned political violence” and has called for those who participated in the “terrorist attack” to be prosecuted.
This item has been corrected to show that Man chin said one option would be to hold Hawley and Cruz in contempt, not that he was specifically calling for it. His call comes two days after supporters of President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol and unsuccessfully tried to stop Congress from affirming Biden’s victory.
Biden said Friday from Wilmington, Delaware, that “we have no time to lose” as the coronavirus pandemic continues to inflict pain on the nation’s health and economy. Two days ago, a violent mob loyal to President Donald Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol to try to stop Congress from affirming Biden’s election victory.
Biden rounded out his economic team by announcing the nominations of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh as labor secretary, Rhode Island Gov. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is telling fellow Democrats that the nation’s top military officer has told her there are steps in place that would prevent President Donald Trump from firing nuclear weapons.
Pelosi is holding a conference call with House Democrats about what they should do about Trump doing his waning days in office, including the possibility of impeachment. Before Friday’s conference call, Pelosi told her colleagues that she had asked Gen. Mark Miller, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, about preventing Trump from initiating a nuclear strike.
A leading centrist Democratic senator says it seems unlikely that President Donald Trump can be quickly removed from office. Man chin says in an interview that he’s heard Vice President Mike Pence is not likely to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.
Man chin says that while he favors removing Trump as soon as possible, “We don’t need any more theater.” He says lawmakers should defer to President-elect Joe Biden’s need for the Senate to focus on confirming his Cabinet. Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas both knew they had no chance of persuading Congress to nullify Biden’s electoral votes this week.
She and Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer have called on Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment to force Trump from office. Trump wrote Friday that the “75,000,000 great American Patriots” who voted for him “will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future.
The tweets did not include any reference to the news overnight that U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian D. Sick nick had died after being injured while physically engaging with protesters during the Wednesday riot. It’s a highly unusual defense to criticism that hasn’t previously warranted a riposte from America’s top diplomat.
Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff says President Donald Trump is a “danger to the Republic” and should be removed from office immediately by impeachment, resignation or invoking the 25th Amendment. Trump was later acquitted by the Senate on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress over his dealings with Ukraine.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says those responsible for police officer Brian Sick nick’s death from the siege at the Capitol by a mob loyal to President Donald Trump “must be brought to justice.” Pro- Trump supporters were urged on by the president Wednesday to the Capitol where Congress was tallying the Electoral College votes to confirm Democrat Joe Biden’s election.
“The violent and deadly act of insurrection targeting the Capitol, our temple of American Democracy, and its workers was a profound tragedy and stain on our nation’s history,” Pelosi said. On Thursday, Pelosi said the House could move on impeachment if Pence and the Cabinet don’t remove Trump before his term ends on Jan. 20.
A police officer has died from injuries he suffered when President Donald Trump ’s supporters stormed the Capitol. And his death is intensifying questions about the defeated president’s remaining days in office and the ability of the U.S. Capitol Police to secure the area.
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.
