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.

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.
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.
A photo illustration shows the suspended Twitter account of U.S. President Donald Trump on a smartphone at the White House briefing room in Washington “Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH,” Trump wrote in the now-deleted tweets, adding that he is considering building his own social media platform in the near future.
Alphabet Inc's Google suspended Parker on Friday, citing posts inciting violence, while Apple Inc gave the service 24 hours to submit a detailed moderation plan. Promptly poked some holes in his plans. Biden began laying out his framework for the next round of COVID-19 relief, reports The Washington Post, and said his plans include a multi-trillion-dollar package that would provide “more direct relief flowing to families, small businesses,” in part via $2,000 stimulus checks. But Man chin, who Axis notes will become an increasingly important player as a moderate in the Democrats' razor-thin Senate majority, seemed taken aback by Biden's promise.
Before she died in Wednesday’s siege at the U.S. Capitol, Rosanne Boy land was a recovering drug addict who wanted to become a sobriety counselor. Boy land, 34, was one of three people who died of medical emergencies when a pro- Trump mob, egged on by the president, stormed the Capitol as Congress was certifying President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.
Law enforcement officials announced Friday that they had arrested the man pictured in a viral photograph sitting in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office with one leg up on her desk when pro- Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Barnett is being held in the Washington County Detention Center in Fayetteville, Ark., awaiting his initial appearance, according to NBC News. A New York Times reporter on Wednesday shared a video of Barnett, which he said was taken after the Arkansan's time in the speaker's office, and shows him bragging about taking a personalized envelope from the office, which he says he didn't steal.
Pelosi's aides have said her office was vandalized on Wednesday and that a laptop from a conference room had been stolen, though the equipment was only used for presentations. Officials earlier announced the arrests of 82 people at the state, local and federal levels, according to reports, while the FBI's Washington Field Office on Friday released 40 photos of people who are wanted in connection with the rioting at the Capitol. A state lawmaker from West Virginia was also charged Friday in connection with the riot at the Capitol. Derrick Evans, a Republican, reportedly recorded and then deleted a video of himself joining the crowd, leading to a petition asking for him to step down. Meanwhile, 70-year-old Lonnie Hoffman of Farmville, Ala. Is accused of having two handguns, an assault rifle and 11 Molotov cocktails that included gasoline and what appeared to be homemade napalm, officials said. Police were able to link Hoffman to a suspicious red GMC pick-up truck with Alabama plates, according to NBC News. Mark Leffingwell was charged and is accused of knowingly entering restricted ground and assaulting an officer after entering the Capitol.
Albert's, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, is also accused of having a pocketknife at the time. He “immediately tried to flee” before police detained him, according to court papers. President Trump reportedly spent much of Wednesday “cocooned” at the White House as his supporters stormed the Capitol, and his aides say he has become “mentally unreachable.
Ultimately, some aides believe Trump “did irreparable damage to his presidency and legacy,” the Post writes, with an administration official saying, “He was a total monster today. A white man who deliberately sped his car through a crowd of racial injustice protesters in Iowa City, striking several, will avoid prison and have the incident erased from his record if he stays out of trouble for three years.
A judge last month granted a deferred judgment for Michael Ray Stephane, 45, who told police he drove his Toyota Camry through the crowd in August because the protesters needed “an attitude adjustment.” The sentence means a felony charge of willful injury resulting in bodily injury against Stephane will be dismissed and expunged, as long as he does not commit a crime during a three-year term of probation. On Facebook, Mrs. Thomas expressed explicit love for the violent chaos carried out by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump, who are against the confirmation of President-elect Joe Biden.
Farmers digging in a citrus grove near Mexico’s Gulf coast have found a striking, six-foot-tall statue of a female figure who may represent an elite woman rather than a goddess, or some mixture of the two, experts said Friday. Hondurans have taken to WhatsApp and Facebook groups, some of which have thousands of subscribers, to organize another caravan scheduled to leave from the country's northern city San Pedro SLA on Jan. 15, despite the coronavirus pandemic.
“Do not waste your time and money, and do not risk your safety and health,” Mark Morgan, acting commissioner at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said in a statement. A sitting President incited a mob of his supporters to attack the United States Capitol building, where the Senate and House of Representatives were meeting in the Constitutionally required joint session to count the votes of the Electoral College.
He has lied repeatedly about what happened in that election, convincing millions of decent, honest people that his opponents committed systematic fraud, in effect conning his own supporters. Trump ’s charade promulgated the idea that Congress could overturn the duly certified results of the election from the key battleground states, enough to shift the Electoral College majority to his favor.
