Tell Twitter to suspend Donald Trump!

President Trump sure has been busy. Last week, instead of focusing on keeping the economy running and Americans safe our president decided to take aim at America’s fourth estate - the media. In a borage of posts first aimed at two news hosts he tweeted:

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

Later he took it to a whole new disgusting level by tweeting a video of himself as a WWF wrestler body slamming and then punching a man whose head had been replaced by the CNN logo. The message was clear. If he could, President Trump would kick CNN’s behind. Not only are these tweets shameful, but they are dangerous. President Trump is encouraging violence against one of the most important institutions in our society, ones that help protect us from tyranny and that shine lights on the lies the powerful tell to suite their own agenda. 

It is no wonder then, why he wants to shut the media up, but using his Twitter account and his millions of followers to do it is a step too far. According to Twitter’s rules Twitter may suspend an account for a number of reasons, including if the user participates "in the targeted abuse or harassment of others."

What Trump has been doing over the last week is definitely targeted and can be considered nothing less than harassment yet, Twitter refuses to suspend his account.

Twitter should stand up to America’s biggest bully and give Trump a well deserved time out. The world needs a break from his nonsense and he needs to think about what he’s done.

Sign the petition and demand Twitter suspend Trump’s account until he promises to behave like an adult.

 

Donald Trump has crossed a line by attacking people based on their race, religion, gender and more. Twitter's Rules state, "Any accounts ... engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension" The defined activities include:

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease."

Examples of Trump's hateful conduct on Twitter include these tweets:

"When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best.  They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us.  They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists."

"Jeb Bush likes illegals because of his wife."  (Bush's wife Columbia is Mexican-American.)

"Sadly, because president Obama has done such a poor job as president, you won’t see another black president for generations."

"Be careful Bernie, or my supporters will go to yours!” (Referring to Sander's rallies.)

"The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!"

By locking or suspending Donald Trump's account, Twitter can send a powerful message that hate is not accepted or condoned on their platform. 

This is not a free speech issue. Trump can spew all the vitriol he wants at his rallies and any other public place. However, Twitter, as a third-party, has every right to define what type of content is allowed on their platform.

We call on Twitter to investigate @realDonaldTrump and temporarily suspend his account until, to use Trump's own words, they can "figure out what is going on".

Trump has gone too far. He is using his office and his twitter account to harass and incite violence against private citizens and the news media. Enough is enough. Twitter needs to suspend his account. More info here: https://goo.gl/eTH4CV

In a statement, Twitter said it would ban Trump if he violates its policies on hate speech! We argue he already has, but keep the pressure up by sharing the petition: http://bit.ly/2g2MLeR
Update #211 months ago
President-elect Trump is using Twitter to spread false information and propose monstrous ideas. On Sunday, he tweeted that millions of people voted illegally. And today, he tweeted that people should lose their citizenship or go to jail if they burn the American flag (an act protected by the Constitution). If Twitter doesn't suspend his account, Trump will continue to use it as a state propaganda machine. Please share this petition to encourage your friends to sign! >> http://bit.ly/2g2MLeR
