    Twitter slapped a 'glorifying violence' label on a Trump tweet that threatened George Floyd protesters in Minneapolis with getting shot

    Twitter placed a click-through block on a tweet from President Donald Trump that it said was "glorifying violence."
    Trump's post was about violence in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died Monday after a white police officer pinned him to the ground by the neck for several minutes during an arrest.
    In his tweet, Trump said that the military might get involved in the protests and that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."
    Twitter said Trump's post "violates our policies regarding the glorification of violence based on the historical context of the last line, its connection to violence, and the risk it could inspire similar actions today."

    Twitter has hidden one of Trump's tweets behind a warning that it violates the platform's rules on "glorifying violence," a move that comes hours after he signed an executive order targeting Twitter and Facebook.

    It is indeed irresponsible to make preemptive death threats against looters. Destruction of property and petty theft do not merit a death sentence.

    Apparently the Fat One likes living in a world where blacks expect to be murdered by the authorities for any and all infractions.
