The White House's official Twitter account reposted Trump's tweet that was flagged for 'glorifying violence'


After Twitter flagged a tweet by President Donald Trump for "glorifying violence" early Friday, the White House reposted the tweet word for word to its official account Friday morning. 

Trump took to Twitter last night to threaten military intervention in Minneapolis, saying "when the looting stats, the shooting starts."

That tweet was given a click through block by the company, with the text left on the site.

Some time after 9 a.m. Friday, Twitter put the same disclaimer on the White House tweet.

Trump's original tweet came as protests over the death of George Floyd escalated across the country, with several apparent arsons occurring in the Twin Cities overnight, including at a police precinct. 

The tweet from the White House account comes as a clear provocation to Twitter, with the president's social media director calling the company "full of s***" after the initial tweet was flagged.

Throughout the week, Trump has been feuding with Twitter, particularly after they put a fact check on one of his tweets making false claims about voting by mail.

Trump then signed an executive order on Thursday threatening social media companies, accusing them of anti-conservative bias.

Shortly after that order was signed, Trump said he would shut Twitter down if it was legal.
