Hillary Clinton Gloats After Trump Permanently Banned From Twitter
Clinton retweeted the old message calling for removal of Trump's account
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton celebrated President Donald Trump’s being banned by Twitter.
The Jack Dorsey-owned platform also removed the president’s @TeamTrump account before Trump sent a message to his supporters from the official government @POTUS account.
Although Twitter removed the tweets, the account remains active.
The tweet read:
"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 the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me.
"Twitter may be a private company, but without the government’s gift of Section 230, they would not exist for long."
"I predicted this would happen and have been negotiating with various other sites, and will have a big announcement soon, while we also look at the possibilities of building out our own platform in the near future," Trump continued.
"We will not be SILENCED! Twitter is not about FREE SPEECH.
"They are all about promoting a Radical Left platform where some of the most vicious people in the world are allowed to speak freely. STAY TUNED."
Hollywood also rejoiced in Trump's Twitter ban, including actor George Clooney who said that Trump and his family name would go “into the dustbin of history.”
“This puts Donald Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka, all of them, into the dustbin of history."
Meanwhile, House Republicans expressed anger, comparing Trump's ban to a dystopian novel.
In 2016, Clinton responded to one of then-candidate Donald Trump’s tweets, calling on him to delete his account.
On Friday, four years later, she retweeted the old message, adding a checkmark.
Twitter permanently suspended President Trump’s account, citing it was “due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” a battle cry of many Democrat politicians who blame him for the chaos at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.https://t.co/CBpE1I6j8Y— Twitter Safety (@TwitterSafety) January 8, 2021
