Trump Torches ‘Low-Life Twitter’ after Marjorie Taylor Greene Ban
45th president blasts Big Tech platform
Donald Trump blasted Twitter after it permanently suspended the personal account of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) following her violation of its COVID-19 misinformation policy.
The 45th president called the network "a disgrace to democracy" and said it "shouldn't be allowed to do business in this Country."
"Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people," Trump said.
"They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook."
Trump encourages supporters to "drop off" both Twitter and Facebook, saying they were "hated by everyone" because they portrayed left-leaning views.
"They are a disgrace to our Nation. Keep fighting, Marjorie!" Trump said.
A Twitter spokesperson told Fox News:
"We permanently suspended the account you referenced (@mtgreenee) for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy."
"We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy."
In response, Greene said in a Telegram post that she was not spreading misinformation.
"Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth," Greene said.
"That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies."
Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported Greene was suspended for “misinformation" on the coronavirus.
The Republican was hit with multiple suspensions from the platform.
Last year, Trump himself was permanently banned from Twitter
Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal scrambled to assure investors that Twitter would prevail despite banning its most famous and popular user.
Then CEO Jack Dorsey admitted that Big Tech's anti-Trump effort sets a "dangerous precedent" and will be "destructive" in the long term.
"I do not celebrate or feel pride in the ban," Dorsey wrote.
