Kamala Harris Doubles Down, Calls on Twitter CEO to 'Do Something' About Trump
2020 Democrat ups the ante on her calls to have President Trump banned from social media
2020 Democrat Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is doubling down on her recent calls, for Donald Trump to be banned from social media, by asking Twitter's CEO to "do something about" her president.
Harris said on Monday night that President Trump should have his Twitter account suspended over his tweets about the Ukraine phone call whistleblower whose complaint triggered House Democrats to launch an inquiry into his potential impeachment.
“The President’s tweets and his behaviors about this are just further evidence of the fact that he uses his power in a way that is designed to beat people down instead of lift people up,” the Democratic presidential candidate told CNN.
On Tuesday evening, Trump blasted House Democrats, accusing them of pushing the ongoing impeachment inquiry against him as part of a "coup."
....People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 1, 2019
"As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!" Trump tweeted.
Harris reacted to the tweet with a plea to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
"Hey, @jack. Time to do something about this," the 2020 hopeful wrote.
Accoridng to Fox News, the California Democrat initially called for Trump to be suspended on Monday in reaction to his attacks on the whistleblower who shed a light on his communications with Ukraine.
"The president's tweets and his behaviors about this are just further evidence of the fact that he uses his power in a way that is designed to beat people down instead of lift people up," Harris said on CNN.
"Frankly, when you look at what he's been tweeting today directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we've seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be -- his Twitter account should be suspended.”
On Saturday, Trump released a video exposing former Vice President Joe Biden's ties to Ukraine's top prosecutor being fired while investigating Hunter Biden's company.
The short ad also takes aim at Democrats and accomplices in the establishment media who are flipping the scandal and using it to call for President Trump's impeachment.
Trump posted the new video to Twitter with a caption that simply reads:
"I AM DRAINING THE SWAMP."
