Twitter requires removal of three of Trump's tweets

Twitter Inc. required the removal of three tweets posted by United States President Donald Trump addressing the riots in Washington DC which resulted in a number of protesters breaking into the Capitol. The social media platform said the tweets represented "repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy."

The tweets include Trump's prerecorded statement in which he calls on the rioters to go home, but insists the presidential election was stolen from him, as well as a message stating that his "sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously and viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly and unfairly treated for so long." The third deleted tweet accused Vice President Mike Pence of lacking the courage to oppose the certification of the election. Facebook removed the video earlier.
