    Why would they do that?
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Because in between all that rhetoric Trump calls for stopping the protests, by calling them riots.

    Where? In the video he even said we support the right to peaceful protest.

    rumor has it for copy right reasons. but after that Don Lemon went on air and said that Trump did not acknowledge George Floyd even in a tweet. Either he was to stupid to check the actual report or he knew what Twitter did and lied through his teeth.

    He says a lot of things...

    Calling in riot police to put down a peaceful protest in order to grab a photo op is a demonstration of just how much he "supports" them.

    The tweet was taken down over copyright concerns.


    Twitter disabled a video this week on a post by the Trump campaign in a move that could escalate its tensions with the president, whose tweets have recently been subject to warning labels from the company. This time, however, the takedown happened for a more traditional reason.

    The video in the Trump campaign tweet was a four-minute tribute to George Floyd, the black man in Minneapolis who died after a police officer pressed his knee into Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes, setting off a wave of protests about police brutality and racism that has swept the nation. Twitter said it had removed the video after it received a copyright complaint.

    “We respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,” a Twitter spokesperson told Recode.


    MORE RWNJ hype. Holy hell.

    Who wants to bet me $5 that if the copyright issues are addressed that the video will be allowed on Twitter without issue?

    probably the music track. Facebook and twitter have AI algorithms that can tell if a copyrighted song is used in a video and automatically tag it or remove it. I posted a fake trailer I made with iMovie which used an audio track that iMovie clearly had rights to and so I should also, since the whole purpose is to make movie clips (it was a fill in the blank type automated video trailer) - and facebook removed it for "copyright violation"
