BAD NEWS about President Trump’s Twitter Account
President Trump wields Twitter like Thor’s hammer. And he vexes the Left.
Unable to control the narrative, Leftists clamor to shut down President Trump. His effectiveness on Twitter is legendary, and he’s only getting better.
A Resistance group recently implored Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to do something about the president’s Twitter account. The group accuses Dorsey of being “complicit” in President Donald Trump’s controversial tweets.
As The Hill noted,
A Facebook event for the protest accuses Dorsey of “endangering the world” and violating its own rules by not banning Trump after he tweeted that his nuclear button is “much bigger” and “more powerful” than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

Frankly, I love this response from President Trump. Talk about speaking directly to the world.
Why filter his comment through the narrative of the fake news media. His response leaves no speculation. We don’t need Jake Tappers’ interpretation, as we got our unfiltered answer.
Moreover, how that for transparency? Sure, some would claim that he’s exposing his hand or other metaphorical nonsense. But the fact is, President Trump uses Twitter as a tool.
Interestingly, in the wake of this story we have North Korea reaching out diplomatically to South Korea. One can bet that Kim Jong Un’s overture would NEVER have occurred under America’s former sissy president.
Back to the brouhaha of Trump’s tweet
Trump’s tweet was undoubtedly in response to Kim’s comment earlier this week. In his “olive branch” tweet, Kim noted that he has a nuclear launch button at his desk.
I would suggest that Kim make sure his button isn’t one of those defective Hillary Clinton “easy” buttons she tried to give to the Russians. But I digress.
As for Twitter’s response, a spokesperson confirmed that the president’s tweet does not violate its terms of service because it is not a “specific threat.”
“You may not make specific threats of violence or wish for the serious physical harm, death, or disease of an individual or group of people,” Twitter’s policy reads.
Resistance wasn’t pleased and responded:
“Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter and Square, has enabled @realDonaldTrump from his first dog whistles in the birther movement to his latest nuclear pissing contest,” Resist SF wrote in the Facebook event. “Twitter is endangering the world and breaking its own terms of service to do it. Trump or Jack must go.”
President Trump continues to confound Leftists who want him banned for what they deem as attacks. They criticize Trump for Twitter attacks on individuals and businesses, which they claim violate Twitter’s rules.
Rightfully Dorsey defends Twitter’s decision not to ban Trump’s account. Dorsey said Trump’s tweets are newsworthy:
“Among the considerations is ‘newsworthiness’ and whether a Tweet is of public interest. This has long been internal policy and we’ll soon update our public-facing rules to reflect it. We need to do better on this, and will. Twitter is committed to transparency and keeping people informed about what’s happening in the world. We’ll continue to be guided by these fundamental principles,” the statement continued, after some had inquired whether this threat of violence would violate Twitter’s policy and be grounds for removal.
And as I indicated earlier, who better to offer transparency to the public than the president himself. So to put this into simple terms: Twitter is worth more with Trump than without him.
Ask yourself what the ramifications would be if Twitter banned Trump? Does anybody believe Trump wouldn’t have a social media site up within 2 days capable of getting the word out?
I suspect Zuckerberg would cut Trump a deal, like he was the top football recruit for the NFL. Name your price, Sir!
Jack Dorsey may appear altruistic, but his platform now depends on Trump. And if he bucks Trump, Dorsey’s considerable market cap for Twitter would drop quickly.
