Donald Trump Shares Harsh Words For Twitter Over Marjorie Taylor Greene

When Twitter permanently suspended former President Donald Trump's account, he took it pretty hard. The decision was made "after close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account," according to a statement from the company. 

There were fears that allowing Trump to continue using Twitter might lead to "further incitement of violence." As the BBC reported, several of the controversial politician's social media accounts were closed after former First Lady Michelle Obama urged the various platforms to stop enabling his "monstrous behavior." 

The devastating Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021, seemed to be the last straw after Trump tweeted that those involved were "patriots."

He was warned about being banned but refused to heed it. After an initial suspension, Trump returned to the platform and continued tweeting inflammatory messages, which led Twitter to cut him off for good. 

In particular, a couple of his most egregious tweets were deemed to be "in violation of the Glorification of Violence Policy." Trump briefly resumed tweeting again, using his official @POTUS account, but was soon banned there, too. 

His 2020 campaign adviser, Jason Miller, described the move as "disgusting." Former national security adviser Michael Flynn and lawyer Sidney Powell, both Trump supporters, were also banned from the site, while conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh deleted his account in solidarity.

Now, following the removal of another major right-wing politician from the platform, Trump is rallying the troops once more.

Donald Trump says Twitter is an affront to democracy after Marjorie Taylor Greene is banned

According to Business Insider, former President Donald Trump is railing at Twitter for banning Marjorie Taylor Greene from the platform. The controversial representative's personal account was permanently suspended following repeated violations of Twitter's strict COVID-19 misinformation policy. 

Trump described the site as a "disgrace to democracy" in a statement released through his Save America PAC. 

"Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people," he said. "They don't deserve what's happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook. They're boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our nation." 

In fact, Trump reckons that his loyal followers should dispense with the popular social media sites entirely, urging them to use his new social media venture, Truth Social, instead. The new platform is set to launch sometime in the next few months. 

NBC News confirms that Greene still has access to her professional account, @RepMTG, but only time will tell whether she holds onto it. The beleaguered politician claimed in a response to the ban that she'd been kicked off Twitter simply for sharing statistics. 

"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." 

She was previously suspended for making false claims about election fraud and for spreading additional vaccine misinformation.
