Trump responded to Twitter’s decision to permanently cancel his account

The cause of the violence that broke out at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 is under investigation. On Friday morning, President Donald Trump tweeted that he will not be attending Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20. Mr. Biden later responded that this was a good thing.

On Friday evening, Twitter announced it was permanently canceling Trump’s personal account, and the president responded by saying he was considering setting up his own platform.

On January 6th a crowd stormed the Capitol building, interrupting a joint session of Congress to count the electoral votes. Many people were killed in the conflict. As of Jan. 7, 55 cases had been filed, most of them related to a break-in at the U.S. Capitol during protests in Washington this week.

Trump said in a video message on Twitter on Thursday (January 7). Trump began by condemning the violence at the Capitol and stressing that the United States must always be a nation of laws. He added that parliament had certified the results and that a new government would take office on January 20. The focus now is to ensure a smooth, orderly and smooth transition of power. This is a time of healing and healing.

The U.S. Congress certified Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as the winner early Monday morning.

Democratic congressmen, some Republican congressmen and the mainstream media have blamed the violent intrusion on the Capitol on President Donald Trump. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, said Friday that if Trump does not resign, she would be prepared to move forward with impeachment proceedings or move to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office.

Trump’s supporters say he did not incite violence in his speech, that the mainstream media misunderstood the January 6 rally and that people infiltrated the crowds. There are also concerns that the United States is on the verge of socialism or Marxism.

Here’s a look at the developments in the Capitol on Jan. 8 (EST), as well as a live update on the U.S. election.


Twitter deleted two new tweets from Donald Trump’s official account on Friday night, after canceling his personal account.

“We will not be silent!” Trump tweeted from his official account.

The @POTUS government account has 33.4 million followers.

“Twitter has nothing to do with freedom of speech,” Trump wrote in the now-deleted tweet.

He added that he was considering setting up his own social media platform in the near future.


Trump Dialogue has responded to Twitter’s permanent cancellation of his personal account, condemning the big tech giant and saying the move does not represent freedom of speech.

“As I’ve been saying for quite some time, Twitter has gone further and further in its efforts to ban free speech. Tonight, Twitter employees have worked with Democrats, radical left groups, to remove my account from the platform and silence me and you. Seventy-five million great patriots voted for me.” Trump said.

“Twitter may be a private company, but they wouldn’t be around for very long without the benefits of Section 230,” Trump added in a statement.

“I predict this will happen. We have been in talks with various other platforms and will have a major announcement soon, as well as considering the possibility of building our own platform in the near future. We will not be silent!”

He went on to say that Twitter has nothing to do with freedom of speech. Their whole purpose is to create a “radical left” platform where some of the most venomous people in the world can speak freely.

“Stay tuned!” Trump said.

Around 6:30 p.m. ET, Twitter announced it was permanently removing Trump’s account.

“After carefully reviewing the latest tweets from President DonaldTrump’s (@realDonaldTrump) account and the content surrounding it — in particular how the content was received and distributed on Twitter, both online and offline — we have permanently blocked the account,” the company’s blog explained.

Twitter blamed two tweets from Donald Trump today for the move to cancel the account. “The great voice of the 75 million great American patriots who voted for me, America First and America Great Again extends into the future,” Trump tweeted Friday morning. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!”

He later posted that he would not be attending Mr. Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

Twitter said the posts violated its “violence glorification policy.” The firm’s assessment determined that these last two posts by Trump were highly likely to encourage and inspire people to replicate the criminal act that took place in the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Epoch Times has contacted the White House to ask if the president is considering using Parler or other social media. Epoch Times has also sought comment on the Trump campaign.

In addition, Parler, a social media site created by conservatives, was threatened by Apple to remove it. Parler is seen as an alternative to Twitter, and many Trump fans and conservatives have turned to it.


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told members of the House on Friday that impeachment proceedings will continue if President Donald Trump does not resign.

“Members expect the president to resign immediately,” Pelosi said in a statement after a caucus meeting. “However, if he does not, I have directed the Rules Committee to stand ready to work with Congressman Jamie Raskin to move forward on the 25th Amendment and the motion of impeachment.”

President-elect Joe Biden said Friday that this is a matter for Congress.

“When [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi and [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer talked about this, obviously it was just another political motive to try to bring up. It’s disappointing.” “Blount said.

Twitter suspended the accounts of the former National Security Adviser General Michael Flynn and the lawyer Sidney Powell.

Both accounts said: “The account has been suspended… Twitterers will suspend accounts that break Twitter’s rules.”

It is unclear why they suspended their accounts for Twitter;

Brandon Straka, the head of the conservative WalkAway movement, said on Friday that Facebook had deleted the group’s page and banned individual accounts belonging to the group.


The Democrats intend to launch another attempt to impeach the president, and several media reports say the process will begin next Monday. The White House responded Friday with a statement saying: “As President Trump said yesterday, this is a time of healing and unity as a nation. To initiate a politically motivated impeachment with 12 days left in the presidency will only further divide our great country. “

‘We need to talk about it because it’s not going to be swept away,’ he said.

Both Republican senators in Georgia have declared their defeat, conceding defeat to the two Democratic candidates.

The founder of Moms of America (MFA) says media coverage of the January 6 protest at the Capitol has been distorted.

In a news release issued Jan. 7, Kimberly Fletcher, a mother of eight and the founder and chairman of the MFA, said the alleged violence and looting that took place on Wednesday had been exaggerated in some media outlets. Fletcher claimed that most of the actions taken by protesters that day were peaceful.

“What you’ve seen in the media is lies,” Fletcher wrote.

Fletcher also said the media is trying to make everything about President Donald Trump and the millions of people who love freedom and just want honest elections they can trust. “I was in Washington, D.C., and I went to all these events. So let me share the truth and the facts.”

Mr. Fletcher said the MFA had been warned by the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) and its own security team before the protest. Antifa and the BLM “are communicating through their networks — via email and social media — to dress like Trump supporters, infiltrate our events and cause trouble,” the warning said.


Biden and Ho were accused of double standards when they said “thugs” had broken into Capitol Hill, but called the BLM a “peaceful protest.”

Utah station KUTV2 reported Thursday that John Sullivan, founder of the left-wing group Insurgent USA, broke a window into the Capitol Sunday and saw a female protester shot.

In response to the violent clashes in the US Congress, Australian MP George Christensen on the afternoon of January 8, slammed the US left and the fake news media as hypocrites, lying to blame for President Donald Trump.

In a Facebook post, Christensen said the left and the fake news media are “shameless” in their false claims that President Donald Trump has incited violence.

Christensen said that yesterday, rather than stoking violence, President Trump repeatedly publicly called for “peace” and “law and order.”

Christensen attacked the left and the left-wing media for falsely calling the legitimate protest a “rebellion” and an attempt at a “coup” because a small number of protesters had rioting, which was not the case.

“This is a mob sabotaging and illegally entering the U.S. Congress, not a coup or insurrection.”
