According to Fox News, Twitter has officially suspended President Trump’s twitter account.
Twitter reportedly claims that Trump’s tweet calling Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden a “liar” is a violation of their policy.
“Your account has been locked,” the standard Twitter message read.
“What happened? We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: Violating our rules against posting private information.”
“You may not publish or post other people’s private information without their express authorization and permission,” the post reads.

Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh shared a statement on the matter, “This is election interference, plain and simple. For Twitter to lock the main account of the campaign of the President of the United States is a breathtaking level of political meddling and nothing short of an attempt to rig the election.”
“Joe Biden’s Silicon Valley pals are aggressively blocking negative news stories about their guy and preventing voters from accessing important information. This is like something from communist China or Cuba, not the United States of America.”
“This is chilling censorship of a sitting President’s re-election campaign 19 days from an election, plain and simple,” Andrew Clark, Trump campaign Rapid Response Director told Fox News. “Twitter is interfering in the election and trying to stop the public from learning damning information about the Biden family’s corruption at all cost, but our campaign and our supporters will not be silenced.”
Big tech is officially, and brazenly, dominating the control and censorship of information.
The dim dems don’t even care how obvious their attempts appear as they try to hide just how bad dementia-Joe is for this country.
I reckon Twitter should be feared more than Communist China… I know, a bit of a stretch, but you get the idea.
All-in-all, if the Democrats really didn’t believe their candidate was unfit, what would be the justification for such nasty behavior and election meddling?
Voters should have the right to access pertinent information to make an informed decision about the candidates… especially the not-so-pretty information.
More from Fox News:
A spokesman for Twitter did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Twitter also blocked White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the New York Post report on Hunter Biden on her personal account.
The Trump campaign shared what appears to be a screenshot of an email McEnany received from Twitter, alerting her that her account “has been locked.”
“We have determined that this account violated the Twitter Rules. Specifically, for: Violating our rules against distribution of hacked material,” the email read.
