Twitter Labels Trump's Tweet As 'Glorifying Violence'

'When looting starts, shooting starts,' US president wrote about riots that started after killing of Floyd in arrest.

Twitter labeled Friday US President Donald Trump's tweet on Minneapolis with a warning of "glorifies violence."
"....These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!" Trump wrote in the hidden tweet about the riots following the death of an unarmed black man in arrest.
"This tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence," the warning says. "However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public's interest for the tweet to remain accessible."
The move came a day after Trump signed an executive order curbing protections for social media companies after Twitter labeled two of his posts "potentially misleading" and urged users to fact-check the information.
A fire broke out at the Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct building late Thursday as angry demonstrators stormed the building.
They could be seen in videos circulating on social media chanting "What's his name? George Floyd!" -- shouting the name of the man whose last words were "I can't breathe."
Minneapolis police abandoned the 3rd Precinct, "in the interest of the safety of our personnel."
Separately, more than 500 National Guard soldiers have been activated to Minneapolis, St. Paul and surrounding communities. Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey also declared a local emergency Thursday night due to civil disturbances.
Floyd's death elicited rage and thousands continue to flood the streets of Minneapolis to voice that black lives matter on the third day of the protests.
Mayor Jacob Frey announced Tuesday the four officers have been fired.
Video of Floyd's arrest captured by a bystander and posted on Facebook appeared to show the victim pinned to the ground, repeatedly pleading "I can't breathe" for nearly four minutes as an officer holds his neck to the ground with his knee. He appeared to be in handcuffs in the video footage.
Floyd appeared to lose consciousness, but the officer maintained his position on the victim.
His pulse was checked about three minutes after he stopped gasping for air while the officer continued to press his knee on Floyd's neck, but it is unclear from the video what the assessment was at that point. He is then loaded on to a stretcher and moved into an ambulance.
He did not appear to be conscious.
Floyd's family also said Tuesday that they want the police officers charged with murder. -
