US news.

19 days ahead of the 2020 US Presidential Elections, Twitter stepped up to suspend the official account of the acting president’s campaign after it posted a video of Hunter Biden’s recent scandal, and called his father a “liar, who has been ripping off the country for years.”

“Your account has been locked,” the suspension 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 Republican campaign account shared a link to a video referring to the latest New York Post explosive report that shed light about alleged emails Hunter Biden exchanged with a Ukrainian top executive, introducing his father then the vice-president.

  • Another Trump tweet flagged by Twitter for ‘encouraging people to vote twice’
  • Trump's Twitter account has been temporarily limited
  • Trump campaign’s officials called Twitter’s move “a plain and simple interference in the election.”

    “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,” the campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said.

    “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.”

    Learning about Twitter actions against his campaign from Fox host Stuart Varney, Trump’s response came back hostile:

    “Well, I haven’t heard that, but if it is, it is. It’s going to all end up in a big lawsuit.”
