Donald Trump, 6-20-18It often seems to me Twitter should suspend Donald Trump’s Twitter account for violation of Twitter’s Rules. It seems to me he has often violated these two rules.

Abuse: You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so. We consider abusive behavior an attempt to harass, intimidate, or silence someone else’s voice.

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against, threaten, or harass other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease. Read more about our hateful conduct policy.

Then again, perhaps Twitter just looks at his tweets as the work of a confused, misinformed person (I use that term in deference to a couple others I prefer), who often does not get his facts straight or exaggerates them to make either the details or himself look more impressive.

Here’s. in which he claims there are far more immigration judges than there actually are, that North Korea is taking more steps toward denuclearization than they are, that crime in Germany is “way up,” when it is actually down (however, murders have increased), and Trump suggests there has been a turnaround in job creation in the U.S. when there hasn’t.
