Twitter removes Trump campaign tribute to George Floyd claiming copyright complaint
Twitter on Thursday removed a video tribute to George Floyd posted by President Trump’s reelection campaign, claiming it had run afoul of the website’s policy on copyrighted material.

The Team Trump account tweeted out a nearly four-minute long video that is narrated by a speech the president gave a few days after Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody.

In the video, the president can be heard lamenting the “grave tragedy” of Floyd’s death over images of Floyd and peaceful protesters mourning his death.

Twitter on Thursday removed a video tribute to George Floyd posted by President Trump’s reelection campaign, claiming it had run afoul of the website’s policy on copyrighted material.

The Team Trump account tweeted out a nearly four-minute long video that is narrated by a speech the president gave a few days after Floyd died in Minneapolis police custody.

In the video, the president can be heard lamenting the “grave tragedy” of Floyd’s death over images of Floyd and peaceful protesters mourning his death.


Later in the video, the president warns about “violence and anarchy” from “radical leftwing groups” over images of riots and looting. He also describes the vast majority of law enforcement officials as “devoted public servants” as the video shows images of police officers hugging civilians and people cleaning up graffiti and garbage in the streets.

The Team Trump video was retweeted by Trump and his son, Donald Trump Jr., before it was removed with a message that said: “This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner.”

The Trump campaign says it reached out to Twitter to ask who had complained about the video and how it had run afoul of the website’s copyright policy.

“This incident is yet another reminder that Twitter is making up the rules as they go along," said Andrew Clark, a spokesman for the Trump campaign. "From the dubious removal of the hilarious Nickelback video to capricious fact checks and manipulated media labels to questionable claims of copyright, Twitter has repeatedly failed to explain why their rules seem to only apply to the Trump campaign but not to others. Censoring out the president’s important message of unity around the George Floyd protests is an unfortunate escalation of this double standard.

Rubbish.

The democrats want trump out by all means, using every ally and situation available. Yet they are the most wicked and heartless set of politicians.

The world would be better off without them.

tianshie:


I have a big problem with toilet wipes like you. When bugs like you come to the United States, you never vote Republican. You know instantly that the democrats are your friends. It is the democrats that try to help immigrants float along until they can obtain permanent residence or citizenship. It is the democrats that pursue legislation that fosters equality, that targets immigrant-households and alerts them that the government recognizes them. When you are poor, hopeless, and downtrodden in America, it is the Democrats who look out for you and give you hope. The Republicans are all about conservatism, whose definition seems to loosen or tighten depending on what their present leaders are up to.

It is only JEALOUSY, IGNORANCE and SCHADENFREUDE that cause Nigerians to support Trump and his mean immigrant policies, over the Nigerian, Kenyan, Mexican, Venezuelan, Brazilian, Polish, and other immigrants in the US. You're jealous because your life is FC.UKED up in Nigeria and you can't stand the fact that other Nigerians, like you, have escaped the vicious cycle of poverty and disease in Nigeria. How can any right thinking Nigerian support Trump? Trump who treats people who look like you like sh.it. Dem swear for you ni? Onye iberibe.

You're suffering from cognitive dissonance.

I'm not interested in migrating to America. If I where, I would have been there long ago. I'm not a young youth searching for greener pastures. I'm more interested on their influence in world affairs because it ends up affecting me where I am. And not only me but my children and generations yet unborn because USA is the most influential country in the world and would remain that way for generations to come.

From all you have said, all I can discipher is that your god is your stomach. It's all about who makes you feel good at the present, even if they have to ruin your life in future. The dems have messed up so many peoples lives with their liberal views, practically turned the world upside down with their satanic leftists agenda, spearheading the killing of millions of unborn children since Roe v. Wade, encouraging the lgbt movements, ruining the family system, killed Gaddafi (did you see how Hillary laughed when that man was killed), ruined Libya, helped Buhari get into power and many other despicable things I have no time to start typing.

I'm not your typical tribalist or sentimental nairalander who supports trump maybe because he doesn't like Buhari. Since I attained a certain level of enlightenment, I have always preferred the Republicans to the Democrats. I cried when Obama became president because he was and still is one of the most morally bankrupt leaders forming nice guy. Bullshit! I rejoiced when hilary lost and I am praying quid pro joe Biden is disgraced at the polls.

For you it's about migration, feel good etc, for me its ideology, sanity, family life, and the future of our societies.

Time will vindicate the conservatives.

The Frustration of these liberals and their accomplices cannot be overemphasized, but Trump is the only Crazy Genius that can handle the Muslim loving, China apologists Democrats and match them craze for craze, drama for drama. I bet both Senator Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio now understand better that Trump is far ahead than them during the first primary, he is natural but strategic brawler that can handle all of the establishment and their antics. Trump will win come November 3 and there will be mass suicide, maybe even on Nairaland.

If they wanted competition for Trump, Bernie Sanders would have pulled a big weight but Sleepy Joe will be thrashed mercilessly by Trump.

Remember during the last debate with Hilary Clinton, CNN and all the democrats thought that was his end until he spring up a devastating surprise by bringing to the Hall the women Bill Clinton abused. That was what broke the camel's back .

And you know what, Obama might go to Jail grin

He shows support, you rant, if he doesn’t show, you criticize

If they really care, they would have done this earlier but because it’s election year, democrats are throwing all their weapons, Snapchat started this, now it’s Twitter, if you think they’re doing this cause they care, I laugh at your ignorance

Still waiting for them to delete photoshopped image of Hitler holding bible though grin

Biden with wallace, strom and his segregation letter but trump is the white supremacist according to the media grin grin

Don’t believe what I wrote, DuckDuckGo the names I posted and free yourself from mental slavery... Obama destroyed libya, which in turn lead to terrorism in Sahel region of Africa, human trafficking and crossing Sahara desert into Europe, a very dangerous route, now Africa are being sold as slaves in open markets of Benghazi and Tripoli... who caused that ? Hillary/Obama



I’ll be happy if you can tell me anything racist bout trump and any country he has attacked with US military

Peace
