US President Donald Trump said on Twitter “there will never be an “Autonomous Zone” in Washington, D.C., as long as I’m your President. If they try they will be met with serious force!”
Twitter put a “public interest notice” on a tweet by US President Donald Trump that threatened protesters with “serious force.”
The warning label said the tweet is “violating our policy against abusive behavior, specifically, the presence of a threat of harm against an identifiable group.”
His tweet was in response to demonstrations that took place in Lafayette Park across from the White House where protesters late Monday reportedly tried to bring down a statue of former President Andrew Jackson.
Protesters spray-painted “BHAZ” near the White House, an acronym for “Black House Autonomous Zone,” according to The Hill website.
