Twitter suspends account hours after it was retweeted by Donald Trump

He'll not be pleased with that.

Twitter has suspended an account just a few hours after US President Donald Trump retweeted a post from it.


Trump retweeted a post from an account operating under the name 'Lynn Thomas' that accused Democrats of being "the true enemies of America".

The account, which was created in September 2018, described itself as a "Fierce Trump supporter" in the bio and declared: "I'm not a bot."

Twitter confirmed to CNN that the account was suspended as it had broken the social media site's rules.

Twitter did not state which of its rules and policies the account had broken.

When asked on Tuesday about his actions on Twitter, Trump said that he had no issue with his own tweets, but added: "The bigger problem are the retweets. You'll retweet something that sounds good, but it turned out to be from a player that's not the best player in the world, that sort of causes a problem."

In the past, when pages that have supported Trump have been suspended, Trump has referred to it as an attack on free speech.

When conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' account was suspended, Trump tweeted that he was "continuing to monitor the censorship of American citizens on social media platforms".


Although Trump is fond of a tweet, as we know, he is far more cautious when he likes tweets. You can read more about that here.
