Twitter declared that President Donald Trump’s tweets did not violate the platform’s anti-racism rules.
Brandon Borrman, a Twitter spokesman, said on Monday, July 15, “The Tweets in question do not violate Twitter rules,” according to The Washington Post.
He was referring to two messages in which the president was accused of racism and xenophobia, in which he mentions “aggressive ‘progressive’ Democratic congresswomen who say how the country is to be run when their own countries of origin are “a complete catastrophe.”
” So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democratic congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly…”
“…and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation in the world, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they come back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how…!”

The Democratic congresswomen who felt alluded to were Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley, who rejected what the head of state said before the press.
The comments were “an openly racist attack on four duly elected members of the U.S. House of Representatives, all women of color,” Congresswoman Omar said, according to Fox News.
Rep. Omar had previously been criticized by prominent members of both parties for making comments considered anti-Semitic.
