Trump slams Twitter as ‘disgrace to democracy’ over Marjorie Taylor Greene ban

Former President Donald Trump took another swipe at Twitter late Monday after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) was banned from the platform for spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Twitter is a disgrace to democracy,” Trump said in a statement released by his Save America PAC. “They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country.”

“Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook,” added the 45th president, referencing a 24-hour suspension Greene received from the Mark Zuckerberg-founded social network Monday.

“Everybody should drop off of Twitter and Facebook,” Trump concluded. “They’re boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our Nation. Keep fighting, Marjorie!”

The former president is not a stranger to Twitter punishment, having been barred from the site early last year in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Trump was also banned from Facebook and YouTube at the time.

Trump’s statement came one day after Twitter yanked Greene’s personal account from the site. Her official congressional account“@RepMTG” is still online.

“We permanently suspended the account … for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation policy,” Twitter said in a statement. “We’ve been clear that, per our strike system for this policy, we will permanently suspend accounts for repeated violations of the policy.”

Soon after, Greene accused Twitter of being “an enemy of the people.”
