Despite what they say, Democrats do not hold true to their word when it comes to protecting free speech.
In addition to impeaching President Trump, Democrat presidential hopeful Kamala Harris – whose campaign is sinking, by the way – wants our president’s Twitter account suspended, too!
In advocacy of a social media giant silencing the President of the USA, Kamala Harris stated on CNN,
“Frankly, when you look at what he’s been tweeting today directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we’ve seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be — his Twitter account should be suspended.”
Here's the video with full context of what Kamala Harris had to tell Anderson Cooper from CNN:
Fox News has more to say:
Sen. Kamala Harris said on Monday night that President Trump should have his Twitter account suspended over his tweetsabout the whistleblower whose complaint has helped launch an official House inquiry into his potential impeachment.
"The President's tweets and his behaviors about this are just further evidence of the fact that he uses his power in a way that is designed to beat people down instead of lift people up," the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told CNN.
"Frankly, when you look at what he's been tweeting today directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we've seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be -- his Twitter account should be suspended.”
Harris saidTrump’s latest tweets, in which he called the whistleblower “close to a spy,” is evidence that he is “irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people.”
“The privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him," she added.
When asked if she thought suspending Trump’s Twitter account could be seen as the tech giant silencing Trump’s free speech, Harris doubled down on her argument that the president should not use “his words in a way that could subject someone to harm.”
After President Trump called the impeachment inquiry against him a "coup," Kamala Harris ramped up her efforts to get his Twitter account suspended in this tweet mentioning Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey:
On this, Axios stated:
A day after urging Twitter to suspend President Trump for his combative tweets, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) urged its CEO Jack Dorsey to act Tuesday after Trump described the impeachment inquiry as a "coup."
What she's saying: Harris' latest comments build on her remarks on Anderson Cooper 360" Monday night, saying Twitter should suspend Trump's account because of his attacks on lawmakers and the whistleblower.
