Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley slammed Twitter over their decision to permanently suspend President Donald Trump’s account, saying it is an instance of “silencing” of the kind that happens in communist China.
“Silencing people, not to mention the President of the US, is what happens in China not our country,” she tweeted, adding the hashtag #Unbelievable.
From Fox News:
Haley, who served in the Trump administration between 2017 and the end of 2018, tweeted shortly after the tech behemoth announced that it was permanently suspending the Trump account — which the 45th president has used to communicate with the country and announce policies, as well as hirings and firings.
The ban came within days of the riot at Capitol Hill, which a number of Democrats and Republicans had blamed Trump for encouraging. Twitter indicated it was within that context that the ban was being administered and shared two recent tweets as justification.
One read: “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”
The other was a tweet from Trump saying he would not attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
