Twitter suspends Trump campaign account for reportedly referencing NY Post Article
October 15, 2020
Twitter has reportedly suspended the Trump Campaign’s official Twitter account for a video referencing the bombshell New York Post report alleging Joe Biden’s son Hunter leveraged his father’s position as vice president in his foreign business dealings.
“Twitter has suspended @TeamTrump for posting a video calling Joe Biden a liar who has been ripping off our country for years, as it relates to the @nypost article. 19 days out from the election,” said the Campaign’s Mike Hahn on Twitter Thursday.
According to the Campaign, Twitter flagged the post for violating the platform’s “rules against posting private information.”
On Wednesday, shortly after the Post broke the story, Twitter and Facebook began censoring anyone who shared the article. Moreover, Twitter suspended many accounts sharing the story, including White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal Twitter.
The Post’s report included emails in which Hunter Biden allegedly connected people at Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings, where he was a board member, to his father when he was vice president.
