Trump’s Rogue US Regime Murders Syrians Defending their Homeland

Evil animal Donald “Dr. Strangelove” Trump, who broke rogue US regime record from inauguration to war crimes.

The rogue US regime of the evil animal and fake swamp drainer Donald J. Trump has struck again. At around 2400, 8 February, the war criminal Obama cum Trump coalition targeted 10 positions of Syrian Arab Army soldiers and affiliated militias between the villages of Khsham and al Tabyia in Deir Ezzor countryside.  These Syrian military forces were defending Syrians within their national borders, defending Syrians and the homeland within their legal, national borders.  Scores were murdered, dozens were injured, and material damage was immense.

The Central Command (CENTCOM) of the rogue US regime outrageously issued a public statement, using Newspeak to claim its deadly, atrocious attacks on Syrian forces were in “self-defense.”  Can a burglar illicitly, criminally, enter your house, murder your family, decree that you provoked him after which he arrogant asserts his “non-negotiable right to act in self-defense.”

US strikes in Syria may be lawful if Syria consents to the use of force in their territory.  If Syria does not consent, the strikes would violate international law, unless the US demonstrates that the strikes were taken in self-defense.  — Sarah Knuckey, international lawyer and Professor at Columbia Law School

Rogue US regime CENTCOM lies in its public statement.

There is no Cessation of Hostilities agreement between Syria and the rogue US regime.  Syria has consistently condemned the criminal aggression of the US and its underling coalition of terror states.  There is no “agreed-upon Euphrates River de-confliction line;” the only agreement is the US one the US signed for US troops in Syria. The rogue US regime has no “SDF partners.”  The fraudulent Syrian Democratic Forces is a creation of the US:  An international foreign mercenary militia composed of international human garbage, and a small number of separatist Ziokurd incompetent, traitor-losers.  War criminal Obama had to put this gang of thugs together, because individual wetworkers could not be beheaded, indefinitely, without losing that sociopathic employment pool.  War criminal Trump has expanded, exponentially, these killers (anyone really believes that the Pentagon lost $800 million, through incompetency?  That money is payroll for hired assassins.).

“Then we just bombarded the shit out of it [Raqqa].” “I’ve literally done nothing in my life but jack off before I came here.” — American terrorist & human garbage.

The rogue US regime bipartisanly created al Qaeda, created ISIS, created the terrorist SDF.  No US military base has a right to be in the SAR.  US presence there is a breach of International Law, per the post-WWII Geneva Treaties, to which the US is a hypocritical signatory.

Yesterday’s slaughter of Syrian troops, by American illegals was not the first time the US committed a massacre of Syrians defending their homeland from foreign invaders.  In September 2016, Barack Obama rescued al Qaeda/ ISIS by ‘accidentally’ massacring 83 SAA troops in al Tharda mountain, near the Deir Ezzor airport.  Trump began his war crimes against Syria just 13 days after taking the oath of the presidency, when he bombed two bridges in al Raqqa, ravaging infrastructure that supplied water to the city of 800,000 civilians.  Trump has exceeded Obama’s atrocities against Syria, helping to make al Qaeda great, again. It was Trump who intentionally bombed Syrian soldiers, 10 April 2017.  It was Trump who followed fake news! CNN’s criminal lies from Brit terrorist embedded with al Nusra in Khan Sheikhoun, to bomb Syrian Arab Army soldiers defending their homeland from foreign invaders.

Terrorist UK national illegally in Syria was source of GB hoax in Khan Sheikhoun

This is Col. Ryan Dillon, the head of the rogue US regime Operation Inherent Resolve, a subsect of CENTCOM.  The Department of Defense has called him “infamous,” and pretends that he spends his time in Baghdad (the US satrap) or Kuwait (of incubator babies infamy).  It is likely that he is an illegal in Syria, as the various foreign assassins — such as the self-named  jack off and junkie Brace Belden — require some type of direction.

Ryan Dilllon, colonel of the rogue US regime and head of OIRSpox.

Dillon has recently outted the plans of the US to ethnically cleanse al Raqqa of Syrian Arabs.  On the day that the rogue US regime again bombed Syrian soldiers, he tweeted a report from Reuters — gloating about the obliteration of al Raqqa by the US and its foreign mercenary militia — which complained about 60,000 Syrians reported to be returning home.

Reuters, the UN mafia, and the rogue US regime try to dissuade Syrian Arabs from returning to al-Raqqa.

Panos Moumtzis, UN Ass. Secretary-General — whose boss recently demanded that Syria be referred to the ICC, for defending itself against foreign pathogens — ejaculated hysterically and in fear mongering fashion, that “the number of unexploded ordnance in Raqqa is something that we have never seen before. Extreme. Every house, every room, every inch of the city.”  Somehow, the gang was completely ignorant to Russian sappers having cleansed almost 1,000 hectares of explosives left behind in liberated Aleppo December 2016 — left behind by those wonderfully moderate terrorists. Somehow, the humanitarian diplomat was also kept in the dark over the more than 150 million square meters de-mined by Russian and Syrian sappers in Deir Ezzor city, September 2017.

The rogue US regime continues to slaughter with impunity, and with the depravity of killers fueled by Captagon.

The Bloomberg Rogue’s Gallery Billionaire’s Index

The Bloomberg Rogue’s Gallery Billionaire’s Index

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

It’s a daily index of the world’s 500 richest individuals, Bloomberg saying their net worth is “updated at the close of every trading day” on Wall Street.

The latest figures are as of December 28, nearly year end 2017. Collectively, the richest billionaires never had things better, becoming $1 trillion richer in 2017, fourfold last year’s gain – a 23% increase in the past 12 months.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos gained most, his wealth increasing by $34.2 trillion to an obscene $100 billion.

Bill Gates (No. 2) and Warren Buffett (No. 3) ranked right behind him. Other well-known figures include Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg (No. 5), Charles and David Koch (co-Nos. 13 and 14), three Walton family members (co-Nos. 14, 15, and 16), Rupert Murdoch (No. 89), Google’s Eric Schmidt (No. 98), George Soros (way-underestimated at No. 198), and Ross Perot (No. 475).

Michael Bloomberg wasn’t on his own index. Forbes estimates his net worth at $49 billion as of near-year end 2017.

The 500 billionaires comprising Bloomberg’s index have a combined net worth of $5.3 trillion, up from $4.4 trillion last year.

Today’s super-rich have more concentrated wealth than any time since America’s Gilded Age of robber barons.

A Credit Suisse report found that the world’s richest 1% controls over half the world’s wealth at about $140 trillion, more than sevenfold current US GDP – the figure likely way-underestimated to prevent it looking even more obscene.

The world’s 3.5 billion poorest individuals have little or nothing, struggling daily to survive.

A previous article discussed outrageous wealth disparity in America, a  study showing the nation’s 400 richest individuals with more total wealth than the bottom 64%.

America’s three richest billionaires are wealthier than the bottom 50%. The bottom 1% of Americans have a negative net worth of $196 billion. The top 1% have a combined net worth of $33.4 trillion.

Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet own more wealth than 63 million US households – 160 million people.

America’s wealthiest billionaires are as rich as 70 million US households – 178 million people.

Billionaires comprising Forbes’ 400 have more wealth than 64% of the US population – 204 million people.

One-fifth of US households have zero or negative net worth. Over 30% of Black households and 27% of Latino ones have no wealth or they’re underwater.

Wealth estimates likely way-understate the true level of concentrated wealth with so much of it offshored in tax havens or hidden in legal trusts.

Super-rich individuals have lawyers and accountants to shelter their wealth, enabling them to avoid paying their fair share of taxes.

The great GOP tax cut heist assures increasing inequality further, a bonanza for corporate predators and the super-rich, nightmarish for America’s most disadvantaged with planned cuts in vital social programs coming.

Former US Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis once said “(w)e can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”

Rogue State Saudi Arabia Peace Advocate Iran

Rogue State Saudi Arabia Vilifies Peace Advocate Iran

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Israel and the Saudis (now best of friends) are the region’s leading aggressors and human rights abusers.

At a Rome, Italy Mediterranean Dialogues/Beyond Turmoil conference, addressing a region referred to as “the epicenter of international disorder…synonymous with conflicts, political instability, terrorism, and” refugee crisis conditions, urging the creation of “a positive agenda,” Saudi foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir focused on demonizing Iran. 

Claiming Iranian “negative influence throughout the region” is clear to see turned truth on its head, along with ignoring Saudi high crimes in Yemen, supporting ISIS and other regional terrorist groups, and ruthless human rights abuses against its own people.

Jubier recited a litany of Big Lies, saying “(s)ince 1979, Iran has been the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism.

False! The dishonor applies to America, runner-up dishonor to NATO, Israel and the Saudis, the world’s leading rogue states – Iranian policies world’s apart from their deplorable aggression and other human rights abuses.

Jubeir: Iran “harbors and facilitates the movement of terrorists. (It) established Hezbollah in Lebanon, using it to launder money and smuggle drugs.”

Utter rubbish!

Representing Iran in Rome, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said he preferred not engaging in “Saudi bashing.” 

Jubeir’s disinformation and Big Lies left him no choice, saying Riyadh “rejected every ceasefire effort in Syria, in Lebanon.” 

“Who supported ISIS, hoping they would overthrow the government of Syria in three weeks? Who was behind an entire blockade of Qatar?”

“Who tried to force the prime minister of Lebanon out of office?” 

“We believe all countries need to live together, work together, but some people are trying to exclude us.”

Representing Russia, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said “(w)e have been raising the issue of Saudi Arabia and Iran differences many times. They should start talking. It’s really unfortunate.”

Riyadh remains hostile to Iran, conspiring with Israel against the country, eager for war and regime change. Maybe Trump will accommodate them ahead.

Separately, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini attending the conference said the Iran nuclear deal won’t be renegotiated to please Washington.

It’s “finalized in a way that actually contains so many provisions and so many elements of control with the most intrusive system of verification…on every single aspect of nuclear activities. So anyone that thinks about renegotiating one chapter or another paragraph or line simply does not” understand how carefully the deal was constructed, two years of hard work to complete it.

In Tehran on Saturday, Iranian Armed Forces Deputy Chief of Staff of Staff General Massoud Jazayeri rejected efforts by Washington to negotiate on its missile capabilities.

“Our country’s defense prowess, as the main deterrent against the enemies of the Islamic Revolution, will always be on the path to progress,” he said.

Its entirely legal military capabilities aren’t open for negotiation with any nations, notably nuclear armed and dangerous America and Israel, partners in each other’s high crimes.

WATCH: Rogue Cop Drives Car Onto Sidewalk, Nearly Mows Down Small Child


New York, NY — An internal investigation has been launched after multiple videos have surfaced this week showing an NYPD police officer behaving recklessly and endangering multiple innocent lives, including children—by dangerously barrelling down a sidewalk—in his police cruiser.

On Wednesday afternoon, in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn, an NYPD police vehicle is recorded driving onto the sidewalk. The car plows down the busy sidewalk as pedestrians scramble to jump out of the way. As the video shows, a father is seen pulling his child out of the way of the vehicle as it nearly crushes him.

According to, a police source confirmed that the officer continued to the NYPD’s 66 Precinct using his lights and sirens on 16th Avenue and 59th Street. He then backed the vehicle into an “angle-parking spot” used for police vehicles and walked into the building.

Because he simply walked into the building, and because it was the police station, we can assume that the “emergency” this cop will likely claim he was responding to was most likely minor, if real at all. The internal investigation is reportedly determining the nature of the response given this cop’s dangerous and reckless driving.

Given the fact that New Yorkers just experienced a horrific terror attack in which a man killed multiple people and wounded several others by plowing over them on a bike path, this officer’s careless operation of his vehicle becomes that much more abhorrent.

As TFTP has previously reported, New York cops are no strangers to using their police status and blue privilege to break traffic laws for convenience.

In a video submitted to us from an anonymous source in September, we see this blue privilege in action in New York and the result is nothing short of infuriating. If the average person wants to purchase a coffee at Starbucks, they, like everyone else, would have to park in a legal parking spot and then go inside—but not if you are a cop.

As the video begins, we see three NYPD police officers whose desire for coffee outweighed their concern for other people trying to drive on the road. Unconcerned with finding a parking spot, these officers simply parked their car in the middle of the road.

Had this been a rural area or a less busy street, perhaps it wouldn’t have been as insulting. However, this was a very busy street and police could not have cared less about creating a massive traffic problem by blocking an entire lane of traffic. After all—they had to get their Starbucks.

As the man filming shows, the officers are not responding to a call or an emergency and are only stopping for coffee. They clearly felt that their coffee was more important than all the other motorists trying to get to work or drop kids off at school or merely trying to drive somewhere without sitting in a senseless traffic jam caused by cops.

But the abuse of power and blue privilege doesn’t stop at coffee, it’s used for pizza too.

As TFTP reported earlier this month, in a gross abuse of power, a New York cop was caught on video blocking a bus stop—with his emergency lights engaged—to get pizza. Luckily, there was a vigilant citizen there to catch this peace officer on video as he broke the law to enjoy his lunch.

The embarrassed cop was shut down and subsequently fled with his tail between his legs in a fit of shame.

In spite of reporting this cop’s unlawful behavior, it appears that he and the team of cops who caused a traffic jam for their coffee have faced no punishment. We can only assume that the reckless cop who nearly plowed down children to reach his “emergency” will receive a similar response from superiors.

Saudi Arabia: Reinventing a Rogue State

Saudi Arabia: Reinventing a Rogue State

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Leave to the NYT, claiming an emerging Arab Spring in the kingdom under crown prince Mohammad bin Salman (MBS), a ruthless character. More on him below.

The 2011 Arab Spring was made in the USA – its aim to replace unpopular despots with new ones Washington controls. Real spring never bloomed, just the illusion of change for the better, pure deception, the idea behind making scheme work.

Saudi Arabia is the Arab world’s most ruthless dictatorship, a despotic crime family owning a nation, masquerading as legitimate governance. 

It’s notorious for public beheadings, whippings, torture, political imprisonments, sponsoring terrorism, wars of aggression and other lawless actions.

Despotic rule is absolute, no opposition tolerated, no civil or human rights afforded ordinary Saudis – no speech, media or academic freedoms, nor right of assembly, association, internal movement, foreign travel, or religion.

No right to choose their government or have easy access to education, healthcare, public housing, legal services or social ones. Political parties are banned. So are collective bargaining rights and Internet access.

Arbitrary arrests and detentions are commonplace. So are state-sponsored kidnappings and disappearances – due process and judicial fairness denied. Torture and other abuses substitute.

MBS supports ISIS and other terrorist groups. He’s responsible for waging naked aggression on Yemen, massacring civilians, creating an epic disaster.

Leave it to the NYT to reinvent Saudi Arabia under his coming leadership, the task assigned to pseudo-journalist Thomas Friedman. His commentaries are shallow, deceptive, arrogant, misguided, and worthless reading.

Case in point is his absurd claim about a Saudi Arab Spring, saying “(t)he most significant reform process underway anywhere in the Middle East today is in” the kingdom.

“The crown prince has big plans to bring back a level of tolerance to his society.” Can any thinking person accept this rubbish as journalism the way it should be? No responsible editor would touch it. Times editors featured it.

MBS is as despotic and ruthless as previous Saudi rulers, including his father king Salman. Friedman interviewed MBS, praised his arrest of hundreds of princes, ministers and business figures, a ruthless power grab, solidifying his upcoming rule left unexplained.

According to London’s Daily Mail, “American mercenaries are torturing Saudi elite rounded up by new crown prince – and billionaire Prince Alwaleed was hung upside down ‘just to send a message,’ ” others mistreated the same way.

Lebanese President Michel Aoun said Blackwater USA mercenaries are involved in torturing them – MBS’ notion of instituting “moderate, open Islam” – keeping things like they’ve always been in the kingdom, as brutal and lawless.

Friedman accepted his willful deception about what’s happening in the kingdom without explaining otherwise. MBS’ so-called anti-corruption drive is cover for his real objective – solidifying power, eliminating potential threats to his rule once his father steps down.

MBS disgracefully called Iran’s “supreme leader…the new Hitler of the Middle East,” not a whimper of truth from Friedman, failing to denounce the Big Lie – instead saying “I, for one, am rooting for him to succeed in his reform efforts” – the kind assuring continued Saudi ruthlessness internally and abroad.

Friedman gives journalism a bad name. The Times has a stable of others like him. What they suppress is far more important than so-called news and information they report.

‘US State Department going rogue, agrees to work with countries that use child soldiers’

In a confidential US State Department memo, reported first by Reuters, Rex Tillerson reportedly breached the Child Soldiers Prevention Act when he decided in June to exclude Afghanistan, Iraq, and Myanmar from a list of states known to employ child soldiers.

RT:  Why do you think Rex Tillerson decided to take Afghanistan, Iraq, and Myanmar off the list of countries using child soldiers? Does this make it easier for the US to cooperate with the militaries of these countries?

Jennifer Breedon: It does make it (easier), but unfortunately Rex Tillerson in his capacity of secretary of state has actually been directly going against President Trump in a lot of the things he stated. One such thing – he stated many times in his platform…about the stand against these countries that are utilizing child soldiers, and we’re not supposed to be able to provide military support or even training.

But essentially if we allow military training of countries that we know have child soldiers, we’re essentially helping to train those very children that have become child soldiers. We have seen this time and time again, where President Trump has stated something in his foreign policy and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has gone against it. I don’t know if this is some kind of stance, or if he is just sort of laughing behind the President of the US, but it’s really showing a destabilization from the US foreign policy standpoint.

One such example – and this correlates directly with the child soldiers – is the UN speech. President Trump gave a UN speech in September of this year, talking about the self-determination of nations and how he wanted to go against certain people that were proxies, tied to the Iranian regime. Regardless of the stance, Rex Tillerson went completely against everything Trump said. He helped the PMF (Popular Mobilization Forces) and the Hashd al-Shaabi in Iraq, and he has continued to do this almost in direct defiance of President Trump.

RT:   Why did Tillerson make this decision, despite the State Department acknowledging those countries use children in their armed forces?

JB: And that’s the worst part, because the head of the State Department, essentially the head of our entire US foreign policy, Tillerson has an obligation to listen and to utilize the people within the State Department that have been there, and to adhere to their reports, and to what they have said. Unfortunately, it seems like he’s kind of going rogue on this and just thinks that he can do better.

This is the guy who was a businessman – he worked for Exxon – and he’s done all kinds of deals with nations. So if Rex Tillerson is somebody who is only looking at money, and who cares more about money – whether that would be US military contracts or other things with these countries – then human rights of children that are being forced to become child soldiers to take part in these violent battles, then we have a real problem – when the leader of foreign policy cares more about these military or financial deals than he does the human lives of these people.

RT:   Can we assume there is some kind of internal split within the US State Department? How far could this go?

JB: Absolutely. I think that’s been a consistent problem at the State Department, and with this new information unfolding, we’re going to see that more, that there is a split. One of the most important things for any nation – especially a powerful nation – is that there is unification among the people in power and among the leadership.

You’ve seen a split now: you have top State Department officials coming out and disagreeing with Tillerson’s decision to arm these child soldiers. We’ve seen this before in the State Department when they’ve written letters, they have expressed their disconcerting feelings about what the department, what the secretary of state is doing.

So not only is there a split within the State Department, but there is also a very heavy, deep partisan split within the US and a split between President Trump himself and Tillerson. So Rex Tillerson seems to be splitting with not only the president, but his very own State Department, which he is opposed to adhere to, and listen to some of their reports.

RT:   The US State Department spokeswoman claimed some of the countries had only one report of a child soldier. Does that make it reasonable to remove them?

JB: It depends on the situation – I always say this. I am somebody who is a human rights attorney, and as such we always have to look at the situation. For example, there are some countries – such as Afghanistan and others – where terrorism from the Taliban and others have become so bad that it is mainstream. And there are some people that are maybe 16-17 years old that choose to put their studies on hold and with their parents’ consent want to go and fight in the military. Under legal terms, they would be considered child soldiers.

Again, if this is the one instance that you’re looking at, where this was a child that was between 16, 17 years old that wanted to help because the village was unable to live in, then that is a very different situation, than if there were many things happening or this was a six-year-old child that has been forced into military combat. So, as you stated, if there is one – it depends on the situation. If we look at it reasonably, rather than just black and white saying “there is one instance, we’ll never do business with you,” or “what is that one instance?” That is what we need to see more often in the State Department is – what is the instance; can we help these countries?

Philadelphia Cop Held Until Trial After Threatening Kids of Rogue Baltimore Detective

A Baltimore detective and Philadelphia patrol officer allegedly teamed up to sell heroin and cocaine seized from the streets, but their partnership turned hostile after one was arrested, prosecutors say.

Prosecutors urged a federal judge Friday to detain Philadelphia Officer Eric Troy Snell until trial after they said he threatened the children of Baltimore Detective Jemell Rayam.

Snell was recorded on the phone saying he would “keep an eye” on Rayam’s children after the Baltimore detective was arrested, prosecutors said.

“This was an explicit reference,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Derek Hines said, “that he would hurt his children, and that causes us grave concerns.”

Snell’s defense attorney argued that the phrase was “susceptible to multiple interpretations.” Still, he couldn’t persuade U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Coulson to release Snell to his mother’s home in Philadelphia.

Coulson ordered Snell held until his trial in U.S. District Court in Baltimore.

“One interpretation, as argued by the government, is extremely concerning,” Coulson said.

Hines also said Snell was a threat because federal agents who raided his home found several guns, including an assault rifle with the serial number removed. They also found drug packaging such as plastic bags with some powder, and chemical testing continues on the powder.

Defense attorney David Solomon said he hadn’t seen the evidence yet but suspected there are innocent explanations. He characterized as “far-flung” the accusations that Snell had conspired to sell heroin and cocaine Rayam seized from Baltimore’s streets.

The case was all based on Rayam, whose word couldn’t be trusted, Solomon said.

Snell was the latest police officer charged in a far-reaching drug case brought against eight members of an elite Baltimore police unit. The officers are accused of robbing people of drugs and cash, then selling some of the drugs. Two officers, including Rayam, admitted to helping convict drug dealers who sold heroin throughout the Baltimore suburbs.

Trump knocks 'rogue' Twitter staffer for briefly deleting @realDonaldTrump

President Trump made up for lost time by launching into a massive tweetstorm Friday morning, the day after his account was temporarily deactivated by what Twitter says was an outgoing customer support worker.

The president boasted that his influence on social media was significant enough that a rogue Twitter employee wanted to silence him.

On Thursday night, Twitter announced through its Twitter Government account, which provides updates on governments and elections, that Trump’s account had been “inadvertently deactivated due to human error” by a Twitter employee for 11 minutes, and had since been restored. The online news service said it would continue investigating the incident and would take steps to make sure it does not happen again.

Twitter then announced that the employee responsible for taking down the account was on his or her last day with the company — suggesting that the action was not inadvertent. Twitter said it is conducting a full internal review of the incident.

After chiming in on the Twitter account controversy, Trump fired off a series of tweets about former interim Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile’s claim that Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic primary against Bernie Sanders. The president railed against the Justice Department for not investigating Clinton, his former political foe, days after special counsel Robert Mueller charged three former Trump campaign aides with various crimes.

Trump also vowed revenge against the so-called Islamic State after the group claimed credit for the Manhattan vehicle attack earlier this week. In his tweets, Trump called the suspect a “Degenerate Animal.”

Though Trump’s Twitter feed is back online, its temporarily deactivation might be a cause for concern about the security of the president’s account, which he uses to announce policies, attack opponents and influence supporters.

When reached for comment Friday morning, Emily Horne, the head of global policy communications at Twitter, told Yahoo News, “We won’t have anything beyond the tweets we issued last night.”

Twitter Government released the following update that afternoon:

As expected, the online reaction was split between liberals who joked about how much they appreciated the employee’s action and conservatives who argued that their joy demonstrates a disregard for freedom of speech among the left.

In the past, Twitter has removed accounts of high-profile conservatives with ties to Trump, such as right-wing provocateurs Milo Yiannopoulos and Roger Stone, for violating its terms of service. But it does not appear to be common for one employee to single-handedly disable a famous person’s account without the company’s input.

Twitter was criticized in September for deciding not to deactivate Trump’s account after he published a tweet that many interpreted as a violent threat against the people of North Korea. The company responded that it holds all accounts to the same standards but that it also takes into consideration whether a particular tweet is newsworthy or of public interest.
