On Sunday night, in the Memewars, Twitter snapped back at U.S. President Donald J. Trump, suspending a patriotic user account moments after POTUS retweeted the post to his nearly 81 million followers.
The popular account of @SeanCordicon posted a screenshot of the video, in the moment an African-American family raising a flag on their front porch, along with an encouraging line about being the calm in the storm and a Ronald Reagan quote about standing your ground.
After that account was suspended, Students for Trump, @TrumpStudents posted the video again.
Twitter doesn’t like this video being posted on their platform – they even banned the person who posted it as soon as @realDonaldTrump RT’d it!
So give it a watch and a RT!pic.twitter.com/L3av2OcXEw

In the campaign video, President Trump shares his thoughts about the American people rising above and voting for the future they deserve. “Our great civilization has come upon a moment of reckoning,” he said.
“I’m doing it because this country has given me so much and I feel so strongly that it’s my turn to give back to the country that I love. I’m doing this for the people and for the movement and we will take back this country for you and we will Make America Great Again,” said President Trump.
Last week, President Trump signed the Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship — a rule at aimed curbing discrimination and censorship by Twitter — and, hours later, his own tweet was flagged for violating Twitter rules.
