President Donald Trump launched a new attack on Twitter after the site tagged one of his messages with a warning it was "glorifying violence."




Trump's post had called people protesting the death of George Floyd "thugs," adding: "When the looting starts, the shooting starts."




"Twitter is doing nothing about all of the lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party. They have targeted Republicans, Conservatives & the President of the United States," tweeted Trump early Friday.




Trump on Thursday had signed an executive order targeting special legal protections enjoyed by social media companies.




The order came after Twitter started fact-checking false claims Trump had made on the platform.

President Donald Trump renewed his attacks on Twitter after the social media site tagged one of his tweets about protests in Minneapolis with a warning it was "glorifying violence."
"Twitter is doing nothing about all of the lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party. They have targeted Republicans, Conservatives & the President of the United States. Section 230 should be revoked by Congress. Until then, it will be regulated!" tweeted Trump early Friday.
Section 230 refers to a law that shields social media sites from prosecution over content posted on their platform. Trump on Thursday signed an executive order calling for regulators to look into whether it should be revoked to avoid "online censorship."
