The inaccessible video on Twitter is still up on President Donald Trump’s YouTube channel and includes pictures of George Floyd, whose racial killing by the Minneapolis police sparked widespread protests across America. “Per our copyright policy, we respond to valid copyright complaints sent to us by a copyright owner or their authorized representatives,” Twitter said in a statement. It did not reveal who made the complaint. “Twitter and @Jack are censoring this uplifting and unifying message from President Trump after the #GeorgeFloyd tragedy.” wrote the Trump campaign team on Twitter.
The three minute and 45-second clip contain photos and videos of peaceful marches and police officers hugging protesters along with few scenes of arson and vandalism. Last month, Twitter put labels on two of Donald Trump’s tweets after fact-checking and recently demoted his tweet against protesters for “glorifying violence”.
