Trump accuses Twitter of "stifling free speech"

Twitter took down a retweet by the president that contained music from US rock band Linkin Park. This is not the first time the social media platform has disabled or removed a post from Donald Trump. Read below for more information.

  • It's not the first time President Trump is accused of using music without authorization. 
  • The president had previously used Rolling Stones song "You can't always get what you want".
  • Linkin Park as the Rolling Stones do not endorse Trump.

Trump retweeted a video posted by the White House's director of social media, Dan Scavino. The content was replaced with a notice saying: "This media has been disabled in response to a report by the copyright owner." Management company Machine Shop Entertainment, owned by the rock band issued a notice of copyright to take down the tweet.

President Trump and Twitter have been in conflict since May. Twitter has disabled many of Trump's comments due to a violation of the social media's policy against threatening violence. Twitter said Trump had violated its rules against "glorifying violence" when he advocated that Minneapolis authorities take tough action in response to the protests over the death of George Floyd.
