The social networking site Twitter hid one of President Donald Trump's tweets early Friday morning.
"This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence," Twitter noted.
"However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible," the president's favorite social networking site added.
In the tweet in question, Trump referred to protesters as thugs and said, "when the looting starts, the shooting starts."
