Donald Trump's spokesperson just tweeted his deleted insurrection video. Users now want her banned too
Former President Donald Trump issued a statement ahead of his rally in Delaware, Ohio on Saturday in which he complained about Twitter having deleted the video that he recorded while his supporters stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th, 2021.
“Why did Twitter quickly take down this video that I made on January 6th, and why isn’t the Unselect Committee of political hacks talking about it?” Trump said, evidently under the false impression that he helped quell the violent insurrection that he incited in the first place.
Twitter said that it removed the video because it contained "repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy."
Trump's remarks, along with the recording, were posted on Twitter by his spokesperson Liz Harrington.
"We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side,” Trump said. “But you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt," Trump told his rioting supporters.
"There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us — from me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people," Trump continued. "We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You’re very special. You’ve seen what happens. You see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel. But go home, and go home in peace."

Users quickly fired back with reminders about what really went down on that fateful day.

This is was all a faux response, which was hours after the insurrection started. You still don\u2019t condemn the people for attacking and killing the police. Plus still spout the \u201cbig lie\u201d. Why\u2026(see photo)pic.twitter.com/WKe1LgOpYw— It\u2019s a dog\u2019s life. Woof \ud83d\udc4d\ud83d\udc36 (@It\u2019s a dog\u2019s life.

it was taken down because it was misinformation in violation of Twitter standards. It said the election was a landslide (for him), and it clearly was not. So it was false and taken down, per the rules. What part of \u201cduh\u201d\ndon\u2019t you understand?— Keith Murray (@Keith Murray) 1650757819
Literally everyone saw this traitorous insurrectionist piece of garbage\u2019s video. He had to try three times before he didn\u2019t include more language that incited violence.\n\nHe\u2019s total scum, a conman and you people are the mark. Congrats.— Scottacular (@Scottacular) 1650729226
Why is this man so shameless? I believe he has a genetic problem, being healthy physically but short on balanced genetic make-up. And people listen to him, worse still believe him. Einstein may have him in mind that time is relative, with his own belief that truth is relative.— George Ifeanyi Umeh (@George Ifeanyi Umeh) 1650717752
Others even demanded that Twitter suspend Harrington for peddling Trump's prohibited lies.
@TwitterSupport why are you allowing @realLizUSA to continue to tweet for a FORMER president who is now allowed on Twitter.— HJS (@HJS) 1650756648
