Trump's tweet said: "These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!"

The social media giant's notice said that the tweet "violated the Twitter rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the tweet to remain accessible."Twitter's policy of adding a warning to tweets that break its rules when it comes to major public figures, instead of deleting them outright, was unveiled in mid-2019. The notice means that other Twitter users can not like, reply to, or retweet Trump's post. However, a retweet is still possible with a comment attached to it.

And... DP will be displeased. Finally.. Good! Folks, USE the 'report' function on Twitter.
