Protesters could be shot: Trump's tweet marked to violate anti-violence rules

After the brutal murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis, protests raged and some of the demonstrators stormed the third station of the police administration as the fires spread and everything escalated into further destruction and riots.

President Trump reacted to all that by calling the protesters "THUGS", and even suggested military intervention, adding that violence could escalate if it is not prevented in time. This was announced by Trump on Twitter and his tweet was flagged as "glorifying violence." Twitter said that Trump violated the rules against violence because Trump mentioned that in order to prevent the spread of violence, the protesters could even be shot.
