Kamala Harris Tells Twitter to Suspend Trump’s Account
“The President’s tweets and his behaviors about this are just further evidence of the fact that he uses his power in a way that is designed to beat people down instead of lift people up,” said Sen. Kamala Harris in an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN.
“Frankly, when you look at what he’s been tweeting today directed at the whistleblower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we’ve seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be — his Twitter account should be suspended.”
Harris said Trump’s tweets are evidence that he is “irresponsible with his words in a way that could result in harm to other people.”
“The privilege of using those words in that way should probably be taken from him,” she added.
“If he’s not going to exercise self-restraint, then, perhaps, there should be other mechanisms in place to make sure that his words do not, in fact, harm anyone,” continued Kamala Harris. “And that’s my point. What we want to make sure is that his words do not actually result in harm to anyone.”
