Twitter has prevented the liking, replying, and retweeting of a taped statement that President Donald Trump tweeted about the rioters supporting his election claims who violently clashed with Capitol Police at, and stormed, the U.S. Capitol. Under the tweet, Twitter has placed a label which reads: “This claim of election fraud is disputed, and this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence”.

It should be noted, however, that users can still share the tweet in question if it is in the form of a “Quote Tweet.”

For months, the social media platform has labeled Trump’s tweets spreading controversial allegations of election fraud, but users were still allowed to interact with these tweets normally.

In the video, Trump—while continuing to claim the election was “fraudulent”—urged rioters to “go home,” but what has drawn controversy is that he tried to sympathize with the rioters, saying “We love you” and “You’re very special.”

This video came hours after violence began to break out.

“I know your pain, I know you’re hurt,” Trump said in the video. “We had an election that was stolen from us, it was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side.”

“But you have to go home now, we have to have peace,” he added. “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 said in the video.

“It’s a very tough period of time. 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. We have to have peace,” he said.

“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 and peace.”

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
