Hillary Clinton’s Response To Trump’s Twitter Ban Is An Epic Retweet – Thebritishjournal

As the news of President Donald Trump’s permanent ban from Twitter came on Friday, Jan. 8, a lot of celebs took to Twitter to celebrate. The news came after the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. People flooded Twitter with reactions to the ban, and one of the wittiest tweets was Hillary Clinton’s response to Trump’s Twitter ban.

In response to the ban, Clinton dug back through her old tweets and found a gem to retweet with a sly comment. In the original tweet from June 9, 2016, Clinton responded to a post from Trump by telling him to delete his account. On Jan. 8, she retweeted the post with a checkmark.

ICYMI, Twitter announced the ban of Trump in a blog post, as well as on its Twitter Safety account on Jan. 8. “After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” wrote the company. “In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly,” the blog post continued. “It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open.”
