Former President Donald Trump responded to Twitter banning Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene by calling the platform a “disgrace to democracy.”
Trump himself was banned from the social media platform nearly one year ago.
“Twitter is a disgrace to democracy. They shouldn’t be allowed to do business in this Country,” Trump asserted.
The statement continued, “Marjorie Taylor Greene has a huge constituency of honest, patriotic, hard-working people. They don’t deserve what’s happened to them on places like low-life Twitter and Facebook.”

Trump then called for people to abandon the platforms that continue to censor his friends and supporters.
“Everybody should drop off of Twitter and Facebook. They’re boring, have only a Radical Left point of view, and are hated by everyone. They are a disgrace to our Nation,” Trump concluded. “Keep fighting, Marjorie!”
Greene’s personal account was permanently banned on Sunday for posting Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

So is Twitter now telling us the CDC isn’t credible?

The platform claimed it was Greene’s fifth “strike” for spreading “COVID-19 misinformation.”

Greene has responded to her Twitter ban on the social media platforms GETTR and Telegram. She wrote, “I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”
“When Maxine Waters can go to the streets and threaten violence on Twitter, Kamala and Ilhan can bail out rioters on Twitter, and Chief spokesman for terrorist IRGC can tweet mourning Soleimani but I get suspended for tweeting VAERS statistics, Twitter is an enemy to America and can’t handle the truth,” Greene’s statement said. “That’s fine, I’ll show America we don’t need them and it’s time to defeat our enemies.”
