Trump Tweet Censored - But Why Not Khamenei’s?

Last week, US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to issue a threat against the Minneapolis George Floyd protestors, quoting former Miami Police Chief Walter Headley, saying in part, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.” The tweet violated the platform’s rules about promoting or inciting violence, and was hidden under a gray box that viewers must click to uncover.

Twitter rules dictate: "You cannot make specific threats of violence or desire serious physical harm, death or illness to an individual or group of people."

But, when Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei compared Israeli Jews to "cancer," Twitter did not apply the rule. No gray box appeared on Khamenei's tweet depicting the destruction of Israel and the words “final solution.”

Khamenei later clarified that the expression "final solution" did not refer to the Jews, but "only" to Israel, concluding his new tweet with the textual words: "Eliminating Israel & it will happen." (VFI News)
