Twitter has served a public interest notice on Donald Trump after the US president vowed to send the the National Guard troops to Minneapolis to “get the job done right” after a night of violent protests in the city.

Twitter has said that one of US President Donald Trump’s tweets on Minneapolis protests had breached its rules about “glorifying violence”.
Speaking about violent clashes following the death of a black man during an arrest, Mr Trump wrote on Twitter: “…These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen.
“Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz andtold him that the Military is with him all the way.
“Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the lootingstarts, the shooting starts. Thank you!”.
Twitter marked the tweet as a violation of its rules over glorifying violence, but noted it may be in the public’s interest for the tweet to remain accessible. 
We have placed a public interest notice on this Tweet from @realdonaldtrump.

The disturbances were sparked by Monday’s arrest and subsequent death of Mr Floyd.
Four police officers have been sacked as a video showing one of them kneeling on Mr Floyd’s neck.
