Twitter Restricts President Trump's Super Bowl Ad
 
Twitter has inexplicably restricted the video of one of President Trump's Super Bowl ads which touted his success with criminal justice reform.

The restriction appears to follow backlash from liberals.

According to The Daily Caller:

Twitter restricted President Donald Trump’s Super Bowl campaign ad after he tweeted it out Sunday night, according to Trump campaign Rapid Response Director Matt Wolking.

Trump’s ad highlighted the administration’s work on criminal justice reform and featured Alice Johnson, a former federal inmate who had been serving a life sentence on non-violent drug charges until Trump granted her clemency in 2018. Twitter placed a “sensitive content” warning over the video and required users to request access to view it.

 

Twitter’s guidelines prohibit posting videos that are “excessively gory or share violent or adult content.”

“Yet again, Twitter is silencing President Trump and his campaign on their platform for putting out truthful and compelling content. The ad about Alice Johnson’s incredible story highlighted the President’s commitment to criminal justice reform and second chances for people,” Trump campaign Communications Director Tim Murtaugh told the Daily Caller.

It remains unclear how a Democrat would be treated if they decided to reform the criminal justice system.

Here is the ad in question:
