Twitter considers labeling Trump tweets that violate rules


President Donald Trump talks with reporters before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Thursday, March 28, 2019, for the short trip to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

Some of President Donald Trump‘s tweets could soon come with a warning label. 

Twitter‘s head of Legal, Policy and Trust says they are considering flagging tweets that violate its rules but should not be removed because they’re in the public interest. 

Twitter is working to balance its standards while adding context to tweets from politicians and public figures that may be offensive but are important for public debate. 

Twitter’s current approach has been criticized because some say Trump’s tweets include threats and bullying, which are a violation of Twitter’s own rules.
