The official Twitter account for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign appeared on Thursday to be suspended.
Mike Hahn, a social media staffer on the Trump campaign, shared a screenshot of a notice seemingly sent from Twitter informing the campaign that its “account has been locked.”
The notice stated that the campaign account had violated Twitter’s “rules against posting private information.”
The account was apparently punished for a tweet that accused Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of being a “liar” and “ripping off our country for years.”
The tweet also included a link to what Hahn said was a video related to a New York Post report published Wednesday that leveled dubious allegations against Biden and his son Hunter.
Twitter’s latest action against the Trump campaign comes amid a broader crackdown by social media platforms against efforts to share the Post report.
Trump appeared surprised by the news of his campaign account’s suspension in a Fox Business interview on Thursday morning.
“Well, I haven’t heard that, but if it is, it is,” he said. “But it’s going to all end up in a big lawsuit. And there are things that can happen that are very severe that I’d rather not see happen. But it’s probably going to have to.”
