Twitter disables Trump video tribute to Floyd

San Francisco (Web Desk): Twitter Inc has disabled US President Donald Trump’s campaign tribute video to George Floyd on its platform.


Twitter said the video on the president’s campaign account was affected by its copyright policy.

The clip, which is a collation of photos and videos of protest marches and instances of violence in the aftermath of Floyd’s death, has Trump speaking in the background.

Floyd’s death last week after a fatal encounter with a police officer has led to nationwide protests. In widely circulated video footage, a white officer was seen kneeling on Floyd’s neck as Floyd gasped for air and repeatedly groaned, “I can’t breathe,” before passing out.
