Make America Great Again by revoking the Twitter account that President Donald Trump has and continues to use as a personal/political platform to incite hatred in the American people and the world, to harass and deride opposition, and promote false information. Trump's Twitter account postings are in direct violation of Twitter rules and regulations, as shown below, and his account should be terminated in compliance of these rules and respect to other Twitter users.

Trump's use of Twitter is abusive. His Tweets frequently provoke segregation via race, religion and freedom of speech. He perpetuates unfounded conspiracy theories as truth. Trump encourages confrontation, sometimes physical, between American citizens, as well as foreign citizens and their governments.

We need only read the overwhelming negative responses to Trump's Twitter posts to gain a clear understanding of the scale of resistance and incited hatred Trump provokes with his controversial, charged Twitter statements.

The current president of the United States is also abusing the Twitter platform to publicly undermine, slander and harass politicians, corporations, other Twitter users and public figures. As well, Trump's Twitter statements, backed by his presidential position of power, can be, and are most often, interpreted as actual threats to tens of millions of Americans and world citizens, as revealed by tremendous Twitter response to these posts.

We are asking the public to unite your voice and encourage Twitter to remove Trump's account for irresponsible use and violation of the Twitter user Abusive Behavior policy.

Examples of abuse by Twitter account Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump:

"How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!"

"Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show."

"Maybe the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN should have their own rally. It would be the biggest of them all!"

"The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!"

"The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

"I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.He's not smart enough to run for president!"

Below is Twitter's (partial) rules on abuse and key infractions are highlighted in italics:

Abusive Behavior
We believe in freedom of expression and in speaking truth to power, but that means little as an underlying philosophy if voices are silenced because people are afraid to speak up. In order to ensure that people feel safe expressing diverse opinions and beliefs, we do not tolerate behavior that crosses the line into abuse, including behavior that harasses, intimidates, or uses fear to silence another user’s voice.

Any accounts and related accounts engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension.

Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.

Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include:

if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others;

if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats;

if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and

if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.

Hateful conduct: You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease. We also do not allow accounts whose primary purpose is inciting harm towards others on the basis of these categories.
