Snapchat No Longer Promoting President Trumps Account

Snapchat became the latest social media company to take action against President Donald Trump, announcing its no longer promoting his content on the platform.

Twitter in recent days has moved against Trump, shielding some of his posts from public view for allegedly “glorifying violence.”

Now Snapchat, a platform featuring short videos that are popular among Millenials and Gen Z, says its not currently promoting Trumps content on its Discover platform.

“We will not amplify voices who incite racial violence and injustice by giving them free promotion on Discover,” a spokeswoman for Snap, Snapchats parent company, said in a statement sent to news outlets on Wednesday.

“Racial violence and injustice have no place in our society and we stand together with all who seek peace, love, equality, and justice in America,” the spokesperson added.

Snap didnt identify which posts were allegedly inciting violence.

The White House didnt immediately respond to a request for comment. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had a press conference scheduled for 2 p.m.

Recent posts on Trumps page include a screenshot of a message expressing condolences after David Dorn, a retired police captain, was killed by looters in St. Louis, Miss.

A series of posts made before that shared clips and news coverage of part of Trumps June 1 speech outside the White House. The beginning shows the Republican saying: “By far, our greatest days lie ahead. Thank you very much. And now Im going to pay my respects to a very, very special place.”

Trump and top administration officials then walked through Lafayette Park to St. Johns Episcopal Church, which was damaged by rioters. It culminates in him holding a Bible in front of the church and speaking to reporters.

“We have a great country. Thats my thoughts. The greatest country in the world. We will make it even greater. It wont take long. Its not going to take long. Its coming back, its coming back strong. Itll be greater than ever before.”

Riots and protests have taken place across the United States in the past week, sparked by the death of George Floyd.
