The President said that "or very weak radical left mayor Jacob Frey will take action and take control of the town," or he would send the city the National guard and "make it right". Trump also wrote that "we take (the situation) under control, but when the looting starts, the shooting starts". Later on the social network Twitter has marked the message trump as violating the rules of the company about the glorification of violence. Tweet trump on Twitter is hidden, it can only be read by clicking on the administration website.

"Although in the recording there is a historical allusion, which is of concern, we decided to leave it, because the mention of the national guard as we understand it is a warning about the actions of the state. We think people should know if the authorities plan to use force," explained Zuckerberg.

He also mentioned clarifications trump that he only meant the risk of violence.

"We decided that this (subsequent) entry, which clearly does not approve of violence, also violates our policy, and her people, too, it is important to see", - said the head of Facebook. He recalled that unlike Twitter, the social network it's not using warnings before records, because it believes that such recordings you just have to remove regardless of whether they are news or not.

"Today, we communicated with the White house and explained including this policy," concluded Zuckerberg.
