Jack Dorsey broke his silence Wednesday on Twitter's decision to permanently ban President Donald Trump. Trump was impeached by the US House of Representatives on Wednesday for "incitement of insurrection," related to last week's Capitol riots. After a clear warning we'd take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter," Dorsey said. His comments alluded to Twitter's rationale for banning Trump last week, which cited "the risk of further incitement of violence."

REUTERS/Jim Bourg/File Photo(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump has privately blamed ‘Antifa people’ for storming the U.S. Capitol last Wednesday, even though clear video and documentary evidence shows the rioters were overwhelmingly his supporters, Axios reported. Trump made the remark in a 30-minute-plus phone call Monday morning with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Axios reported bit.ly/2K4mNM6, citing a White House official and another source familiar with the call. However, McCarthy told Trump in the call, which according to Axios was tense and aggressive at times, “It’s not Antifa, it’s MAGA. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The storming of the Capitol building last week by Trump supporters delayed the certification of Biden’s election victory.
