X Restricted Popular Trump War Room Account DURING Presidential Debate

June 28th, 2024 11:04 AM

Et tu, Elon? X restricted one of former President Donald Trump’s campaign accounts during the CNN 2024 presidential debate Thursday.

X users reported finding warning labels when they attempted to view the “Trump War Room” account within 20 minutes of the first 2024 presidential debate between Trump and President Joe Biden.

In response to this, Dan Schneider, the vice president of MRC Free Speech America, went so far as to say that “the radicals embedded within X fumbled worse than Joe Biden last night.” He added, “It is outrageous that a social media company would censor a political candidate, especially in the middle of one of the most important moments for voters to decide who they want to vote for.”

Users who attempted to view the Trump War Room account were met with a warning label:

"Caution: This account is temporarily restricted[.] You're seeing this warning because there has been some unusual activity from this account. Do you still want to view it?" It’s unclear exactly why the issue occurred, but it was reportedly resolved within an hour.

Trump communications aid Bobby Levy posted a screenshot of the same notice appearing on his own account, asking: “Hey @elonmusk, what was this about literally the second the debate started?”
