The four-tweet thread that President Trump sent from @POTUS, which quickly vanished from Twitter, included hints of Trump's involvement with a potential alternative platform to Twitter and other social media.

Twitter’s decision to suspend President Trump's account followed two tweets Friday afternoon that would end up being his last.

The tweets violated the company’s policy against the glorification of violence, Twitter said in a blog post, and “these two Tweets must be read in the context of broader events in the country and the ways in which the President’s statements can be mobilized by different audiences, including to incite violence, as well as in the context of the pattern of behavior from this account in recent weeks. ”

Trump’s other statement about American patriots suggested that “he plans to continue to support, empower, and shield those who believe he won the election,” Twitter said.

Twitter told CNN the company will enforce its policy against ban evasions to ensure that Trump does not circumvent his personal account's suspension.

President Trump presents a danger to the nation's domestic security and should be removed from office as quickly as possible, Democratic Rep. Jason Crow said today.

"Donald Trump is a very violent and dangerous man," Crow said, speaking on CNN this afternoon.

Twitter has suspended President Trump from its platform, the company said Friday evening.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the House is prepared to move ahead with impeachment if President Trump doesn't resign.

President Trump and his attorney Rudy Giuliani both mistakenly made calls to Republican Sen. Mike Lee as deadly riots were unfolding at the US Capitol earlier this week, a spokesperson for the senator confirmed to CNN — calls that were intended for another GOP senator the White House was frantically trying to convince to delay the counting of Electoral College votes.

Lee's spokesperson said the two calls from Trump and his attorney were intended for Sen. Tommy Tuberville, a newly elected Republican from Alabama.

Tuberville spoke with Trump for less than 10 minutes, with the President trying to convince him to make additional objections to the Electoral College vote in a futile effort to block Congress' certification of President-elect Joe Biden's win, according to a source familiar with the call.

CNN reported on Wednesday that even after Congress was reconvening that night following the riot, Trump was still urging senators to push ahead with the protest on the certification of Biden as president, according to a source familiar with the discussions.

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski is calling on President Donald Trump to resign following the riots at the Capitol on Wednesday, making her the first Republican senator to take that step.

Republican Sen. Roy Blunt, a member of GOP leadership, said an impeachment of President Trump is “not going to happen. ”
