Trump warns his 75M 'American Patriots' will 'not be disrespected' as he returns to Twitter after Capitol riot kills 5

TRUMP broke his Twitter ban silence and told his 75million "American patriots" that "they will not be disrespected" after the Capitol riots.

His tweet comes as members of Congress tout possible impeachment following the violent events that led to the deaths of at least five people in Washington DC.

"The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future," Trump tweeted on Friday morning.

"They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!"

Several of Trump's latest tweets over past weeks have been removed, after violence erupted when mobs overtook the Capitol.

At least five people, including US Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick, died in the riots.

Now-removed tweets from Trump's account read: "This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules."

His Friday tweet came after Twitter temporarily suspended his account as he shared a video message during the Capitol riots on Wednesday.

Trump continued to make false, unbacked claims as he told his supporters to "go home in peace" and said "you're very special!"

TikTok, along with other platforms, removed and banned the address on Wednesday as some said it "incites violence".

Trump has been banned from other social media platforms – including Facebook and Instagram – "indefinitely," and at least until Joe Biden takes office on January 20.

On Thursday morning, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the "risks" of Trump being on the social media site "are simply too great."

"Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete," Zuckerberg said in a statement.

On Thursday night, Trump broke his Twitter silence and shared a video message where he finally admitted Joe Biden won the 2020 US Presidential Election.

In the video, Trump defended his actions to "vigorously pursue every avenue to contest the election results" after falsely making election fraud claims.

He claimed his "only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote".

Trump told his supporters that "serving as your president has been the honor of my lifetime," as he vowed "our incredible journey is only just beginning.”
