Twitter Bans Donald Trump's Video From Being Shared Due To 'Risk Of Violence'

Donald Trump has issued a call for his 'extremist' supporters to peacefully leave the Capitol building in Washington D.C.

The video posted onto the US President's Twitter account has been restricted by the social media account.

A label has been attached underneath the video that says the post can't be commented on, retweeted or liked due to a 'risk of violence'.

Violent scenes have unfolded in Washington D.C. as protestors stormed the Capitol building and clashed with police outside.

Some have broken into the Senate and police have been in an armed standoff with some of the 'extremists'. One woman has been reportedly shot and is in a critical condition, while several police officers have also been injured.

A company spokesperson said: "In regard to the ongoing situation in Washington, D.C., we are working proactively to protect the health of the public conversation occurring on the service and will take action on any content that violates the Twitter Rules."

Facebook has also moved to restrict the video from being shared on its platform.

Facebook's Vice President of Integrity, Guy Rosen, said this 'an emergency situation' and the company is 'taking appropriate emergency measures, including removing President Trump's video'.

"We removed it because on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence," he said.

Trump said in the video that he understands the protestors' 'pain' and 'hurt' due to his unsubstantiated claimed that the 'election was stolen from us'.

He continued: "It was a landslide election and everyone knows it - especially the other side, but you have to go home now. We have to have peace, we have to have law and order, we have to respect our great people in law and order - we don't want anybody hurt.

"It's a very tough period of time, there's never been a time like this where such a thing happened where they could take it away from all of us, from me, from you, and from our country.

"This was a fraudulent election, but we can't play into the hands of these people.

"I know how you feel, but go home, and go home in peace."

Twitter has also been concerned by a tweet from the President earlier in the day that took aim at his Vice President.

Trump had reportedly asked Pence to refuse to certify the results of the electoral college vote, which was due to confirm Joe Biden as winner of the November election.

However, the VP issued a statement that explained how he would not go against the will of the people.

The President tweeted: "Mike Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!"

Twitter has also restricted that post from being commented on, retweeted or liked due to a 'risk of violence'.
