Trump twitter lies

The widower of Lori Klausutis, whose death President Trump has used to smear the MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, is asking Twitter to remove the president’s tweets on the subject.

Twitter said on Tuesday that it would not.

In a letter to Jack Dorsey, the chief executive of Twitter, last week, Timothy Klausutis said Mr. Trump had violated Twitter’s terms of service by falsely suggesting that Mr. Scarborough murdered Ms. Klausutis in 2001 when he was a Florida congressman and she was an intern in his office. Ms. Klausutis, then 28, actually died as a result of a heart condition that caused her to collapse at work and hit her head on her desk.

“An ordinary user like me would be banished from the platform for such a tweet,” Mr. Klausutis wrote in the letter, which was published on Tuesday by the New York Times opinion writer Kara Swisher, “but I am only asking that these tweets be removed.”
