(FreedomBeacon.com)- Over the weekend, a Twitter user posted a copy of the video former President Trump had uploaded to his former Twitter account on January 6, 2021, urging the rioters at the Capital to go home.
The one-minute video was quickly deleted by Twitter shortly after the former President had posted it, allegedly for violating Twitter’s terms of service.
In the video released on January 6, Trump reiterated that the election was stolen, he won in a landslide, “and everyone knows it.” Trump then urged the rioters to go home, adding “we have to have peace. We have to have law and order.” He called for respect for law enforcement and said he didn’t want to see anyone hurt.
Telling the rioters “we love you” and “you’re very special,” Trump commiserated with how they felt but urged them to “go home in peace.”
The user “@ProducerJMAN” posted the video Saturday afternoon, tweeting that nobody got to see the video when Trump initially posted it because “Twitter took it down 5 minutes” later.

Releasing a statement Saturday night, the former president included a link to @ProducerJMAN’s tweet and demanded to know why Twitter took the video down so quickly after Trump initially posted it on January 6. He wanted to know why the “political hacks” from the January 6 select committee aren’t talking about the video.
After Twitter deleted the video, it explained that due to the “unprecedented and ongoing violent situation” at the Capitol, Twitter was removing three of Trump’s tweets from earlier in the day “for repeated and severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy.”
