North Korea considers Trump tweet declaration of war

North Korea considers Trump tweet declaration of war”

The first @Policy tweet contained a link to an NPR story which contained the Trump tweet and described how, in the eyes of North Korea's foreign minister Ri Yong Ho, Trump's remarks amounted to a declaration of war.

North Korea's foreign minister says President Trump's tweets about the Korean nation amount to a declaration of war and that under worldwide law, his country can legally shoot down US military planes - even if they're not in North Korea's airspace.

On Sept. 23, Trump tweeted, "Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" The tweet came as the latest in a series of escalating remarks traded between the USA and nuclear-armed North Korea.

"We have not declared war on North Korea and frankly the suggestion of that is absurd", said Sanders.

Twitter reserved the right under its existing policy to remove content and disable accounts that posted violent threats or harassment, and ever since Mr Trump began campaigning for the presidency, many had asked how some of his more rapacious tweets had not run afoul of this policy.

Twitter has never acknowledged publicly that Trump has violated any of its guidelines - it rarely even acknowledges Trump's tweets. Users are not allowed to "incite or engage in the harassment of others" or "promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease". Any accounts that engage in such behaviour may be removed or subject to temporary suspension, it says.

A company spokesman said Monday that it takes into account "newsworthiness" and potential public interest when deciding whether or not a particular tweet violates the company's rules for appropriate conduct.

Twitter's comments about special factors appear to conflict with statements the company made in July when it said Trump's account is accorded no special privilege just because he is the president. No real surprise there, but the language in at least one of his tweets generated enough user backlash to force the company to respond publicly on Monday about how its terms of service are applied. The company said that it has "long been internal policy" and that it will soon update its public-facing rules to reflect it. "We need to do better on this, and will", the tweets continued. We continue to seek a peaceful denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
