Last November Donald Trump announced that he is running for the Republican nomination for president in 2024. In the weeks that have followed he has done nothing to advance his candidacy except to post rancid comments attacking his enemies (especially Special Counsel Jack Smith) on his Twitter ripoff, Truth Social,...

Donald Trump has violated Twitter’s terms of service God knows how many times.

Trump looks for another distraction using the Twitter fact-check of his misinformation, hunting for some lawfare disruption, even as he withholds economic forecasts.
