‘Trump War Room’ Twitter account goes on the attack as impeachment trial kicks off
As President Donald Trump’s second Senate impeachment trail commenced on Tuesday, the Twitter account that formerly belonged to his reelection campaign’s rapid response team posted commentary on the proceedings and criticism of congressional Democrats.
One tweet from the “Trump War Room” account issued on Tuesday afternoon targeted Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), who is presiding over Trump’s trial in his capacity as president pro tempore of the Senate.
“Imagine having a ‘trial’ where the ‘judge’ had already voted to convict the defendant?” the tweet read. “That’s what happens in banana republics, third world dictatorships and now the United States Senate. SAD!”
The “Trump War Room” account is one of the last remaining Twitter accounts affiliated with Trump and his aides that is accessible on the platform.
Twitter permanently suspended the former president’s personal account last month, as well as the @TeamTrump account used by his campaign.
