Twitter CEO Defends Trump Tweet Against Rep. Ilhan Omar

Twitter CEO Defends Trump Tweet Against Rep.

Ilhan Omar Reports say Jack Dorsey called the congresswoman due to the rising number of death threats made against her.

Omar claims the threats stem from criticism on Twitter from President Trump.

The specific tweet from the president was a 9/11 tribute video that mixed in words from Omar.

The Twitter CEO made the phone call to Omar on the same day he had a meeting with Trump over other matters.

According to 'The Washington Post,' Dorsey said that Trump's tweet didn't go against standards on the website.

A spokesman for Twitter says the site condemns death threats and all incitement to violence on its platform.

The company adds that it is talking with the Minnesota congresswoman about paths going forward.
