As Twitchy told you last night, Donald Trump kicked off a feeding frenzy with this ALL-CAPS tweet to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani:
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
Needless to say, it hasn’t gone over well with a lot of people. So obviously, there’s only one thing to do now: Suspend Trump’s account. At least that’s what NBC News’ chief global correspondent Bill Neely seems to believe:
I’m sure this Tweet is violating Twitter’s rules. As a regular citizen, try posting this about someone and see what happens- I suspect your account would be suspended. Twitter? https://t.co/FxNiNBTDhV

For what it’s worth, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle is right there with him:

Members of the tweeting public are taking it upon themselves to report Trump’s tweet:
Seems undeniable he is threatening violence.

I reported it to @jack last night … it is a threat to the Iranian and US people and frightening to the entire world. His account should be suspended

I messaged twitter about it. Will be very interested to hear from them

We hate to break it to them, but if they’re waiting on Twitter to yank Trump’s account away, they’re setting themselves up for pretty crushing disappointment.
Oh my God… Lol
They're trying to get @realDonaldTrump's tweet pulled because it's too mean to Iran.

Anyone else feel like the Resistance aren’t doing themselves any favors with this?
Libs angrier about a tweet than planefuls of cash tells you everything about their priorities. Trump will have them chasing their tails for 8 years.
