Twitter: Stop Enabling Trump's Anti-Muslim Hate Speech

To be delivered to Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO

Petition Statement

Twitter has given Donald Trump a platform to spread anti-Muslim hate speech, despite a spike in anti-Muslim hate violence across the U.S.

Enough is enough. Take action immediately to shut down his account.
There are currently 12,945 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Donald Trump's bigotry hit a new low, as he retweeted several anti-Muslim videos from the deputy of Britain First, a far-right fascist party in the U.K.--drawing condemnation even from Prime Minister Theresa May.

This isn't the first time that he's used the social media platform to spread anti-Muslim rhetoric--and Twitter needs to stop pretending that Trump's hate speech doesn't have consequences.

Since Trump took office, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has recorded a nearly doubling of anti-Muslim hate crimes. And in incident after incident, we've heard anti-Muslim slogans or even simply the name "Trump" used as a rallying cry before racist attacks.

Enough is enough. Twitter can't continue allowing Trump to use its platform to encourage violence against Muslims. They need to shut down Trump's account and stop enabling his hate speech.
