Congressman Keith Ellison says Twitter should ban Trump

In the wake of Donald Trump‘s latest Twitter controversy in which he has been accused of sexism in derogatory comments made about Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Congressman Keith Ellison said that Twitter should ban Trump from its site.

According to Ellison, Twitter has more than enough evidence to show that Trump is a cyber bully, which is grounds for being kicked off the social media site.

“My thought is that we have long, long known that Donald Trump abuses people on social media, much like any common social media bully,” Ellison told TMZ on Thursday. “The problem is he’s been doing it and he’s never had to pay a price for it.”

“I personally think that Twitter, the company, should treat him just like any other social media harasser and snatch his account. I mean, it’s a private company; he doesn’t have a right to have a Twitter account,” Ellison continued. “And if he’s mistreating, misusing it and abusing people, serially, I think that he shouldn’t have an account.”

He added, “This is a private sector business. He is abusing that service. He is intimidating people, he is abusing women, and he shouldn’t have it.”
