Opinion: Trump's menacing message follows 1960s script

As fires burned in Minneapolis on the third night of protests in the wake of George Floyd's death, President Donald Trump tweeted, "When the looting starts, the shooting starts."

"Twitter has hidden one of Donald Trump’s tweets behind a warning that it 'glorifies violence,' further escalating the social media company’s row with the US president."

"The US president’s tweet, posted on Thursday night Washington time, warned people in Minneapolis protesting against the killing of a black man, George Floyd, by a white police officer that he would send the military to intervene if there was 'any difficulty.' 'When the looting starts, the shooting starts,' Trump wrote, apparently quoting the former Miami police chief Walter Headley, who in December 1967 promised violent reprisals to protests over stop-and-frisk tactics.
