President Donald Trump on Thursday night urged the shooting of robbers in Minnesota, sparking a volatile national debate over the death of an African-American man in police custody and issuing an online provocation against US citizens was so extraordinary that Twitter Partially hidden.

"I can't go back and see this happening in a big American city, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. The very weak mayor of the radical Left, Jacob Fray, acts together and brings the city under control, or I Will send the guard. National and I will get the job right, "Trump tweeted before midnight.

In the second part of his message, Trump tweeted: "These thugs are being dishonest in memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen." I just talked to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the military is with him all the time. Any difficulties will take over us, but when the loot begins, the shooting will begin. Thank you!"

The late-night revelation by the president, which came at the end of the third day of raging protests in the Minnesota Twin Cities, received a Twitter warning tag for violating his "glory violence" policies. But the popular social media platform "determined that it might be in the public interest that the tweet remained accessible," and allowed users to view Trump's tweet if they wanted. Twitter's communications team also tweeted that it had put in a public interest notice post "because of the risk that it could inspire similar action today."

Hours after the arrest on Monday and the death of 46-year-old black man George Floyd, national outrage and protests erupted across the country after a video from a viewer of his encounter with Minneapolis police showed a kneeling officer on Floyd's neck. As he repeatedly begs for air, he eventually freezes and the paramedics place him on a stretcher.

Dozens of companies in the Twin Cities closed their windows on Thursday to prevent looting, while the Minneapolis-based Target announced it would temporarily close two dozen stores in the area and the city closed nearly the entire light rail system Bus services up to and including all Sundays. By night, protesters opened fire at the Third Minneapolis Constituency Police Station, which covers the southern part of Minneapolis where Floyd was arrested, forcing the department to leave the building.
