Donald Trump Deleted Some Embarrassing Tweets After Alabama Loss

PresidentDonald Trumpclaimed on Tuesday that Sen.Luther Strangewas “shooting up” in the Alabama polls thanks to his endorsement. 

But whenStrange lostby nearly 10 points toRoy Moorein Tuesday night’s Republican primary, the president deleted that and two other messages in support of his candidate. 

ProPublica’s Politwoops, which tracks deleted tweets from politicians, preserved the messages: 

Trump’s deleted tweets and other messages arepart of an ongoing lawsuit by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), which argues that the erasures violate thePresidential Records Act.  

“The American people not only deserve to know how their government is making important decisions, it’s the law,” CREW Executive Director Noah Bookbinder said in a news release in June. “By deleting these records,the White House is destroying essential historical records.”
