A Twitter account that President Donald Trump frequently retweets was partially suspended Thursday for allegedly violating the company’s rules of conduct.

“His account is in a locked state. He’ll be required to delete a Tweet that violated the Twitter Rules before he can be reinstated,” a Twitter spokeswoman told The Daily Caller News Foundation, referring to the profile of pro-Trump memester “Carpe Donktum.” She did not specify which one of Donktum’s tweets violated the company’s rules of conduct.

Donktum, an account known for creating satirical memes and videos mocking CNN and lionizing the president, got into a fight on Twitter Wednesday with an account known for trolling Trump. Donktum accused the account of “fraudulently” reporting a video that shows a movie character with Trump’s face superimposed on his head pulling a pistol on another character depicted as CNN’s Jim Acosta.

The video appears to be an altered clip of the 1970 movie “Trinity Is Still My Name,” a spaghetti Western film starring actors Terence Hill and Bud Spencer. One scene in the movie shows Hill’s character repeatedly pulling a gun on another character. The video, which was live as late as Thursday night, was apparently taken down sometime Friday morning.

Donktum’s bio section reads: “Eternally Sarcastic Memesmith specializing in the creation of Images and Videos. I tweet and meme in support of Donald Trump. Posted content is 100% original.” He fashions himself as a type of Twitter satirist.

The president has retweeted Donktum’s tweets in the past, including one in April mocking former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump also retweeted a video from the account in February poking funat Democratic lawmakers who attended the president’s 2019 State of the Union speech. That video, which has since been taken down, features the ubiquitous song “Everybody Hurts” by R.E.M. overlaid on footage from the speech.

Trump, for his part, has repeatedly criticized Facebook and Twitter in the pastfor supposedly targeting conservative content. “I will be looking into this!” the president wrote in a tweet in March before adding the hashtag “” He was likely referringto reports showing that White House social media director Dan Scavino Jr. was temporarily blocked from making public Facebook comments that month.

TheDCNF reached out to Donktum through Twitter for response, but he has yet to respond. Profiles that are partially suspended are limited in their actions on the platform.
