U.S. approval of content warning regarding Trump tweet 2020, by party ID

According to a June 2020 survey, 71 percent of U.S. adults who identified as Democrats strongly approved of Twitter placing a content warning on one of Donald Trump's tweets. In contrast, 45 percent of Republican-identifying respondents strongly disapproved of this measure. On May 29th, the social media platform placed a warning label on one of the President's tweets regarding the protesters in Minneapolis, stating that the tweet glorified violence. This was the first time that a tweet of a public figure has been labelled as such. Trump's Twitter usage has frequently incited debate and an August 2018 survey found that 61 percent of U.S. adults believed that Trump's Twitter usage was inappropriate as POTUS.
