The Pentagon’s official Twitter account has retweeted, but then quickly Deleted, a post that included a call for President Donald Trump to resign.
The original tweet was posted by a user with the name handle @ProudResister.
Just a few moment after that, Pentagon that has more than 5.2 million followers, deleted that retweet, apparently after realizing its mistake.
And without mentioning the content of the original tweet, the Assistant to the Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, Dana White, said it "would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense."
An authorized operator of the @DeptofDefense’s official Twitter site erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense. The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it.
