Nigerian army deletes tweet that quoted Trump on protesters

The AI disclosed this in reaction to the Nigerian Army's tweets referencing President Trump's words to justify the fatal shooting of rock-throwing protestors and the subsequent issuing of a statement denouncing AI's calls for accountability.

Trump said in a speech on Thursday that rocks thrown by migrants on the US-Mexico border should be considered as firearms.

"Please watch and make your deductions", the army said in a comment accompanying the post on its official Twitter account.

"We're not going to put up with that".

Mr. Trump made the remarks at the White House Thursday, saying of the migrants, "They want to throw rocks at our military - our military fights back". "What are they then saying?" Days later, the Nigerian Army tweeted Trump's comments about firing at migrants to justify its own shooting of protesters days earlier.

Regarding the deaths on Saturday and Monday, the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria said it is concerned and is urging "restraint on all sides".
