WASHINGTON -- Twitter has added a warning to one of U.S. President Donald J. Trump's tweets about protests in Minneapolis, saying it violated the platform's rules about "glorifying violence."

Trump, a prolific Twitter user, has been at war with the company since earlier this week, when it applied fact checks to two of his tweets about mail-in ballots.

The third tweet to be flagged started as a message of support for the governor of Minnesota, where there have been three days of violent protests over the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man who pleaded for air as a white police officer kneeled on his neck.
