Pentagon Retweets That Donald Trump Should 'Resign From The Presidency'
Pentagon Retweets That Donald Trump Should 'Resign From The Presidency'  

The Pentagon posted an unusual message on Twitter Thursday - one urging President Donald Trump to resign.

Defense Department spokeswoman Dana White said an "authorized operator" of the Pentagon website "erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense. The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it."

The startling note was a retweet of a message by a Twitter user who calls himself "Proud Resister." His tweet encouraged Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Trump all to step aside. All three men have been accused of some form of sexual misconduct.

The Defense Department offered no further details about how the mistake might have occurred. Proud Resister fans― both jokingly and earnestly― credited the dramatic message to the "Deep State," a conspiracy theory that embeds within government and major industries are colluding to manipulate the national discourse.

By Sofia Menchu GUATEMALA CITY (Reuters) - The family of a 19-year-old Guatemalan woman killed by a U.S. border patrol officer called on Friday for the United States to dial-back its rhetoric on migrants, after President Donald Trump described gang members entering the country as "animals." The woman, identified by her family as Claudia Gomez, was shot on Wednesday in south Texas by an officer who opened fire after several people "rushed him," the Border Patrol said in a statement on Friday. The agency, alternately describing them as "illegal aliens" and "a group of suspected illegal aliens," said Gomez was among them.
