Trump Advisor’s Son Deletes Twitter After Calling Executive Order A ‘Muslim Ban’

Michael G. Flynn, the son of President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, apparently deleted his Twitter account on Sunday after referring to the executive order Trump signed Friday night as a “Muslim ban.”

In multiple tweets posted on Saturday and Sunday, the younger Flynn referred to Trump’s executive order banning refugees and immigrants from certain countries from entering the United States with the hashtag “#MuslimBan.”

“Its (sic) called using a trending hashtag,” he replied to CNN host Jake Tapper, apparently attempting to walk back the implication of his tweets that the President signed an executive order to specifically block Muslim immigration (as Trump repeatedly promised to do on the campaign trail).

The younger Flynn’s Twitter feed was littered with links to fake news articles, including “Pizzagate”-related tweets, and retweets from members of the white nationalist alt-right before its disappearance.

His account was unavailable Sunday afternoon, but remains accessible via the Internet Archive, which saves copies of webpages.
