    If 'What did someone say' is off topic when the source has been removed, the help centre is going to need explicitly updating to say that. If as a matter of policy, publicising the false statements is to be avoided on site, it is going to need to be hard deleted faster than the usual process allows for. – Jontia Jan 7 at 8:30
  • @Jontia: I think you're jumping over the gun here. We generally allow discussion of propaganda even if Twitter doesn't. But I suggest you ask/propose on meta if this q should be deleted. – Fizz Jan 7 at 19:10
  • @Fizz I think it should be reopened rather than deleted, but you're right, it probably should go to meta that it was deleted at all. – Jontia Jan 7 at 19:16
  • @Jontia: ah, I misread the conditional. Was it actually deleted (rather than closed) though? The history tab doesn't indicate any delete/undelete events. – Fizz Jan 7 at 19:18

    @Fizz I've stuck it on meta. No it wasn't deleted, that's kind-of the point I'm making. If the content isn't suitable, because it's spreading the false statements further, then a simple close doesn't really remove it very well. It needs to be hard deleted before gaining steam. – Jontia Jan 7 at 19:29

All of Donald Trump's deleted tweets and retweets can be found here on factba.se, which is a site that tracks what Trump and other political figures say or tweet.

You can see screenshots of the original tweets on that site. Here are the transcripts of the regular tweets:

Mike Pence didn't have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution, giving States a chance to certify a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones which they were asked to previously certify. USA demands the truth!

These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landlside election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!

And the transcript of the video he posted:

I know your pain. I know you’re hurt. We had an election that was stolen from us. It was a landslide election, and everyone knows it, especially the other side, but you have to go home now. We have to have peace. We have to have law and order. We have to respect our great people in law and order. We don’t want anybody hurt. It’s a very tough period of time. There’s never been a time like this where such a thing happened, where they could take it away from all of us, from me, from you, from our country. This was a fraudulent election, but we can’t play into the hands of these people. We have to have peace. So go home. We love you. You’re very special. You’ve seen what happens. You see the way others are treated that are so bad and so evil. I know how you feel. But go home and go home at peace.

Twitter's TwitterSafety account stated that they removed these tweets for repeated violations of their policies that went above their usual public-interest policy which allowed other violations to go undeleted. His account is locked until the tweets are deleted, with a minimum 12-hour suspension, and it may be suspended if he continues to break their policies.
