The tweet was Taylor's most-liked tweet ever with more than 1.5 million likes till now.

Taylor was responding to Trump's earlier tweet that said "These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!."

Twitter added a warning label to Trump's tweet as it violated rules against glorifying violence.


Protestor turned violent in Minnesota after video emerged of George Flyod, an African-American man saying "I can't breathe" as white police officer pinned him down and kneeled on his neck for 8 minutes.

After being unresponsive, Flyod was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead an hour later which sparked violent protests across Minnesota and neighboring states.
