President Donald Trump tweeted Monday that the United States faces a “National Emergy” (sic) as a caravan of migrants approaches the southern border with Mexico, and a conservative blogger responded with a three-word suggestions: “Shoot on site” (sic).
> [Michael] Moates subsequently deleted the tweet — but not, he says, because he realized that it’s wrong to advocate gunning down women and children seeking asylum in the United States.
> “Let me clarify that his tweet was in the context of Donald Trump addressing illegal aliens coming into this country without permission and I also want to go as far as to say the only reason the tweet was deleted was because I was afraid Twitter would ban me,” he wrote in a followup tweet.
Moates previously ran into trouble after several teenage girls accused him of inappropriate behavior:
> Earlier this month, a report from Right Wing Watch documented how multiple pro-life Christian teens have accused the 23-year-old Moates of making sexual comments to them and sending them “inappropriate” photos despite knowing that they were underage.
> Moates has responded to the accusations by saying, “The fact that you can’t call a woman beautiful without offending them anymore is a problem.”
