President Donald Trump likened the current outlook of the United States to a “person dying of cancer” in a scathing Truth Social post about the FBI.

Talking about Friday’s fresh revelations from the Twitter Files that the social media giant had “constant and pervasive” communications with the bureau, Trump declared that such “thugs and Tyrants must be dealt with,” or else, the country could meet its demise.

“Our Country is SICK inside, very much like a person dying of Cancer. The Crooked FBI, the so-called Department of ‘Justice,’ and ‘Intelligence,’ all parts of the Democrat Party and System, are the Cancer. These Weaponized Thugs and Tyrants must be dealt with, or our once great and beautiful Country will die!!!” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post.

On Friday, journalist Matt Taibbi revealed that the FBI often flagged content for Twitter to review for content moderation purposes and underscored that there had been over 150 emails between the bureau and former Twitter trust and safety chief Yoel Roth between January 2020 to November 2022. At one point, Twitter executives had near-weekly meetings with law enforcement officials, the journalist noted.

Newly anointed Twitter CEO Elon Musk has given sprawling internal Twitter access to Taibbi, journalist Bari Weiss, and author Michael Shellenberger, who have released the so-called Twitter Files outlining internal company deliberations on content moderation and key flashpoints such as the suspension of Trump’s account following the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“This (the FBI’s wild and crazy relationship with Twitter) is absolutely a coordinated effort to change Election Results! It worked, but they got caught. This is why people protested in Washington. Our 2020 Presidential Election was Crooked, Rigged, and Stolen, and yet the Unselect Committee of Political Hacks & Thugs didn’t spend any time investigating this outrage!” the former president wrote in another post.

Earlier this week, Trump vowed to ban the federal government from “colluding with any organization” if he retakes the White House in 2024. He laid out a litany of measures he would pursue in a hypothetical second term as president to counter the concerns conservatives have raised about censorship in light of the Twitter Files.

His policy announcement, which came Thursday, was overshadowed by the debut of the Donald Trump Digital Trading Card collection, in which his followers could pay $99 for a digital card bearing his likeness. Some of his closest allies, such as Steve Bannon, criticized the move. Nevertheless, the collection reportedly sold out and amassed $4.5 million.
