Donald Трамп announced on Twitter that he’s ending a key set of Obamacare subsidies that helped lower-income enrollees pay for health care.

“The Democrats ObamaCare is imploding. Massive subsidy payments to their pet insurance companies has stopped. Dems should call me to fix!” he tweeted.

Several people reported the tweet as, “abusive or harmful to other people,” since kicking poor people off of health care would certainly harm them. When asked for a comment, Twitter said, “can’t talk now, we’re suspending women like actor Rose McGowan from the platform for talking about being raped.”

An opinion piece by NBC News reporter Elizabeth Chuck noted that there’s very little to gain, but a lot to lose, when women report sexual harassment. Chuck cited a study that found 75 percent of women who spoke out about sexual harassment faced retaliation, like being punished for a minor infraction or being passed over for a promotion.

Ms. Chuck was later suspended from NBC News for mixing up paper and plastic in the recycling bin.
