(WTNH) – Some of President Donald Trump’s tweets could soon come with a warning label. 

Twitter’s head of Legal, Policy and Trust says they are considering flagging tweets that violate its rules but should not be removed because they’re in the public interest. 

Twitter is working to balance its standards while adding context to tweets from politicians and public figures that may be offensive but are important for public debate. 

Twitter’s current approach has been criticized because some say Trump’s tweets include threats and bullying, which are a violation of Twitter’s own rules.
