Snapchat Will Stop Promoting President Trump’s Posts

Snapchat, a social media platform particularly popular with young people, says it will stop promoting President Donald Trump’s account on its Discover feature, saying the president incites “racial violence and injustice” in a statement on Wednesday morning.
