The US Department of Defense on Thursday retouched on its page on Twitter a call for the resignation of President Donald Trump, subsequently assuring that this was by mistake.
In a Pentagon account @DeptofDefense, a retweet from the user @proudresister appeared, which called for the resignation of Trump, as well as Democratic Senator Al Franken and a candidate for Senators from Alabama Roy Moore, who were accused of harassment.
Similar accusations were voiced by a number of women against Trump during the campaign, but the charges practically ceased with Trump’s election as president a year ago.
“The decision is simple: Roy Moore: quit the election race Al Franken: quit the congress Donald Trump: leave the presidential post GOP (Republican Party) – stop representing sexual assault by the party question, this, like your hypocrisy, is a crime, – says the tweet, which retwined the Pentagon in its official account with 5.3 million followers.
The solution is simple…
Roy Moore: Step down from the race.
Al Franken: Resign from congress.
Donald Trump: Resign from the presidency.
GOP: Stop making sexual assault a partisan issue. It’s a crime as is your hypocrisy.

The recording was quickly deleted. Pentagon spokesman Dana White explained that it was a casual oversight.
“The authorized operator of the official @DeptofDefense account on Twitter accidentally retried the content that the Defense Ministry would not approve, the operator noticed this error and immediately deleted it,” White wrote on her Twitter.
