TWITTER's head of site integrity called the President Donald Trump's team "actual nazis" in a newly resurfaced tweet.
Yoel Roth also once referred to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as "bag of farts" and donated to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016, according to FOX News.
On January 22, 2017 Roth tweeted: "The 'you are not the right kind of feminist' backlash to yesterday’s marches has begun. Did we learn nothing from this election?"
That same day, Roth also wrote to Twitter: "Yes, that person in the pink hat is clearly a bigger threat to your brand of feminism than ACTUAL NAZIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE."
Roth's anti-Trump posts resurfaced Wednesday and prompted many to question the Twitter employee's personal integrity.
In July 2017, Roth tweeted: "How does a personality-free bag of farts like Mitch McConnell actually win elections?"
A year before that he wrote: "I'm just saying, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason."
In September 2016, Roth admitted he donated $100 "to Hillary for America" – adding in his tweet: "We can't f*** around anymore."
"Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their other compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.
In response the Roth's Twitter history, House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also blasted Roth's actions
He said: “I think if you run a company like Twitter you’d probably first look at what that individual would put out on Twitter themselves," according to the New York Post.
McCarthy slammed the Twitter employee for thinking Republicans are racist and connecting the Nazi Party to the Republican Party.
He added: "I’m not quite sure that’s the person I would have being the individual in charge of Twitter determining whether the facts are correct or not, because I think he already is biased in that opinion."
According to Fox News, a Twitter spokesperson told the news outlet: "No one person at Twitter is responsible for our policies or enforcement actions, and it's unfortunate to see individual employees targeted for company decisions."
The controversy comes just one day after Trump slammed Twitter for labelling his tweets with "fact-checks" for the first time after he posted about "rigged" mail-in votes.
He said Twitter was "interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election" and insisted he would not tolerate it.
Twitter on Tuesday for the first time prompted readers to check facts in tweets sent by Trump, warning his claims about mail-in ballots were false and had been debunked by fact checkers.
The blue exclamation mark notification prompted readers to “get the facts about mail-in ballots."
People were then directed them to a page with news articles and information about the claims aggregated by Twitter staffers.
Trump later tweeted: "Twitter is completely stifling free speech, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!"
