Are New National Park Tweets about Incarceration Camps Directed at President Trump?

posted by Randall

Incarceration CampsApparently President Trump isn’t the only one in the federal government engaged in a Twitter war.
 
Rogue employees of the National Park Service may be staging a revolt of their own.
 
The National Park Service sent out several tweets referencing the incarceration of Japanese Americans in World War II.
 


 


 
The tweets came out on the same day the President announced he would suspend federal funding of sanctuary cities, suspend the refugee program for 120 days and build a wall along the U.S. Mexican border.
 
Death Valley National Park denied their tweets were directed at the President, saying the preservation of history is part of its mission. Some are skeptical given that Trump suspended the National Park Service’s Twitter account after it tweeted out pictures comparing the crowd’s at Mr. Trump’s inauguration to that of President Obama in 2009.
 
Since then, an alternative Twitter account has been set up by so far anonymous employees. The account, @AltNatParkSer has sent out information about global warning and climate change, something the new President says doesn’t exist.
