Kamala Harris is calling on Twitter bosses to suspend President Donald Trump's Twitter account, saying his sometimes brutal Twitter posts could put people in danger.

Trump is on the hot seat for asking the Ukraine president to investigate corruption by presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officially declared an impeachment inquiry, which sent social media into a frenzy last week.

But the California senator, who is a long shot for the Democratic nomination, wants Trump silenced for good on the social media platform.

"The president's tweets and his behaviors about this are just further evidence of the fact that he uses his power in a way that is designed to beat people down instead of lift people up,' Harris told Anderson Cooper on CNN Monday night.

Harris pointed to one of Trump's tweets in which he demanded to meet with the CIA whistleblower who leaked the contents of his phone call with the Ukrainian president.

"Frankly, when you look at what he's been tweeting today directed at the whistle-blower, directed at so many people, you know, I, frankly, think that based on this and all we've seen him do before, including attacking members of Congress, that he, frankly, should be - his Twitter account should be suspended,' she added.

She followed up her interview by tweeting, "Look let's be honest, @realDonaldTrump's Twitter account should be suspended."
