Trump defends free speech - by claiming social media is "discriminating" against conservatives

Trump defends free speech - by claiming social media is

President Trump on Saturday charged that social media is "totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices" and argued that the platforms should allow both "good and bad" content online amid an ongoing debate over social media's role in policing content online. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made. Jones is known for pushing ludicrous content like the idea that the Sandy Hook massacre was a false flag operation, but then again, Trump appeared on his show in 2015, praising his "amazing reputation" in the process.

"Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won't let that happen", he added. Trump in the past has referred to alleged "shadow banning" by Twitter as "discriminatory and illegal".

Owens, Turning Point USA's communications director, had been locked out of her Twitter account after copying tweets from Sarah Jeong, the newest member of the New York Times' editorial board.

YouTube stars "Diamond and Silk", two of Trump's most ardent supporters, claimed during a House Judiciary Committee hearing earlier this year that Facebook censored them as well.

Trump accused social media giants of "closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others".

The President said while networks like CNN and MSNBC might be "fake news", he does not "ask that their sick behavior be removed".

"Censorship is a very unsafe thing & absolutely impossible to police", he wrote. The President noted that "too many voices are being destroyed", while his favorite "Fake News" targets of CNN and MSNBC are allowed.
