Donald Trump: Social media, press support ‘Radical Left Democrats’

March 19, 2019

President Trump slammed tech giants Facebook, Google and Twitter Tuesday, saying the social media companies all support Democrats.

“Facebook, Google and Twitter, not to mention the Corrupt Media, are sooo on the side of the Radical Left Democrats,” the president tweeted. “But fear not, we will win anyway, just like we did before!”

Mr. Trump has repeatedly claimed Facebook, Twitter and Google are preventing people from following him.

Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey has denied the allegations, and Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai told House lawmakers last year his company does not purposefully bury conservative content.

Mr. Trump’s tweet Tuesday comes after Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican, filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter, alleging the company “shadow bans” conservative accounts. Shadow banning is a way to limit the audience for certain tweets.

On Monday, Twitter acknowledged making an error, saying it shadow banned an editor at The Federalist, a conservative publication. The company, though, denies shadow banning is part of the company’s policy.
