During his joint press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, President Donald Trump went after social media companies for their alleged bias against conservative figures.
Speaking from the White House Rose Garden, the president railed against social media censorshipand expressed support for Rep. Devin Nunes‘ (R-CA) lawsuit against Twitter in response to a question from The Daily Caller‘s Saagar Enjeti about whether Trump is interested in making social media companies “liable for the content that is on their platform.”
Trump took the opportunity to boast about his social media following, remark on the “big discrimination” against right-wingers, and he more or less accused several tech giants of “collusion” against conservatives.
“When you get the back scene, back office statements made by executives of the various companies and you see the level of – in many cases hatred – they have for a certain group of people that happen to be in power, that happen to have won the election, you say that’s really unfair. Something’s happening with those groups of folks that are running Facebook and Google and Twitter and I do think we have to get to the bottom of it. It’s very fair. It’s collusive and it’s very, very fair to say that we have to do something about it.”
