Donald Trump and Twitter are at war.
The President called out the social media giant for trying to rig the 2020 election.
And now Donald Trump signed one Executive Order about Twitter that had all hell breaking loose.
Donald Trump signed an Executive Order on Thursday to address social media censorship of conservatives after Twitter “fact checked” two of the President’s tweets about voter fraud.
Twitter’s “fact checks” were false and conducted by left-wing partisans at Twitter.
In signing his Executive Order, the President noted that social media companies engaged in censorship by picking and choosing who was targeted when Twitter enforced their rules and who they let slide.
“The choices that Twitter makes, when it chooses to suppress, edit, blacklist, shadowban are editorial decisions, pure and simple, they are editorial decisions,” the President told reporters.
“What they choose to fact check and what they choose to ignore or promote is nothing more than a political activism group,” President Trump added.
But the centerpiece of the order was the President ordering the Secretary of Commerce to petition the Federal Communications Commission to regulate social media’s liability protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which grants tech companies protection from lawsuits for content posted on their platform provided they act in good faith as viewpoint neutral platforms.
Breitbart reported, “The Secretary of Commerce, through the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, will petition the FCC to propose regulations that clarify the provisions of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, specifically the provision that gives tech platforms immunity for ‘good faith’ efforts to filter or remove content that is “obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, excessively violent, harassing, or otherwise objectionable.”
Ever since the 2016 election, social media giants targeted conservatives for banning and censorship in retaliation for Donald Trump winning in 2016.
And President Trump is fighting back against tech companies trying to rig the 2020 contest.
