America's Orange Menace has spoken! In response to most social media outlets shutting down Alex Jones, recently referred to as the gateway drug to white supremacy, the President of the United States has decided to defend free speech for people who hate.
President Donald Trump claimed that social media firms are incorrectly clamping down on right-wing views and said his administration "won't let that happen."
"Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration … They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others," he said on Twitter early Saturday morning.
Trump has previously spoken of "shadow banning," a term used to describe anti-rightwing bias in social media or the reduction of visibility for people with certain views. Social media firms have denied these claims.
