BEDMINSTER, NJ – President Donald Trump is fighting to get back on social media by filing a class action lawsuit against big tech.
Trump has been banned or suspended from Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube since the capitol insurrection on January 6. Twitter banned Trump altogether, and he is currently suspended from Facebook for at least two years.
He announced the lawsuit during a press conference in New Jersey on Wednesday.
“We’re demanding an end to the shadow banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and canceling that you know so well. Our case will prove this censorship is unlawful, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s completely un-American.”
All three companies have declined to comment. Tech companies have consistently rejected claims that their platforms discriminate based on partisan ideology.
In fact, several independent studies have found that partisan voices, particularly on the right, are among the most engaged with on social media.
Earlier today the Washington Examiner reported on Nancy Pelosi’s husband who made millions in recent transactions related to actions taken in the US House.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, bought up to $11 million worth of Big Tech stocks in the last two months as an anti-tech package of bills makes its way through the House at the same time.
In May and June, Pelosi purchased $4.8 million worth of Google shares, up to $1 million worth of Amazon call options, up to $250,000 of Apple call options, and up to $5 million of call options for Nvidia, the large semiconductor, graphics, and electronics company, according to a financial disclosure form filed last week.
The stock transactions were completed just weeks before the House Judiciary Committee passed six bipartisan antitrust bills aimed at reining in tech giants such as Apple, Amazon, Google, and Facebook.
