Trump suing Facebook, Twitter, and Google over right-wing censorship claims

Global News published this video item, entitled “Trump suing Facebook, Twitter, and Google over right-wing censorship claims” – below is their description.

Former U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Wednesday that he is filing and leading class-action lawsuits against Twitter Inc, Facebook Inc, and Alphabet’s Google, along with their CEOs, claiming that his and conservative viewpoints have been wrongly censored by the social media platforms.

“We’re demanding an end to the shadow banning a stop to the silencing and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and cancelling… so well our case will prove this censorship is unlawful. It’s unconstitutional, and it’s completely un-American,” Trump said at a news conference at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf course.

The former president was suspended from Twitter and Facebook after a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol building on January 6th, with the companies citing concerns that he would incite further violence.

“In the words of the father of our country, although some would like to take that title away from him, George Washington, he will not be cancelled… If freedom of speech may be taken away, then dumb and silent, we may be led like sheep to the slaughter,” Trump said during the announcement.

Trump is currently banned from the platforms.
