Trump sues Twitter, Google and Facebook alleging ‘censorship’

Freedom of speech

The class action lawsuit also targets the three companies’ CEOs. Mr Trump was suspended from his social accopremiercity.comunts in January over public safety concerns in the wake of the Capitol riots, led by his supporters.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump called the lawsuit “a very beautiful development for our freedom of speech”. In a news conference from his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, Mr Trump railed against social media companies and Democrats, who he accused of espousing misinformation.

“We are demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and cancelling that you know so well,” he said. The suit requests a court order to end alleged censorship. Mr Trump added if they could ban a president, “they can do it to anyone”.
