It’s official. President Donald Trump and his administration are finally cracking down on Google, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for illegally using their massive company to silence and censor the American people.
According to the Daily Mail, President Trump has just confirmed that his administration is finally taking action to stop the monopoly social media companies have over free speech in America. Trump made the announcement shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr revealed that he was pushing an antitrust case against Google by the summer. And several additional sources have confirmed that the lawsuit will be filed before autumn.
On Twitter, Trump officially announced:
“The Radical Left is in total command & control of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Google. The Administration is working to remedy this illegal situation. Stay tuned, and send names & events.”
Trump’s announcement comes as the Justice Department is preparing a case against one of the biggest tech companies, Google.
And several sources have even reportedly confirmed that President Trump’s lawsuit against the tech giants could be filed on Autumn or possibly even before then. However, the sources requested anonymity to discuss a law-enforcement proceeding that had not been finalized. It is not clear if the Justice Department plans to file at the same time as state officials who also are probing the company. Their case against Google could be ready by autumn, one of the sources said.
According to the report by the Daily Mail, the Justice Department is expected to officially file its case against the giant tech company as early as this summer while some states have decided to follow suit as well. Other states involved in the legal action will reportedly include Texas.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton may take action in the fall, along with his peers in other states, according to the report. Paxton, who is leading the state probe, said in a statement they had not been “slowed down by the coronavirus pandemic”.
Facebook CEO Calls Meeting With Trump
Needless to say, owners of social media companies are very worried about what might happen when Trump investigates their actions. That’s why they are now doing everything in their power to charm the president.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg even reportedly called a meeting with top conservatives in the media and in politics in an attempt to dispel the impression among many that the social network has an inherent liberal bias. But it’s obviously not working. Because Trump is investigating them anyway.
Zuckerberg even reportedly had a secret dinner with President Trump in October with billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel.
But Trump isn’t letting a dinner stop the lawsuit from continuing.
Tech Companies Have Silenced Republicans For Years
This should have happened years ago, but Donald Trump is the only man with guts enough to take on the social media giants.
For years now, companies like Facebook and Google have done everything in their power to silence the voices of Republicans in America. They target right-wing news websites and right-wing politicians. Facebook even made changes recently that makes it harder for news websites to show up on people’s phones.
All of this was nothing more than the hard left’s miserable attempt to affect the outcome of the 2020 election. But it’s not working.
Now. It looks like these giant companies are finally going to be stopped. Just as they should be.
