President urges firms to ‘Clean up your act, NOW!!!!’, without any apparent irony
By Jon Sharman | Independent |
Donald Trump has threatened to close down social media platforms that do not support his agenda, a day after Twitter posted a fact-checking notice on one of his tweets.
Social media firms suppressed conservative points of view, the president claimed without providing any evidence, before saying his administration would “strongly regulate [the companies] or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen”.
Mr Trump advised the companies to “Clean up your act, NOW!!!!”.
