Trump Accuses Tech Companies Of 'Trying To Silence' Conservative Voices


According to a report by Reuters, on Wednesday, US President Donald Trump renewed his attack on technology companies, including Twitter, Facebook, and Google, accusing them of "trying to silence" people by blocking or removing conservative voices. Trump told reporters at the White House, "I think that Google and Facebook and Twitter ... treat conservatives and Republicans very unfairly. I think it’s a very serious problem because they’re really trying to silence a very large part of this country, and those people don’t want to be silenced. It’s not right. It’s not fair. It may not be legal, but we’ll see. We just want fairness."
