“The government is working to address this illegal situation. Stay tuned and send names and examples,” the US president said on Twitter.
He retweets a video with a speech by conservative blogger and political commentator Michelle Malkin. She argues that many of her friends and acquaintances have been thrown off social media platforms “because of their ideas”. These people would also no longer be able to do online banking and online shopping.
Social media reserves the right to block accounts if things are posted that don’t meet the guidelines. This could, for example, be about hate speech, terrorism, violence or sex.
Malkin called on Trump to take action and not put it into words. She responded to a previous tweet from Trump, in which he praises his Twitter followers as “keyboard fighters” who serve his interests better than professional advertising people.
