Donald Trump Escalates War On Social Media At White House 'Summit'

Trump accuses social media companies of 'terrible bias' at summit decried by critics

Facebook said it had not been invited while Twitter and Reddit declined to comment.

During a 50-minute address, Trump reflected on some of his Twitter gaffes, bemoaning how they are jumped on by the media.

CNN's complaints had already resulted in the White House disinviting Ben Garrison, a web cartoonist and Trump supporter. We can't suppose for obvious, but President Trump with out a doubt spent a astronomical phase of his tackle on one topic: how his tweets don't pop off love they light to.

"President Trump's social media summit is a ruse created to intimidate technology companies like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube into allowing bigoted and white nationalist hate content on their platforms", said Madihha Ahussain, Muslim Advocates' special counsel for anti-Muslim bigotry.

The Internet Association, a trade group representing major tech firms like Facebook, Twitter and Google, said on Thursday "internet companies are not biased against any political ideology, and conservative voices in particular have used social media to great effect".

"Project Veritas can be synergistic with the Trump administration to pull back the curtain surrounding Big Tech", O'Keefe said in a statement online after receiving the invitation. "Enforcing basic standards of decency on social media isn't censoring conservative speech".

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee, and Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, were also invited to the summit, according to Politico.

Unfortunately, social media companies don't always do a good job of explaining why users were banned. They were joined by organizations such as the Media Research Center, a conservative group that has called for the breakup of big tech companies, and PragerU, which produces right-leaning videos that it believes Google has censored - a matter the two sides are battling in court. President Trump mentioned - in a tweet, for sure - that the event might possibly maybe maybe maybe be specializing in "dishonesty, bias, discrimination and suppression practiced by sure corporations".

Trump, who regularly lashes out at the mainstream news media for their work which he brands as "fake news", made social media a key part of his 2016 run for office as well as his 2020 reelection campaign. But he and other Republicans have long claimed that online platforms employ tactics to silence their voices, allegations that major social media companies have denied. "It's a shame President Trump would prefer to fan the same fires of online social discord that Russian Federation sparked in the 2016 election rather than bring real experts together to address the issue of content moderation in a thoughtful and rational manner".
