Trump Threatens to Use Government Power to ‘Close Down’ Social Media for Fact-Checking Him
President Donald Trump threatened to “close down” social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter if they didn’t stop fact-checking his lie-filled tweets about mail-in voting, which Trump has falsely claimed is rife with fraud.
Ironically, Trump used the social media platform Twitter to voice his dictator-like threat.
….happen again. Just like we can’t let large scale Mail-In Ballots take root in our Country. It would be a free for all on cheating, forgery and the theft of Ballots. Whoever cheated the most would win. Likewise, Social Media. Clean up your act, NOW!!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 27, 2020
