Donald Trump, the former US president, has filed a lawsuit against tech giants Google, Twitter and Facebook, claiming he is a victim of censorship.
The filed process targets the CEOs of the three companies. Donald Trump was suspended from his social accounts in January for public safety concerns following the Capitol riots.
Donald Trump on Wednesday called the process “a development for our freedom of expression.”
In an interview at his golf resort in Bedminster, Trump protested against social media companies and Democrats, whom he accused of defending misinformation.
Trump’s open lawsuit requests a court order to end the alleged censorship. Donald Trump added that if they could ban a president, “they can do it to anyone.”
The truth is that none of the companies named have yet to respond to the lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Florida.
According to Twitter , the tweets that resulted in the suspension of Trump’s accounts were the “incentive to violence” tweets that occurred on January 8th. Trump followed up with his repeated publications that the election was rigged in favor of Joe Biden.
Donald Trump also cited in another post that the “great patriots” who voted for him will have “a giant voice”, “will not be disrespected or treated unfairly and that he would not attend the inauguration of President Joe Biden.
Also on Wednesday, Trump’s Republican allies released a memo in Congress outlining a plan “to stand up to Big Tech,” calling for a recast of a bill known as Section 230.
Section 230, which Trump tried to repeal as president, prevents companies like Facebook and Twitter from taking responsibility for user posts.
“It’s a liability protection that no one in our country’s history has ever received,” Trump said, criticizing the law.
