Last night, Donald Trump accused Twitter of “conservative discrimination” and called for an end of Section 230, which offers a degree of immunity to the social media platforms for any content uploaded by third parties.

Section 230 has been criticized by Trump and Joe Biden, while social media and tech giants claim that it is critical to their continued existence. Still, critics of the big tech giants point out that because Twitter, Facebook and Google, for example, operate as publishers, they no longer deserve immunity from content uploaded by third parties.

“Why isn’t Biden corruption trending number one on Twitter? Biggest world story, and nowhere to be found. There is no ‘trend’, only negative stories that Twitter wants to put up. Disgraceful! Section 230,” the president tweeted October 28.

Trump has accused social media sites of censoring conservative voices, including his own, while Biden told The New York Times the law needed changing as the platforms have played a key role in the spreading of viral misinformation.

In October, Trump accused Twitter of censoring tweets that had to do with Hunter Biden email controversy.

“Why isn’t Biden corruption trending number one on Twitter? Biggest world story, and nowhere to be found. There is no ‘trend’, only negative stories that Twitter wants to put up. Disgraceful! Section 230,” the president tweeted October 28.

Twitter has repeatedly flagged Trump’s tweets by adding warning labels claiming the information in the tweets is “misleading.”

Trump’s battle with censorship has been ongoing and has escalated in recent months.

Trump called for a repeal of Section 230 back in May, but is now emphasizing the importance of repealing the act.

On Twitter last night Trump wrote, “They and the Fake News, working together, want to SILENCE THE TRUTH. Can’t let that happen. This is what Communist countries do!”

Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”

New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
