Trump sues Facebook, Twitter, YouTube

The companies cited concerns that Trump would incite violence to muzzle his voice as though they were constitutionally mandated law-enforcers


Former President Donald Trump has filed suit against three of the country’s biggest tech companies, claiming he and other conservatives have been wrongfully censored. But legal experts say the suits are likely doomed to fail, given existing precedent and legal protections.

Trump announced the action against Facebook, Twitter and Google’s YouTube, along with the companies’ Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey and Sundar Pichai, at a press conference on 7 July in New Jersey, where he demanded that his accounts be reinstated.

Trump has been suspended from the platforms since January, when his followers violently stormed the Capitol building, trying to block Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s presidential win. The companies cited concerns that Trump would incite further violence and have kept him locked out. All three declined comment on 7 July.

“We’re demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and cancelling that you know so well,” Trump said at a news conference in Bedminster, New Jersey. The suits, he added, will be filed in the southern district of Florida.

Trump explained that he has decided to sue the three CEOs as their social media platforms have become “enforcers of illegal, unconstitutional censorship”.

The former reality TV star was banned from various social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and a few others. The decision was taken as a response to Donald Trump’s posts on social media platforms on 6 January when the Capitol riot took place. Facebook and Twitter were one of the first ones to suspend and ban former president Donald Trump’s account as the officials.

Since his ban from social media, the infamous President has tried launching his own blog, which was shut down within a month. After that, his aide has launched a social media app, GETTR, which resembles Twitter.
