The president of the United States, Donald Trump attacks Facebook for blocking the accounts of personalities known for their racist and xenophobic positions.
Trump launched strong criticism against the American company Facebook for blocking the accounts of personalities with racist positions on Saturday, such as Alex Jones – famous for spreading absurd conspiracy theories and false information – after the social network declared them “dangerous individuals”.
“I will closely monitor the censorship of U.S. CITIZENS on social networking platforms,” the U.S. president wrote in his Twitter account, which he also criticized for censoring Republicans and giving more voice to Democrats.
The White House tenant insisted that things “are getting worse and harder” for conservatives on the Internet and defended actor James Woods, who in one tuit had demanded that they hang those who do not support Trump and those who ask to remove him from power.
He also announced his support for right-wing and racist Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer, who also saw access to their Facebook accounts restricted for propagating extremist and offensive material.
Nor were the media such as CNN, MSNBC, The Washington Post and The New York Times saved, as Trump demanded that Twitter and Facebook suspend their accounts for spreading “fake news” about the United States and its administration.
Since coming to power in 2017, the controversial U.S. president has been in a constant open war against any media that dares to criticize him or his followers.
