“Twitter is completely suppressing free speech and I, as president, will not allow that to happen!” He added.
That’s not all: “Republicans – reads a subsequent tweet – feel that social media platforms completely silence the voices of conservatives. We will make regulations or close them, because we cannot allow this to happen. We saw what they tried to do, and failed in 2016. We can’t allow that to happen again, in a more sophisticated way. Just like we can’t allow elections in the mail to take root in the country. ”
