Donald Trump is fed up and tired of talking about the mistreatment he’s endured from his biggest enemy: Big Tech.
The former President is now doing something about it.
Fighting back, Trump has filed a class action lawsuit against both Facebook and Twitter.
Shortly after President Trump made his first political appearance since leaving the White House with a rally in the key swing state of Ohio, the GOP standard-bearer and his team are reportedly preparing to fire off their latest salvo in the longstanding war between Trump and America’s social media giants.
With Trump suspended from Facebook until at least January 2023, Axios reports that Trump is preparing to file a class action lawsuit against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Trump has also been indefinitely suspended from Twitter. In the lawsuit, Trump’s lawyers will argue that both platforms enforce systematic censorship against conservatives.
Offering some insight into Trump’s legal strategy, Axios said a class action lawsuit could enable Trump to sue the two CEOs individually on behalf of a broader group of people whom, he argues, have been unfairly censored by the biased CEOs.
Even though it got the scoop, Axios appeared to dismiss the importance of the lawsuit, claiming in it report that “Trump and other conservative critics have not presented any substantial evidence that either platform is biased against conservatives in its policies or implementation of them.”
However, it looks like the market is taking Trump’s threats seriously: shares of Facebook and Twitter (the companies that Zuck and Dorsey respectively lead) traded lower on the news.Zero Hedge
Trump is expected to personally announce the lawsuit at 11:00 a.m. Eastern today.
This lawsuit is good news for all conservatives. Big Tech is too powerful and is controlling the country’s “town square” conversations, which is completely un-American and wrong.
The lawsuit is helpful not only for Trump, but for all of us.
