Trump Issues Warning to Big Tech, Biden Administration About Censorship
President Trump on Tuesday struck a defiant tone and said Big Tech companies made a big mistake when they cracked down on him and his supporters and went on to say Joe Biden and Democrats to be careful of what they wish for when it comes to the 25th Amendment.
Trump spoke to a scrum of reporters at Andrews Air Force Base. He denied allegations that he ignited the riot at the Capitol and said Twitter and other tech companies overreached in their effort to snuff out his movement.
“I think that big tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country, and I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them,” he said.
Trump told reporters that he has been warning about Big Tech censorship for a long time. He also pointed out that the same Democrats railing against the riot at the Capitol cheered on riots over the summer.
Jim Cramer, the CNBC host, said Monday that Trump’s ban on the platform could have dire consequences for the company.
“I think that there were a lot of people who literally knew that the president was the most important person and that you’d have to keep checking him,” Cramer said. “And then you’d have to check people who talk about him. You just had this endless wave, this web that the president created, and it was action and reaction.”
He called Trump a great salesperson for Twitter.
Trump was headed to the Southern Border in Alamo, Texas. He addressed the media once again in the Lone Star State and called the tech crackdown a continuation of the “greatest witch hunt” in the country’s history.
He said that his administration has repeated for the past four years that it respects the U.S. and its traditions and the rule of law. He, once again called for calm.
