This. EXACTLY this.

The OP is just ANOTHER example that Trump, nor his base, really even understands the basis for constitutional free speech. Such ignorance and hypocrisy on display.

I guess that's why Trump said I love uneducated! Example is right here - OP believes Tweeter is press and that means it has something to do with free speech

The left-leaning editorial bias is well known throughout social media and Twitter is in the news as offender almost daily !!!.

Trump Calls for Banned Conservatives to Be Reinstated by Twitter
https://www.theepochtimes.com/trump-...r_2956585.html

President Donald Trump called on Twitter to restore the accounts of conservatives who have been banned from the platform in recent weeks, continuing his longtime criticism of social media censorship.



Is Trump going to unblock all the twitter users he blocked himself?

Didn't think so.

Only if he unblocks Rosie O'Donnell. Oh please unblock each other so I can watch the ensuing Twitter war madness. Let the country smile together for a day or two.

Any non-Trump supporter is excluded from a Trump rally. Even peaceful people that pass security screenings aren't allowed if it's deemed that they aren't a Trump supporter - such as someone with a hat or t-shirt that's about a Democrat related issue.

Trump doesn't care about free speech unless it's Pro-Trump. All else he wants silenced.
Correct. He's a man that said not clapping for him is treason. What a joke.

Twitter would never ban him.

Liberals love money; they only want to confiscate other people's money.

It's like global warming. The rich AGW crowd still loves their private jets; they want other people to change lifestyles.

What on earth are you on about?


1. Twitter is free


2. Don't conservatives like money then? Do they all live in caves and live off their hunting and gathering skills?


3. Thread has zero to do with global warming.
