Trump to file a class-action suit against social media giants for removing him from their platforms

Former President Donald Trump is filing a lawsuit against several tech giants, including Facebook and Twitter for removing him from their platforms, according to The Washington Examiner

The former president announced his intention  to sue Google, Facebook, and Twitter along with their CEOs in a July 7 press conference in Bedminster, New Jersey, going on to explain that the suit was filed by his attorneys in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida

“We’re demanding an end to the shadow banning, a stop to the silencing, a stop to the blacklisting, vanishing, and canceling,” Trump said.

The suit by the former Commander-in-Chief states that “defendant Facebook has increasingly engaged in impermissible censorship resulting from threatened legislative action, a misguided reliance upon Section 230 of the Communications Act, 47 USC § 230, and willful participation in joint activity with federal actors” and Facebook’s “status thus rises beyond that of a private company to that of a state actor.”

Attorneys for Trump are attempting to convince the court that the social media platforms in question banned him after they were coerced by congressional hearings to do so.

Principal attorney at Oak View Law Group, Lyle Solomon, argued that the defendants could counter with the same argument about Trump himself:

“If the government forces Facebook to allow content they do not like on their platform, it is effectively violating Facebook’s freedom of speech to determine what they choose to allow on their property,” Solomon said

Justin Crump, CEO of intelligence and risk advisory consultancy Sibylline explained what the suit will mean from a political perspective saying it was a “smart political move,” on the part of Trump.

“However, they are unlikely to succeed and set a dangerous trajectory for the relationship between government and private companies,” argues Justin Crump, CEO of intelligence and risk advisory consultancy Sibylline. “They keep Trump relevant to voters, play to the conservative strength of painting Big Tech as the liberal boogeyman, and off the back of his case, Save America PAC has sent text messages to followers asking for donations that the PAC could use to help pro-Trump candidates in future elections.”

Would love to see him sue Nancy Pelosi too for harassment. She hassled him his entire presidency and now he’s no longer in office the witch still won’t quit. Put her on the defensive for a change.
