Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President. More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech—all voices should be heard. In the meantime, competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President. But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?
So…the head of the Retrumplican Party, once a bastion of free speech defenders, applauds and even encourages the banning of non-governmental social media platforms in the name of free speech even though the marketplace is open to any and all competitors??
Best part? Trump’s excuse for not having done something sooner: I wanted to but couldn’t because that damn Mark Zuckerberg kept showing up at my house for dinner whispering sweet nothings in my ear and telling me how great I was. C’mon people, how was Trump supposed to resist that??!!
