An independent oversight board upheld Facebook’s decision to ban former President Donald Trump, and OutKick founder Clay Travis says that’s no reason to celebrate.
“It’s the wrong decision,” Clay says. “The social media platforms have become so popular that we are effectively creating a default system in the United States that reflects the Chinese government.”
Clay goes on to explain his point.
“The United States government is not banning Donald Trump, but Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram … you name a big tech company with a substantial audience, they all banned Donald Trump simultaneously,” he says. “Regardless of whether you are a Democrat, a Republican or you don’t care about politics at all, this is an awful precedent.”
Clay goes on to share why he feels this is such a bad — and China-like — move in the video below. Be sure to give it a look.
