Trump to Sue Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey

Videos by OutKick

Rumors Tuesday night suggested that former President Donald Trump would unveil a new social media platform in an announcement on Wednesday. However, Axios now reports that Trump will instead announce class action lawsuits against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

UPDATE: Trump has made this official, adding that he will also sure Google to “represent Americans who have had their First Amendment rights violated.”

America First Policy Institute is behind Trump’s legal effort. AFP’s Linda McMahon and Brooke Rollins, two former Trump officials, will accompany him during his announcement.

Following the events of January 6, Twitter and Facebook removed Trump from their platforms. Facebook has banned Trump for at least two years. Twitter, meanwhile, plans to keep him off its service forever.

How pathetic is that?

With a class-action lawsuit, Trump and his team will claim Twitter and Facebook censored him because of a political bias. Undoubtedly, that’s true.

It’s safe to assume other prominent conservatives whom Big Teach has censored will speak up in support of Trump.

While I often don’t take sides in lawsuits, in this case, I have to root against the frauds who protected Hunter Biden and gave China time to cover up evidence that the coronavirus leaked from a Wuhan lab.

Win or lose, Trump continues to fight the battles that should be fought.

  1. As much as I want Trump to win here this is a difficult fight. The first amendment protects speech from government infringement, not private corporations. I’m of the opinion that an unholy merger of the Dem Party and Big Tech has created a workaround this fact so there is an argument to be made. After all a merger of private corporations and government is one of the hallmarks of fascism so it’s worth fighting. Regardless it would be Precedent making and a legal landmark for a generation if Trump wins.

    • Look up Section 230.

      Here’s what Justice Clarence Thomas said about it. “If the analogy between common carriers (utility companies) and digital platforms is correct, then an answer may arise for dissatisfied platform users who would appreciate not being blocked: laws that restrict the platform’s right to exclude.”

  2. Discovery will be interesting…perhaps we’ll see just how much involvement and influence the government actually has with these private businesses. That said, the “utility” argument is more likely to succeed. IMO at least.
