The Washington Post reports:
President Trump urged Congress Wednesday to take action against Big Tech companies — and said if it didn’t, he would. Trump has butted heads with social media companies in particular recently as Twitter and Facebook increasingly crack down on his posts that run up against their rules.
Twitter has so far labeled five of Trump’s tweets with warning labels, causing Trump to lash out and issue an executive order calling for the government to reconsider a law that shields Internet companies from much liability.
After facing criticism, Facebook said it, too, would label Trump’s posts that violate its policies but that it deems newsworthy enough to leave online. It has not yet used a newsworthy label on a post from Trump.
If Congress doesn’t bring fairness to Big Tech, which they should have done years ago, I will do it myself with Executive Orders. In Washington, it has been ALL TALK and NO ACTION for years, and the people of our Country are sick and tired of it!

The people of our country are sick and tired of you using Big Tech to spread lies and misinformation about COVID-19 and everything.
We’re also sick of you being a trump stooge for Russia.
WE’RE JUST SICK OF YOU.

President Crybaby is mad that he gets some negative trends on Twitter.
150,000 Americans have now died from COVID. Do something about that instead of spending your time whining about tweets. If you can’t handle the job, resign.
