When Ford Pardoned Nixon, the Imperial Presidency was pretty much cemented into stone. Reagan broke laws and he was, uh, real sorry about it or whatever. Bush. various wars, flooded cities - look forward!Blackmailing states, mail in ballots vs fed help ... how the fuck is that not "Id like you to do me a favor though" part 2.0? Why are they not running impeachment proceedings right now? Firing of IG's? Is he not required to give Congress 30 days warning?
President Donald Trump has threatened to "strongly regulate" or close down social media platforms if they curb the speech of conservative users.
The commander-in-chief said on Wednesday morning that his administration would consider the measures if the tech platforms were to "totally silence conservative voices."
He also urged social media firms to "clean up" their acts a day after Twitter labeled two of his tweets as "potentially misleading."
Posting on social media, Trump said: "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen.
"We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016. We can't let a more sophisticated version of that happen again."
After claiming that voting by mail would lead to a "free for all on cheating" and electoral fraud, the president added: "Whoever cheated the most would win. Likewise, Social Media. Clean up your act, NOW!!!!"
Newsweek has contacted the White House and Twitter for further comment. This article will be updated with any response.
Trump issued his warning to social media companies after Twitter fact-checkedposts he made claiming that mail-in voting increased instances of fraud.
The social media platform tagged the president's two tweets with a message that linked to a page with statements refuting a connection between mail-in voting and increased voter fraud.
Senate Republican traitors.Blackmailing states, mail in ballots vs fed help ... how the fuck is that not "Id like you to do me a favor though" part 2.0? Why are they not running impeachment proceedings right now? Firing of IG's? Is he not required to give Congress 30 days warning?
Mofo is not going to stop tweeting no matter what his advisors tell him. He's a stubborn SOB, pretty old and set in his ways, and tweeting is one of his trademarks. Trust me, he will NOT stop tweeting, doesn't matter what happens. He'll tweet to his grave. Less and less people will pay any attention, that's the way it will be.Seeing as if Trump's advisers want him to quit tweeting, from his opponent's point of view isn't it logical that he should keep on doing it because every time he does it's another nail in his political coffin?
