Since both Twitter and Facebook have silenced the Former Guy and ripped the rug right from underneath him, Trump no longer has a major platform to spew his lies, threats, and racist rants. According to Axios, the Former Guy plans to launch a bigly lawsuit against the two social media giants.
Details: Trump is scheduled to make an announcement at a press conference today at 11 am.
Trump’s legal effort is supported by the America First Policy Institute, a non-profit focused on perpetuating Trump’s policies.
The group’s president and CEO and board chair, former Trump officials Linda McMahon and Brooke Rollins, will accompany him during the announcement.
Class action lawsuits would enable him to sue the two tech CEOs on behalf of a broader group of people that he argues have been censored by biased policies.
Facebook and Twitter declined to comment.
To date, Trump and other conservative critics have not presented any substantial evidence that either platform is biased against conservatives in its policies or implementation of them.
Trump has sued many people and companies in the past but has rarely “followed through in terms of winning a judgment or even taking cases to trial.”
