‘Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Democrats it is ridiculous’ – President Trump

US President Donald Trump has accused America’s tech giants of having a liberal bias and claiming Twitter was making it more difficult to follow his account.

“Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Dems it is ridiculous. Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join @realDonaldTrump. They have removed many names & greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING” Trump tweeted.

Trump is a regular critic of social media and his criticism echoed another attack on Twitter as recently as October, when he again accused the platform of stifling the growth of his account.
