By CCN: President Donald Trump has made the first move in the fightback against internet and social media censorship. The White House just launched a website inviting U.S citizens to share their stories of censorship by Silicon Valley’s tech giants.
Kicked Off Social Media? Tell Daddy Trump!
The website app, labelled the Tech Bias Story Sharing Tool, urges citizens to share their personal stories of censorship on social media. Regardless of the nature of the individual’s views, posts or politics, the user is invited to ‘tell Trump’. The website states:
“No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump.”
In what amounts to perhaps the first retaliation against Silicon Valley since they went full-SJW, the tool is a reminder that foundational principles, such as freedom of speech, won’t be given up lightly. The website states:
“SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS should advance FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Yet too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear “violations” of user policies.”
This comes just hours after President Trump rejected calls to censor the internet in the wake of the events surrounding the Christchurch Massacre in New Zealand.

Politicians from New Zealand and France drafted a proposal which demands countries ‘improve their moderation practices’.
