Donald Trump Accuses Tech Giants of Colluding with Democrats by Alexander Marlow, Matthew Boyle, Amanda House, & Charlie Spiering for Breitbart
President Donald Trump accused companies like Facebook, Twitter, and Google of colluding with Democrats to censor his supporters online to their political advantage.
“Actually it’s incredible that I won the election because you know it was so rigged against me,” he said. “It wasn’t Russians. Russia collusion was a delusion. But what there is, is there was collusion between the Democrats and these tech companies.”
The president spoke about political bias in top Silicon Valley companies in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News on Monday.
The president said that any Republican running in 2020 would face a “tremendous disadvantage” in social media after he surprised tech companies by beating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
“It’s totally steered, which has been proven now, totally steered toward the Democrats and yet I won,” he said.
Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow told the president he would be running against not only the Democrats and the media but also against the big tech companies during his presidential run in 2020.
The president responded by noting Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign proposal to break up the big tech companies.
“Isn’t it funny? Elizabeth Warren called for their total breakup,” he said. “I do smile though, they’re so protective of her.”
He sympathized with critics of the big tech companies like Facebook, Google, and Twitter who wanted to regulate the companies.
“I understand a lot of people wanting to look into it. I mean normally I’d like to say let it be free, let it all be free, but it’s not free,” Trump said. “It’s really run by a small number of people.”
The president also referred to reports from Breitbart News exposing tech bias against conservatives in companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google.
