President Trump to big tech: We are now monitoring YOU… You have no idea the problems you’re causing for yourself

President Trump issued something of a warning yesterday in telling big tech social media platforms they’re now being watched closely by his administration.

“I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms,” the President tweeted. “This is the United States of America — and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH! We are monitoring and watching, closely.”

“The wonderful Diamond and Silk have been treated so horribly by Facebook,” the President added. “They work so hard and what has been done to them is very sad – and we’re looking into [it]. It’s getting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!”

“So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!”

President Trump’s comments come a day after political commentators Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer and Milo Yiannopoulos were permanently suspended from Facebook and Instagram.

The social media giant announced the suspension of the “dangerous individuals” for violating the company’s policies on hate speech and promoting violence.

“We’ve always banned individuals or organisations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson said. “The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”

Donald Trump Jr also responded to the purge saying: “The purposeful and calculated silencing of conservatives by Facebook and the rest of the Big Tech monopoly men should terrify everyone.

“It appears they’re taking their censorship campaign to the next level. Ask yourself, how long before they come to purge you? We must fight back,” he said.

Prominent conservative figures praised the President for responding to the latest suspensions, however, others have suggested the President needs to do more than just monitor these platforms.

“Less monitoring and more action please, Mr President,” Paul Joseph Watson said.

Tucker Carlson also weighed in, asking who’s standing up for us? “Where are our leaders in Congress? Where is the White House?”

Conservatives have called the President to do more, warning the social media giants are silencing his most effective political voices and allies just 18 months before the 2020 election.

President Trump has since doubled-down on his criticism, warning big tech and the Democrat Party they have no idea the problems they’re causing for themselves.

“How can it be possible that James Woods (and many others), a strong but responsible Conservative Voice, is banned from Twitter? Social Media and Fake News Media, together with their partner, the Democrat Party, have no idea the problems they are causing for themselves. VERY UNFAIR!” the President tweeted.
