Donald Trump, full of threatening actions has now come up with a new threat – to close down all social media companies, despite not possessing the ability to unilaterally do either.
The event happened after Twitter put him on check for tweeting apparently inaccurate information. Twitter added a fact check option for users viewing in which he falsely labeled mail-in voting as “fraudulent”. He also attempted to further disparage the voting method by stating mailboxes could be robbed.
Trump has praised Twitter in the past as it allows him to take his message directly to the world. Despite his accusation of being “silenced”, Twitter and social media in general have been a boon for Trump.
