Trump Says Twitter and Facebook Are Interfering in 2018 Election



President Donald Trump is continuing to accuse major social media platforms of interfering with conservative voices — this time focusing on what he believes was a coordinated attempt to help Hillary Clinton win the 2016 Presidential election and a continued attack in the 2018 mid-term elections.

The President of the United States was interviewed by conservative news platform The Daily Caller and he stuck to largely disproven claims he’s been making since taking office with ramped up attacks over the last several weeks.

When asked if social media companies are going to continue with their interference in 2018 the President said, “I think they already have” before pivoting back to his campaign against Clinton. “I mean the true interference in the last election was that — if you look at all, virtually all of those companies are super liberal companies in favor of Hillary Clinton.”

The President then claimed that he’s just better at Twitter and social media in general, which somehow allowed him to overcome attacks by the companies that own and control those platforms.

“… If you look at what was going on with Facebook and with Google and all of it, they were very much on her side,” Trump told The Daily Caller.

Following Trump’s original comments, Google released a statement once again reiterating that its platform is based on algorithms that provide no focus on political ideology.

Google and various technology experts were quick to debunk Trump’s claims as you can read here, here, and here.

It doesn’t matter if Donald Trump’s claims are true, what matters to his administration is that his followers believe there is some massive conspiracy somehow being maintained by more than 100,000 employees at America’s largest social media companies.
