Trump rails against Twitter as CEO struggles to defend Post censorship

President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday to slam the social media platform, as its CEO — along with the heads of Google and Facebook — faces a drubbing from a Senate panel primarily addressing the censorship of The Post’s Hunter Biden exposé.

“It’s amazing. Twitter refuses to allow the any mention of the Biden corruption story which was carried so well on @TuckerCarlson last night. It’s the biggest story and Big Tech, together with the Lamestream Media, isn’t allowing a word to be said about it,” the commander-in-chief tweeted late Wednesday morning during the hearing.

It is unclear what specific comment the president was responding to.

As the hearings continued, the commander-in-chief offered his thoughts on corruption in Big Tech.

“The USA doesn’t have Freedom of the Press, we have Suppression of the Story, or just plain Fake News. So much has been learned in the last two weeks about how corrupt our Media is, and now Big Tech, maybe even worse. Repeal Section 230!” he wrote in his second of three tweets on the matter.

“Media and Big Tech are not covering Biden Corruption!” he added minutes later.

Trump has previously accused Twitter and Facebook of interfering in the election by censoring The Post’s reporting.

In an interview with the Sinclair Broadcast Group, Trump said the tech companies were “trying to protect” Hunter Biden’s father, Joe Biden, Trump’s Democratic presidential challenger, but “they got caught and that’s turning out to be just as big a story.”

Asked if it constitutes election interference, Trump said, “Yeah, 100 percent.”
