Facebook and Twitter have openly violated the free speech rights of Americans in conflict with their Globalist world view and attempts at controlling the news and information reaching the American voters. The monopoly on social media they exercise is gigantic and oppressive. Fewer reasons were given for dismantling the AT&T telephone monopoly fifty years ago. Facebook and Twitter monopolies need to be broken up. The outrageous, right in your face censorship and intentional disruption of free communication by them is accentuated by their recent collusions with governments and even their oppressive partnerships with Communist China, enabling the continued and increased harassment and imprisonment of people exercising simply religious freedoms.

Trump does not appear to be all that concerned about who owns or operates Twitter.

Wonder how much information about the President has been compromised because he is constantly using it as his policy making tool?

Talk about a threat to National Security!

You know nothing about national security and haven't been paying attention to Trump's tweets, else you'd know he never discusses anything affecting national security. You just go right on wondering.

People who really understand Facebook and how it works, can set their accounts.
If they are not total redneck idiots, they can set their accounts to private, so that it solves the problems of 3rd party invasions. Which is probably what the POTUS does.

ROFL,

That's bizarre

The issue of contention is related to data mining to determine how to best influence and market to idiots easily manipulated by shiny pictures, objects and half brained narratives.

Well that's not true.

Trump divulged to the Russian ambassadors he invited into the oval office, on television, information which Israel shared with the US intelligence agencies.

Trump leaks national security secrets like a sieve. He's got a Staff unable to quality for position essential security clearances.

The Trump cabal cannot it seems tobe trusted to hold a glass of water.

Former military and intelligent personnel have a general consensus that Trump anywhere near the oval office is a stage four security threat.

Recall Trump'( Cadet Bone Spur's) narcissistic statement that he knows more than the generals?

Trump can't hold a glass of water. He's shown that divulging secrets Israel shared with US intelligence agencies.

Look at the Buffon's staff in the oval office. Practically no one has the capacity to be granted the position essential security clearances but they're handling and exposed to classified information.

The Trump Administration function on the basic there are no national secrets.

Trump being present in the US Capitol is a grave threat to the security of the United States

You prove evey post you really don't know enough to sensibly discuss American politics.

Our uranium?

You don't have two nickels to rub together so it's not possible for you to own a share of any uranium mining operation.

Stop playing the part of the plagiarising imbecile. You have as much knowledge of uranium as a you do to fly a F/14 jet.

Libtard media are proven liars, screamers, and haters of true speech.
They hate Christianity, so they call it hate speech.
Anything they hate or are biased against they call them phobias, without any intelligent discussion about it or anything.
They just yell RACIST and run away. They keep screaming to silence the opposition, without discussion.
They are as dumb as their heros, the the immigrant islamic terrorists.
