    hahaha.. For you Democrits.. HOW does it feel to have someone want to censor you as you have been lying for so many years and getting away with it and your FAKE PARTIAL NEWS.

    '

    Its not him censoring.. ITS SOCIAL MEDIA wanting to CENSOR and control what you read or hear so they can control what you learn or know. Censorship works both ways unless BOTH SIDES are allowed FREE SPEACH.

    NO.....President Trump is NOT violating the U.S. Constitution!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Remember, it's the social media sites who are censoring comments - NOT the President.  President Trump is trying to get these media sites to accept comments from everyone under the Freedom of Speech....which the media sites are ignoring.

      Not really, because private media platforms may legally conser content on their platform. The problem for Twitter is that by censoring, they become publishers, which puts them in a different category.

    Trump (as usual) has no actual power to carry ought his threat.  Everyone but him knows that.

    You forgot the part in the Constitution that protects speech. He can say whatever he wants. He doesn't have the power to do what he says.

      Categories of speech that are given lesser or no protection by the First Amendment (and therefore may be restricted) include obscenity, fraud, child pornography, speech integral to illegal conduct, speech that incites imminent lawless action, speech that violates intellectual ....

    DEAD WRONG. He threatened to PUNISH social media for censorship. He ABSOLUTELY DID NOT threaten to censor anything.

      Congress, not Trump, has the power to reprimand. Besides, Twitter didn't take his comment down, just said "fact check"

    What part of the constitution did he violate? He did not threaten to censor social media he said "Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down, before we can ever allow this to happen." which is in no way illegal,

      Trump's tweet, saying "voting by mail is illegal" An egregious LIE!, Twitter suggests you fact check the comment.

    Trump has p*ssed on the Constitution so many times, it is head spinning. Lying Don says voting by mail is illegal, such bullsh*t! There are five states Washington, Oregon, Utah, Colorado & Hawaii ALWAYS votes by mail. Military, housebound, elderly, and the pure convenience of it. Even Twitter is sick of the lies, and telling people how to find the truth, makes Trump squirm. I'm glad someone has the courage to call him out!

    Oh yes! Speech is regulated by the Constitution: The First Amendment says that Congress shall make laws that shall abridge the freedom of speech, particularly when a group of people doesn't like what a person or group says and shall, by all rights given, put people in prison if these people dare to speak. (Idiot)
