President Donald Trump accused Facebook, Twitter, and Google of censoring accounts and making it more difficult to find conservative personalities, in a Tuesday morning tweet.

Trump has long believed that these Silicon Valley behemoths are censoring conservative viewpoints, tweeting his anger at the companies on several occasions.

The president also went after these companies in August during a meeting, telling reporters, “I think that Google and Facebook and Twitter, I think they treat conservatives and Republicans very unfairly. I could tell you that I have personal experience.”

“You know what we want? Not regulation, we want fairness,” he added. “We want fairness and we are all very happy. I mean. I’m president. You’re talking about a tremendous amount of people. We want to see fairness. Very important.”

Trump also told The Daily Caller in an exclusive September Oval Office interview that social media companies “already have” interfered in U.S. elections on behalf of Democratic candidates. “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.”

“Maybe I did a better job because I’m good with the Twitter and I’m good at social media, but the truth is they were all on Hillary Clinton’s side, and 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 continued.
