President Donald Trump is expected to announce today that he will file a class action lawsuit against Facebook and Twitter on behalf of Americans like himself who have been cancelled by social media. The lawsuit comes after both social media platforms, and other, banned him from using their services.
Trump: “There is no better evidence that big tech is out of control than the fact that they banned the sitting President of the United States earlier this year, a ban that continues to this day,” the former president said during a news conference today. If they can do it to me, they can do it to anyone.”
“I am filing, as the lead class representative, a major class-action lawsuit against the Big Tech giants including Facebook, Google, and Twitter as well as their CEOs Mark Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai, and Jack Dorsey,” he explained.

Trump’s legal effort is supported by the America First Policy Institute, a non-profit free speech legal group. The group’s president and CEO and board chair, former Trump officials Linda McMahon and Brooke Rollins, accompanied him during the announcement. Class action lawsuits would enable him to sue tech CEOs on behalf of a broader group of people that he argues have been censored by biased policies.

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign received tens of thousands of dollars in donations from Facebook and Twitter executives, a Fox News investigation found .
Federal Election Commission records reveal that the same executives in charge of censorship donated almost exclusively to Biden, a pro-abortion Democrat who supports abortions without limits and wants to force taxpayers to pay for them.
According to the investigation, FEC records show several Facebook and Twitter executives gave the maximum political donation of $2,800 to Biden’s campaign.
- Two $2,800 donations from Facebook vice president of public policy Erin Egan (one during the primary election, the second during the general election)
- A $2,800 donation (primary) and $750 donation (general) from Facebook chief revenue officer David Fischer
- A $2,800 donation (primary) from Facebook chief financial officer David Wehner
- A $2,800 donation each from Facebook vice presidents Gene Alston, Michael Verdu, Shahriar Rabii and T.S. Khurana
- A $2,800 donation from Instagram chief operating officer Marne Levine. Instagram is owned by Facebook.
- A $2,800 donation from Twitter vice president Matt Derella
- A $2,800 donation from Twitter senior director Ryan Oliver
- Two $2,800 donations (primary/general) from Twitter senior director of product management James Kelm
All of the donations are public record through the FEC.
The Fox News investigation did not find any donations from top social media executives to President Donald Trump. It found just two donations to Trump from lower level employees at Facebook, neither donation being greater than $300.
According to Newsbusters, Twitter censored Trump and his campaign 436 times, but it did not censor Biden or his campaign once.
Both social media platforms have a long history of censoring pro-life advocates. For example, in October, the Susan B. Anthony List said Facebook banned two of its ads exposing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s support for late-term abortion in the key battleground states of Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, based on a factually incorrect third-party “fact check.”
And in November, Facebook censored an Illinois pro-life organization that is trying to raise money to help pregnant women and babies.
