The latest gem from Trump is that he is trying to remove the ability of companies like Facebook and twitter to police the content of their platforms. This comes after twitter put up a warning over a couple of trumps tweets concerning postal voting, which was patently untrue.
Trump is trying to stifle these companies. He has already refused to allow some news reporters into his news conferences as well as refusing to answer questions.
USA who prides itself on its level if democracy.
We are now seeing the same pattern emerging here. Cummings has already refused to allow ministers to be interviewed by various television/ radio shows. And Johnson is beginning to refuse to answer questions he doesn’t like.
Today he prevented two scientific officers from answering questions put to them by the media.
We know that extreme pressure was put in the bbc to take Maitlis off newsnight.
This is a very worrying and unprecedented turn of events.
