The ex-president donald trump shared with his followers of the social network Truth Social a video in which explains what he plans to do if he wins the 2024 election. The businessman presented a five-point plan focused on censorship, a topic that is in vogue after Elon Musk gave the green light to the publication of the reasons why Twitter prevented Post from publishing on said social network an investigation into the computer of Hunter Biden.
Trump promised that he will avoid at all costs that the US government classifies “lawful speech” as misinformation or disinformationHe also attacked what he called the “left-wing censorship regime.” He also cited an alleged shadow collaboration effort to “suppress vital information on everything from elections to public health.”
“The censorship cartel must be dismantled and destroyed, and it must happen immediately,” Trump said.
The businessman also assured that he plans to prohibit through an executive order the so-called collusion between the federal government and any person, company or group that seeks to stifle legal discourse. “I will then prohibit federal money from being used to label national speech as misinformation or disinformation” In addition, he would be in charge of firing any federal bureaucrat found to have participated in “national censorship.”
His plans also include asking the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into those “involved in the new regime of online censorship”.
In addition, it will ask Congress to change the requirements for immunity protection under Section 230.. Online platforms would be eligible only if they “meet high standards of neutrality, transparency, fairness, and non-discrimination.”
also promised defund non-profit organizations and academic programs if they support censorship “if any university in the United States is found to have engaged in past censorship or election interference, such as flagging social media content to remove the blacklist, those universities should lose their federal research dollars and federal student loan support for a period of five years and maybe longer…”.
Social networks are also in Trump’s sights who assured that the government would have to obtain a court order before any official could remove the virtual content.
