President Donald Trump plans to “strongly regulate” or close down social media platforms for silencing conservative voices. He will sign an executive order “pertaining to social media” on Thursday, according to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
According to Chinese dissident Miles Guo, the Chinese Communist Party is spending $4 billion on censorship around the world for June 4th alone, an anniversary of the 1989 democratic movement in China which ended with the Tiananmen Massacre on June 4th.
The CCP is trying to create divisions and chaos in the US to stop Trump from getting re-elected. Some of the censorship money is paid to social media companies like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
There have been concerns over Twitter’s recent hiring of an American Chinese artificial intelligence expert Fei-Fei Li, who has close ties with the Chinese Communist Party. Twitter is notorious for suppressing accounts owned by anti-CCP activists, and an increasing number of Twitter accounts owned by Chinese dissidents were suspended without reason after Li joined Twitter.
