Yesterday, President Trump retweeted a tweet by his youngest son, Eric Trump, who tweeted the undercover Project Veritas video exposing a top executive at Google talking about how they are working to prevent “The next Trump situation.” Eric Trump accused big tech of corruption, saying “Google should be absolutely ashamed,” by the revelation.
I hope everyone reads and watches this video to see the corruption of big tech. @Google should be absolutely ashamed.

According the the Wall Street Journal -The White House will hold a social media summit on July 11, aiming to have a “robust conversation” about online platforms at a time when they are under increasing attack in Washington.
White House confirmation of the summit came after President Trump dialed up his criticism of tech companies on Wednesday morning. He said in an interview on Fox Business Network that online giants such as Google and Facebook Inc. are “trying to rig the election,” while Twitter Inc. is making it harder for users to follow him.
The administration moves appear to suggest that the White House and its Republican allies will make alleged anticonservative bias a major issue heading into the 2020 election, as they did in 2018.
In a Fox Business Network interview on Wednesday, host Maria Bartiromo asked the president if he was concerned that Silicon Valley titans were ‘censoring conservatives’ in advance of the 2020 election.
‘Twitter is just terrible what they do,’ he replied. ‘They don’t let you get the word [out]. I’ve had so many people come to me: “Sir, I can’t join you on Twitter.” I see what’s happening, 100 per cent.’
‘These people are all Democrats. It’s totally biased toward Democrats,’ Trump complained. ‘If I announced tomorrow I am going to become a nice liberal Democrat, I would pick up 5 times more followers.’

It’s only been one day since Trump announced his Social Media Summit and Twitter already appears to be reacting. Is Twitter social media’s new “Angry Bird?”
The Daily Mail reports that Twitter has begun placing virtual warning labels on politicians’ messages that it would ban as offensive if the identity of their authors didn’t automatically make them matters of public interest.
The move, announced Thursday, came barely 24 hours after President Donald Trump accused the social media platform’s leaders of censoring him in a bid to limit the circulation of his ideas.
Twitter’s ‘safety’ team wrote in a blog post that when office-holders or candidates posted material that ‘violated our rules’ in the past, it often chose to ignore the problem in the interest of poliical free speech.
But now in some cases it will force users to click on a disclaimer before viewing such material, and purposely depress its ability to go viral.
It won’t be long before all conservative media publications like ours will disappear from tech platforms, where only liberals are allowed to thrive. Please sign up for our emails to keep up with the latest news: https://100percentfedup.com/subscribe/
