Trump White House Launches Online Tool for People to Report Social Media ‘Political Bias’

The White House is inviting all Americans to complain directly to the Trump administration about social media bans and suspensions that may be evidence of “political bias” with a new online tool launched Wednesday.

“The Trump Administration is fighting for free speech online,” the official White House account tweeted Wednesday while unveiling the new reporting tool, which also asks people to sign up to receive Trump’s email newsletters so they can stay up to date on his “fight for free speech.” “No matter your views, if you suspect political bias has caused you to be censored or silenced online, we want to hear about it!”

The White House announcement calling on Americans to open up about their social media experience stops short of singling out Twitter or Facebook but appears to frame large tech companies as a public threat, warning that “too many Americans” have had their “accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies.” Those users are then encouraged to “share [their] story with President Trump.”
