Transcript for Trump wants to get to the 'bottom of' alleged anti-conservative bias on social media
While we have to do something I tell you I have many many millions of followers on Twitter and it's different than it used to be. That things are happening names are taken off people aren't getting through you've heard the same complaints. And it seems to be at that conservative if they're Republicans if there is certain group. That is discrimination in big discrimination I see it absolutely on Twitter. And FaceBook which I have also and others I see but I really focus more on the one platform. And have many flat many different platforms it's I guess we have sixty million almost sixty million on Twitter and if you Adam all up its way over a hundred million people and I get to see firsthand what's going on and it's not good. And we use the word collusion very loosely all the time. And I will tell you there is collusion. With respect to that because something has to be going on and when you get the vaccine. Back office. Statements made by the executives of the various companies and you see the level of in many cases hatred they have for certain group of people that happened to be in power that happened to of won the election. You say that's really unfair so something's happening with. Those groups of folks that are running FaceBook and Google and Twitter. And I do think we have to get to the bottom of it is very fair it's elusive and it's very very. It's fair to say that we have to we have to do something about it and if we don't you know the the incredible thing is that we can win an election and we have such. A stacked deck and that includes networks. Frankly if you look at the networks you look at the news you look at the news casts I call it fake news. I'm very proud to hear the president use the term fake news. But you look at what's happening with the networks you look at what's happening with different shows and it's. It's hard to believe we win but you know I'll tell you what it really shows that people are Smart that people get. The go through all of that. Whatever it is they're fed and in the end they pull the right lever. It's a very very a dangerous situation so I think I agree I think something has to be looked at very closely.
