During an interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney Thursday morning, President Donald Trump slammed Twitter and Facebook as extensions of the Democrat National Committee.
"It's out of control. It's like a third arm, maybe a first arm, of the the DNC. Twitter and Facebook, they're all, really it's like a massive campaign contribution. This is a third arm of the DNC, radical left movement," Trump said.
Trump's comments came after the platforms deliberately censored and blocked a New York Post article about Hunter and Joe Biden's foreign business dealings.
Last night Twitter suspended the personal account of White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for sharing the story.
Censoring political speech is what you’d expect in countries like China, North Korea, or Iran — NOT America.— Kayleigh McEnany (@PressSec) October 15, 2020
This should scare every single American who values free and open discourse. Do NOT let Big Tech silence YOU??#TwitterCensorship

Meanwhile, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee plan to subpoena Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for emergency testimony next Friday.
"This is election interference and we are 19 days out from an election. It has no precedence in American democracy. The Senate Judiciary Committee wants to know what the hell is going on," Republican Senator Ted Cruz said.
