President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale said Thursday that Twitter would be over if Trump decided to leave for an alternative.
Parscale was responding to an Axios article published Thursday that claimed a conservative social media platform wouldn’t work, saying “[y]ou can’t create a Fox News for social.”
“Yeah. Maybe. But if @realDonaldTrump leaves @Twitter for another platform Twitter is done. Put a fork in it,” he wrote on Twitter.
Parscale has been vocal in his opposition to reports of tech giants censoring conservatives, describing tech giants as Orwellian in an op-ed for The Washington Examiner Aug. 16.
“Big Tech’s anti-conservative bias is positively institutional. Facebook, Google (YouTube), and Twitter all work with the Southern Poverty Law Center, a far-left organization with a proven track record of anti-conservative bias, to decide what is and isn’t ‘hate speech,'” Parscale wrote.
Parscale pointed to the many examples of Facebook, Twitter, Google and YouTube’s recent bans on outspoken conservative pundits, The Daily Caller News Foundation reported. (RELATED: Twitter Allegedly Working Overtime To Ban Conservatives)
Trump also warned Google, Facebook and Amazon that they are in a “very antitrust situation” Thursday, but didn’t comment on whether he’d break them up, TheDCNF reported.
“I won’t comment on the breaking up, of whether it’s that or Amazon or Facebook,” Trump said, Bloomberg reported. “As you know, many people think it is a very antitrust situation, the three of them. But I just, I won’t comment on that.”
