Trump touts his record on environment

Trump touts his record on environment

In the middle of a morning tweet storm that touched on everything from the census to the Pledge of Allegiance, Trump said that all news media outlets would all be endorsing him "at some point, one way or the other".

Trump has repeatedly claimed that firms such as Facebook, Google and Twitter - who were not invited to the summit - discriminate against him and his supporters, even though his own Twitter account has almost 62 million followers.

The stay-at-home dad in Kansas told NPR that when he got the email invitation to the White House, he thought it could be spam. All three companies have denied political bias.

Twitter spokeswoman Katie Rosborough, in a statement, said Twitter enforces its "rules impartially for all users, regardless of their background or political affiliation".

With more than 61 million followers, Trump has one of the most-followed accounts on Twitter.

"We are constantly working to improve our systems and will continue to be transparent in our efforts", the statement said.

Digital rights activists and others warned that removing the protection - codified as Section 230 of a 1996 law - could undermine free speech protections and harm the internet ecosystem.

Social media was a key component of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has been actively using it throughout his presidency.

Trump was dealt a setback Tuesday in his ongoing legal battle against Twitter. A bipartisan push for new data privacy legislation has emerged in Congress. Regulators at the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission are pursuing antitrust investigations of Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon. "And I know for a fact, I mean, a lot of people try and follow me, and it's very hard", the president alleged. He leads a House Judiciary subcommittee that has opened a bipartisan probe into the tech giants' market conduct.

Trump, who frequently slams social media, uses Twitter as a personal sounding board and to announce potential policy decisions.

"If you become the public square, you really need to offer First Amendment protections to people", Mitchell said to NPR. Kamala Harris' ethnicity, reportedly has been invited; Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk; James O'Keefe; and right-wing meme creator "Carpe Donktum".

"The Trump administration's social media summit is a gathering of groups and individuals who have no business at the White House", said Heidi Beirich, of the Southern Poverty Law Center, an Alabama-based watchdog. "Hopefully these companies can self-correct". "Think tanks and publishers are wrestling with important questions about social media".

Trump wrote, also including (a typo perhaps?) the Twitter handle @AlfredENeuman99 in reference to South Bend's Mayor Pete Buttigieg, whom the president claimed looks like Alfred E. Neumen, a caricature from the United States humour magazine Mad.
