Trump sues  Twitter, Google and Facebook over censorship

It has been reported that former US President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against tech giants Google, Twitter and Facebook, claiming that he is the victim of censorship.

According to BBC, the class action lawsuit also targets the three companies' CEOs.

The politician was suspended from his social accounts in January, this year, over public safety concerns in the wake of the Capitol riots, led by his supporters.

Yesterday, Mr Trump described the lawsuit as "a very beautiful development for our freedom of speech."

In a news conference from his golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, Mr Trump railed against social media companies and Democrats, who he accused of espousing misinformation, BBC added.

"We are demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and cancelling that you know so well," he was quoted by the World’s broadcaster.

The suit prays for a court order to end alleged censorship.

 Mr Trump added that if they managed to ban the President: "they can do it to anyone".

However, none of the accused tech companies have yet responded to the lawsuit, which was filed to a federal court in Florida.

At a press conference, Mr Trump was joined at the announcement by former Trump officials who have since created the not-for-profit America First Policy Institute.
