President Suggests Guidelines for Social Platforms

Voices concern about censorship on social media.

On Wednesday, President Trump announced that he was considering new regulations, or even shut down orders, for social media companies that were attempting to “silence conservative voices.” Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also stated to reporters that the president was looking into an executive order relating to social media companies, though any such regulation would likely need to come through Congress. 

This action comes after Twitter added a link to one of President Trump’s tweets over the Memorial Day weekend about the dangers of Mail-in voting. The tweet said that mail-in voting “would be a free for all on cheating, forgery and the theft of Ballots.” The link under the tweet said, “get the facts about mail-in ballots” that linked to mainstream media articles to “fact-check” the president’s claim. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to lead the president in the best way to promote free speech in the U.S.
  • For Press Secretary McEnery to be given wisdom on how best to communicate White House actions to the press. 
  • That the Federal Communications Commission would use its authority appropriately to address possible censorship.
