US President Trump loves to use Twitter to post, but his two most recent tweets were officially marked as “fact check” by Twitter for misleading or misrepresentation. In response to this, Trump criticized Twitter for infringing on freedom of expression earlier, and later threatened to supervise social media companies and even shut them down.

Trump said in a tweet, “Republicans are starting to feel that social media is suppressing the voice of conservatives.” “If the situation does not improve, we will forcefully control or shut down the platform.” He threatened: “There will be A major action. “A White House spokesman said that Trump is about to sign an executive order on social media, but did not disclose details.

White House spokesman Kayleigh McEnany told reporters on the US Presidential Air Force One (Air Force One) that flew to Washington from Florida on the 27th that Trump will sign a An executive order on social media, but did not disclose other details of the executive order.

Twitter and other social media companies did not immediately respond to Trump’s threat.
