Report: Trump Paid Twitter To Keep Him On Platform
Recent reports released by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigative team have uncovered evidence that Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, paid Twitter to allow the president to remain on the social media platform. While Trump had been reported to Twitter management time and time again for harassment and bigotry, Cohen paid the social media giant so they would “turn a blind eye” to the tweets.
During the election, experts found Trump’s tweets significantly boosted his favorability among voters. While White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders declined to comment on recent revelations, son Donald Trump Jr. was enthusiastic to respond. Trump Jr. told us, “Listen, my father is not guilty of treason. So the investigation found a little small loan being paid to Twitter for my father to notify his followers about fake news? Isn’t that better than the liberal media having control over the internet? Who cares if my father tweets racial remarks? The economy has not been any better in the entirety of this country’s history. So some politically incorrect tweets are the price of this country’s success? Listen, sue me you snowflakes!”
While the president’s son saw no fault in these payments, many Twitter users found this to be disturbing, as it has been affecting the “Terms and Conditions” made available by Twitter. Twitter claimed their Terms and Conditions do not cover bigotry, but their recent advertising suggests otherwise. In a new commercial, Twitter stated “Tweet something racist at your Black friend. Tell your Gay friends you wouldn’t bake them a cake. Be open about your love of Ben Shapiro and Tomi Lahren. We’re the new safe zone for conservatives. Twitter.”
While Twitter’s allegiance to Trump has upset many users, most have not abandoned the social media platform yet. Twitter users are not afraid to use the platform to speak out about their disdain for the current collusion. Users are still not afraid to Tweet “#resist” at President Trump and the Twitter customer support page.
