Trump signs executive order on social media following spat with Twitter

Steve DelBianco, president of NetChoice, a D.C.-based trade association that lobbies Congress on behalf of the technology industry, said while Trump’s intent is to protect freedom of expression on the internet, he’s going about it the wrong way.

“It’s the wrong vehicle in the right direction,” DelBianco said.

“Social media has been a godsend for average people, average Canadians, who want to share their news and views without a big traditional-media filter.

For that reason, the limited liability that’s in the USMCA makes sense for Canada, no matter what President Trump may do here in the United States to work over social-media platforms that he feels are not treating him fairly.”
