President Donald Trump warned Tuesday that the efforts by Big Tech companies to deplatform him and his supporters was a “big mistake” that would only anger more Americans.
“I think that big tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country, and I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them,” Trump said.
The president spoke to reporters prior to leaving Joint Base Andrews aboard Air Force One to visit the wall constructed on the Southern Border in Alamo, Texas.
Trump said that he had warned about the massive power and influence wielded by Big Tech throughout his presidency, adding that the decision they were making would reverberate around the world.
“They’re dividing, and divisive, and they’re showing something that I’ve been predicting for a long time,” he said. “People didn’t act on it, but I think big tech has made a terrible mistake, and very very bad for our country and it’s leading to others doing the same thing.”
He specifically voiced his concern about what Silicon Vally companies had done to him and his supporters in days following the storming of Capitol Hill last week. “It causes a lot of problems and a lot of danger. Big mistake,” he said. “They should not be doing it.”
