The way the political attacks on Donald Trump are ramping up, you’d think there’s an election in a month. It appears this will be a hot summer when it comes to political battles. Here’s the latest example.
“Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), a critic of Facebook and other tech giants, on Thursday called Donald Trump ‘a danger to democracy’ and applauded a decision by Facebook’s Oversight Board to uphold the company’s ban on the former president,” according to The Hill.
“Warren urged Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to keep the ban in place when Facebook revisits the question of allowing Trump back on its social media platform in another six months.
“‘I am much happier with Donald Trump off the air, off Facebook. I don’t like having to get up every morning and go through what he’s done. I think he poses a lot of risk,’ she said in an interview with The Washington Post Live.
“Asked if Trump should now be treated as an ‘ordinary American’ by social media companies now that he’s out of office, Warren said: ‘He poses much more risk than an ordinary American.’
“‘He spreads lies,’ she said, referring to Trump’s claims that President Biden won the 2020 election because of widespread fraud. [emphasis added]
“‘Indeed, he is now forcing, evidently, everybody else in the Republican Party to agree to say the lie out loud. He spreads misinformation. He is truly a danger to our democracy,’ she added.” [emphasis added]
