President Biden has removed an executive order from Trump that was meant to curb online censorship and discrimination.
President Biden recently revoked former President Trump’s executive order targeting online censorship.
Trump’s order wanted companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google and others to be held responsible for content posted to their platforms. In the order, Trump wrote that “an internet provider [should] be exposed to liability like any traditional editor and publisher that is not an online provider.”
The order specifically addressed Section 230 of the U.S. Code, which allows platforms to not be held liable for actions taken to restrict certain types of “objectionable” material. Section 230 also applies to these materials whether or not they are constitutionally protected.

Trump also wrote in the executive order: “Section 230 was not intended to allow a handful of companies to grow into titans controlling vital avenues for our national discourse under the guise of promoting open forums for debate.”
Biden has already removed many of the Trump administration’s policies, and now, he has decided to remove an order aimed at preserving free speech and getting rid of partisan discrimination in online media. Biden and his anti-Trump, progressive agenda must be stopped. Otherwise, we will lose many of the freedoms that make America great.
