President Donald Trump said Thursday during the White House social media summit that Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has a “very important” bill to stop censorship of conservatives on the Internet.

During the White House’s summit on social media, President Trump praised Sen. Hawley’s legislation, which would crack down on social media censorship.

Sen - Josh - Hawley - Media - Companies

Sen. Josh Hawley said that if social media companies wish to keep their Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act legal immunity, they should stop censoring conservative and alternative voices on the Internet.

Sen. Josh Hawley recently introduced the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, which would audit social media companies for bias, and if regulators found bias in either the big tech companies’ algorithm or content moderation process, those companies would lose their Section 230 immunity.

President - Trump - Senator - Legislation - Something

President Trump said the Senator is pushing “very important legislation because we have to do something about what’s happening.”

The Missouri conservative said that social media companies have a government granted special immunity through Section 230 which allows them to censor without significant legal recourse. Hawley said that if these companies want to keep their “special deal,” they need to stop censoring conservatives. Hawley explained:

Deal - Google - Facebook - Twitter - Deals

That’s why we need to step up now, and I think we need to say to them here’s the deal: Google, Facebook, Twitter, they’ve got these special deals from government, they’ve got a special giveaway from government, they’re treated unlike anybody else. If they want to keep their special deal here’s the bargain: they have to quit discriminating against conservatives.
