Former President Donald Trump announced class action lawsuits Wednesday against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, the leaders of three Big Tech companies that banned him from their platforms after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol building.

Speaking at a news conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Wednesday morning, Trump said he would be the lead plaintiff in the class action suit filed in partnership with the America First Policy Institute, a new nonprofit think-tank that advocates for Trump’s policies. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

“I stand before you this morning to announce a very important and very beautiful, I think, development for our freedom and our freedom of speech … today, in conjunction with the America First Policy Institute, I’m filing as the lead class action representative a major class action lawsuit against the Big Tech giants including Facebook, Google and Twitter, as well as their CEOs,” Trump said.

The lawsuit seeks a court order to immediately halt social media platforms “illegal, shameful, censorship of the American people.” The former president is demanding an end to shadow-banning, blacklisting, and canceling of conservatives by Big Tech companies. . . .

[After January 6th], . . .Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube — which is owned by Google — each announced that Trump would no longer be able to use their platforms. The tech companies claimed that Trump’s repeated insistence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and that President Joe Biden’s victory was illegitimate incited the violence at the Capitol.

Twitter permanently banned Trump, citing the “risk of further incitement of violence” by his account, while Facebook indefinitely deplatformed the sitting president. After Facebook’s Oversight Board criticized the company for imposing an arbitrary punishment on Trump, the company clarified that Trump will remain deplatformed through Jan. 7, 2023, at least. Trump’s YouTube channel remains indefinitely suspended until there is no longer a “risk of incitement to violence.”

“There is no better evidence that Big Tech is out of control than the fact that they banned the sitting president of the United States earlier this year,” Trump told the gathered reporters. “If they can do it to me, they can do it to anyone.”

First reported by Axios, Trump’s lawsuit will also seek the immediate restoration of his social media accounts and “punitive damages” on the Big Tech giants.

The lawsuits also target the liability protections Big Tech companies enjoy under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

“While the social media companies are officially private entities, in recent years they have ceased to be private with the enactment and their historical use of Section 230, which profoundly protects them from liability,” Trump said. “It is in effect a massive government subsidy, these companies have been co-opted, coerced and weaponized by government actors to become the enforcers of illegal, unconstitutional censorship.”

The former president accused social media companies of coordinating with federal public health officials during the pandemic to censor certain speech. Trump pointed to policies that banned users for sharing “misinformation” about COVID-19, such as opinions that raised questions about the origins of the virus and whether it was leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Big Tech companies became “the de-facto censorship arm of the U.S. government,” Trump said.

Good luck, President Trump,
All you have against you is the entire main stream “news” media with Hollywood, the U.S. public school system from pre-school to PhD, all the big-tech billionaires, and most of the government of the country. Only a little bunch of us deplorable, right-wing radicals still support you.
Lord have mercy.

I pray that President Donald Trump wins “bigly!!” He has been through so much, for this country. I, for one, appreciate all he has done for America!! I ask the Lord to give him total victory with every judge, and the court system, and for supernatural wisdom and open doors for him and his attorneys. I pray that Section 230 does not protect Big tech from the evil and deception they have contrived and perpetrated against President Trump! Let your truth and President Trump, prevail, Lord, in Jesus name!

As long as this is allowed to proceed and is not thrown out by the hearing judge as predicted by many, this will be the beginning of accountability for the Tech industry that has so visibly colluded with the Democrat Party. I pray in agreement with our brothers and sisters in Christ that Divine Justice WILL prevail in our nation!

ABBA Father we desperately need Your Divine Intervention NOW! Those that have been traitors to our Constitution and the best interests of our nation, need to be fully exposed and prosecuted to the full extent of the Law. Only You can turn our nation around; only You can convict of sin, righteousness, and judgment. We ask that whistleblowers will come forward and provide compelling evidence of the crimes committed by the ‘Tech Giants’, AND by those who have committed MASSIVE Voter Fraud in the Federal, state, and local election process. We’re crying out to You for relief from all this tyranny, and also that a new Great Awakening will immediately follow with souls saved beyond measure… In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

This is the best news EVER! I pray that President Trump – the BEST President the USA has had in many years – will be victorious in this lawsuit, and that Christian voices that have been silenced by the Cancel Culture will ring out together again! Praise God!

Brilliant as usual, our President Trump’s timing is impeccable. He, who is loved by our God and the majority of Americans and who was intended by the Father to have 2 terms (of grace for us to bring light and repentance to this nation and the nations) has taken the hard stand. I pray all Christians will join OFFENSIVE intercessory prayer groups and will stand firm and pray over him in one accord. He is taking the lawsuit hit not just for himself, but for all of us who have been censored and suffered the persecution. If not us, who then, to draw the line in the sand for our children and grandchildren? We have a TINY window, maybe, to unify across party lines as the true Church Remnant and repent of our sins and our compromise. Get involved in the local elections to support the honorable, righteous leaders who take the courage to run for office in the hardest of times. Help them get elected! The Lord has said He will judge this nation for the
vulgar, horrendous apathy and sin. We may be able to have an impact as to how much as we submit to His call just as He called to Israel.

Dear Heavenly Father, please bless and protect President Trump as he continues to fight the deception that was carried out against the people of this nation. Bless his efforts, and guide him and those who work for him to do Your will. Let the wicked be exposed and face justice. In Jesus precious name I pray, Dear Lord, Amen.

The article describes the America First Policy Institute as a think tank for Trump’s policies. That is the best oxymoron I have heard this year. Trump has no policies beyond narcism so there is nothing to think about. He will lose this lawsuit so what is the point? Maybe just another fundraiser for this grifter.

    Know the truth, and the truth shall set you free, Gary!
    The truth is that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

You Father have already won the battle and we TRUST IN YOU and You alone!!!! Hallelujah!!! In Yeshua’s mighty name we ask and pray. Amen!!!

A big and sincere Thank you to Donald Trump. He needed to do this. I hope that this puts these Big Techs in their place, where they belong! I hope Trump wins big in these lawsuits, I pray that justice would be served. In Jesus name.

Dear Lord, I pray for Godly wisdom for the leaders in America. And I am thankful for Mr. Trump, Lord please may Your hand continue to be upon him and protect him and I pray that You fill him with Your wisdom. I pray that the Holy Spirit would guide all Gov’t officials in all kinds of decisions they make. In Jesus name, amen.

In this article the author states that “a mob of Trump supporters gathered at the U.S. Capitol and got into violent altercations with police officers”. This has been so widely reported as fact that even the most ardent Trump supporters are believing it. The people who got into violent altercations with police were not Trump supporters. They were people POSING as Trump supporters. It was carefully planned and orchestrated by anti-Trump forces. It’s sad that this great lie continues to be given credence.

July 8, 2021

Good for you, Mr. President! I hope that your lawsuit nails these clowns to the wall, where they all belong. When our Constitutional rights are infringed upon, class action lawsuits need to happen. How sad that our nation has degenerated into such a mess. Lord, please, by your mercy, grant favor to everyone involved in this lawsuit. Please pour out Your Holy Spirit upon the justices who will be hearing this case, and give them ears to hear. In Jesus’ name.

July 8, 2021

Thank You Lord!!
I pray that You give President Donald J Trump the anointing of Jehu (uncompromised warrior for God’s justice) to defeat the spirit of Jezebel (controlling the American people with fear and intimidation) through the big tech companies. Not only do I pray for victory for President Trump, I pray for victory for all You are doing in our country! Thank You for raising up many warriors in these end times. May many be saved through Truth being released. Please guide President Trump and his legal team and bless them with Your presence to keep them strengthened. I pray You provide all their needs according to Your generous riches through Christ Jesus. Please continue to press on our hearts Your will so we will partner with Your plans on Earth. Come Lord Jesus!

It’s about time! Thanks to President Trump, he needed to do this! I pray for protection over him and his family, and for this lawsuit to be successful in Jesus’ name and with God’s help! Route out the enemy and throw him down!

This is something that has been necessary. In a class-action suit, anyone can join that has been damaged by the media. We all have been damaged from voter fraud to the pandemic. I believe most Americans don’t know that the media no longer has to fear the law when it lies. It’s time to show them. If this class action reaches out…join! It will not cost. I received an email that Trump is looking for donations to help…Help then. Pray that God provides the fruit of this operation

I am glad that President Donald J. Trump is not settling out of court with this issue. President Donald J. Trump had a great speech with the press on what is going to happen. One woman gave the site: http://www.takeonbigtech.com. Prophet Robin D. Bullock had an Eleventh Hour prophetic words on big tech. Robin D. Bullock named off four.

Lord God,

Your will be done. Please grant wisdom, discernment, humility and self control to those involved so that Your Name will not be defamed in the pursuit of liberty. May righteousness, justice and truth prevail! May the plans of the enemy be met with chaos and destruction. Lord Jesus, Maranatha, come quickly! In Your Name we pray!

Lord Jesus guide President Trump and his legal team giving them strategies, Your wisdom and discernment to win this fight against the corruption and censorship of social media. Turn the plans of the enemy into chaos and confusion. Give honest judges with integrity to judge any and all lawsuits Trump’s legal team pursues to provide freedom of speech back to America. Provide the finances for President Trump throughout this lawsuit through Americans and other sources. We thank You Jesus for no weapon formed against Your people will prosper and thank You Lord for the victory in advance. In the Mighty Name of Jesus- Amen ✝️🙏🏻🙌🏻🔥

It is time that someone challenged their abuse of power over any one who disagrees with their interpretation of free speech & rights guaranteed by the Constitution.
