Trump To Sign Executive Order Re: Social Media Says His Press Sec’y

This is interesting. Obviously Donald Trump wants to make it look like he’s in charge of social media, specifically Twitter, and not just a user on Twitter’s platform, which is owned and controlled by Jack Dorsey.

Let’s see what this looks like. When you go on a social media platform, you acknowledge that you understand some basic rules and conditions and will adhere to them. That’s how you get an account. That’s how Trump got his. So let’s see him dictate to Twitter how they’re going to run their own show.

Remember this, from back in 2019? Trump “decreed” that American companies wouldn’t do business with China?

“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.”

The proclamation, which the president does not have the power to enforce, might have been expected to unleash a wave of panic and terror among America’s mostly capitalist citizenry – such state-mandated orders are, after all, the stuff of planned-economy communist countries.

But instead, America’s Twitter-sphere resorted mainly to mocking Trump and his rhetorical flourishes. Soon “I hereby order” was taking on a life of its own: from top politicians down to the man-in-the-street Twitter inhabitant.

Same psychosis, different day. One thing is certain, he’s not getting any better.
