“We’re demanding an end to the shadow-banning, a stop to the silencing and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing and cancelling that you know so well,” Trump said at a news conference in Bedminster, New Jersey. He went on to say the class action suits are joined by “thousands” of other people whose social media accounts have been shut down, not related only to the January 6 incident.
