The Donald Trump Who’s Not Banned From Twitter Thinks Free Speech Is Dead… And Some Republicans Want Trump Sr. To Step Down.

There is a Donald Trump that’s still allowed to communicate on Twitter, and he’s picking up where his dad left off. Donald Trump Jr. blasted Twitter, on Twitter, not mincing words as he compares life in America when it comes to free speech being similar to a Communist country. “The world is laughing at America & Mao, Lenin, & Stalin are smiling,” Trump Jr. said in a tweet. “Big tech is able to censor the President? Free speech is dead & controlled by leftist overlords.”

That tweet followed one he sent on Friday, when he spoke of freedom of speech by saying it “no longer exists in America. It died with big tech and what’s left is only there for a chosen few.”

Do you sense a theme here?

Some of Trump’s supporters have claimed that being banned from platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram violate the President’s First Amendment rights. 

The tweet that seemed to almost make it easy for Trump’s detractors to say his words can be seen as fuel for his most radical supporters came in the middle of Wednesday’s chaos. Trump sent out a video on Twitter in which he once again referenced his claim that the election was stolen from him, and then told rioters to “Go home. We love you: you’re very special.”

President Trump has detractors in his own party too. Republican Senator Pat Toomey on Sunday called for Trump to resign, because of the riots Wednesday. 

As for impeachment, which House Democrats are already working on, Toomey told “Meet The Press” he doesn’t think there is time. “I think the best way for our country … is for the president to resign and go away as soon as possible. I acknowledge that may not be likely, but I think that would be best,” the Pennsylvania lawmaker said.
