(The Sun) – President Donald Trump has threatened to ‘close down’ social media outlets he claims are “silencing conservative voices.” Later in the day, the president, locked in a growing feud with the social media giant Twitter, teased: “Big action to follow!”

In a pair of morning tweets, Trump said: “Republicans feel that Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices. We will strongly regulate, or close them down before we can ever allow this to happen.”

“We saw what they attempted to do, and failed, in 2016. We can’t let a more sophisticated version of that happen again.” “Just like we can’t let large scale Mail-In Ballots take root in our Country. It would be a free for all on cheating, forgery and the theft of Ballots.”

“Whoever cheated the most would win. Likewise, Social Media. Clean up your act, NOW!!!!” Later, he added: “Twitter has now shown that everything we have been saying about them (and their compatriots) is correct. Big action to follow!” READ MORE
