The famous clash between Donald Trump and Joe Biden has come the end, but the former president did not seem to let thing go easy. Trump came back and this time, the target was the Section 230.

 Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act allows the Internet platforms to remove dangerous and harmful content from the flow of the Internet and help the users have a friendly environment for surfing the net. Though the purpose of this section is friendly, Trump for some reasons accused the the Section 230 and said that this regulation is only beneficial for the big tech companies.

In his statement on Twitter, the former president wrote.

Section 230, which is a liability shielding gift from the U.S. to “Big Tech” (the only companies in America that have it – corporate welfare!), is a serious threat to our National Security & Election Integrity. Our Country can never be safe & secure if we allow it to stand…..

…..Therefore, if the very dangerous & unfair Section 230 is not completely terminated as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), I will be forced to unequivocally VETO the Bill when sent to the very beautiful Resolute desk. Take back America NOW. Thank you!

The former president also said that he would ask the NDAA a law bill, otherwise, he would block the privilege of the National Defense Authorization Act. Besides Trump, some other government workers supported Trump’s opposition against the Section 230. The list included Senator Josh Hawley who is an ally with Donald Trump.

“The NDAA does NOT contain any reform to Section 230 but DOES contain Elizabeth Warren’s social engineering amendment to unilaterally rename bases & war memorials w/ no public input or process,” Hawley tweeted. “I cannot support it.”

In his tweet, Trump implied that because of the Section 230, some companies censored him strictly and interfered his influence as a president on the social media site. Perhaps Trump is right. But why Twitter keeps letting Trump publish his tweet on their platform if they want to censor the former president.

Sen. Roy Wyden confessed that what Trump did against the Section 230 was an unbelievable action.

“It is pathetic that Trump refuses to help unemployed workers, while he spends his time tweeting unhinged election conspiracies and demanding Congress repeal the foundation of free speech online,” Wyden said.

No one knows whether a law bill can be proceeded or not, but so far, what Trump did against the NDDA is so humorous. The former president accused the legal regulation for its unfairness while they continue to give Trump the approval of publishing his speech on the social media platform.
