Trump criticism of social media censorship rings hollow after retweeting conspiracy site
The president of the United States shared Infowars and a video from unverified account 'Deep State Exposed'
President of the United States Donald Trump retweeted a website responsible for circulating conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook shooting.
Yesterday Trump raged about censorship on social media, following big tech companies banning several far-right figures from their platforms.
The president said that "Conservative thinkers" were being unjustly banned yesterday and today retweeted several Twitter users with similar views, including Infowars contributor Paul Joseph Watson and far-right personality Lauren Southern.
Southern, who the president retweeted, was questioned at the UK's border under the Terrorism Act and permanently banned from entering the country. She authored a book titled 'Barbarians: How Baby Boomers, Immigrants, and Muslims Screwed My Generation.'
Trump also shared a video from unverified account Deep State Exposed and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.
Facebook banned Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson this week, as well as the EDL and BNP earlier this month.
