Donald Trump lays bare plans if ex-POTUS makes a return to the White House | US | News

Donald Trump has laid out a five point plan to tackle censorship should he win the 2024 US Presidential election. Mr Trump pledged that he would prevent “lawful speech” from being labelled misinformation or disinformation by the US government.

The New York real estate mogul used his Truth Social platform on Thursday afternoon to outline his proposals.

Rallying against the “left-wing censorship regime”, the billionaire raged against efforts to “suppress vital information on everything from elections to public health.”

He said: “The censorship cartel must be dismantled and destroyed, and it must happen immediately.”

The former Apprentice star said that he would use an executive order to stop what he saw as collusion between the Federal government and individuals seeking to stifle lawful speech.

He said: “I will then ban federal money from being used to label domestic speech as mis- or disinformation.”

The Art of the Deal author said that he would ensure that the Department of Justice investigated those “involved in the new online censorship regime.”

A demand that guilty parties should be prosecuted for their crimes was also put forward.

He said: “I am urging House Republicans to immediately send preservation letters—and we have to do this right now—to the Biden administration, the Biden campaign and every Silicon Valley tech giant, ordering them not to destroy evidence of censorship.”

Mr Trump added that if he wins in 2024 he will ask Congress to end the section 230 provision that protects social media platforms from being sued due to users content.

The former President said he would withhold funds from nonprofits and academic programs if they support censorship.

He said; “If any US university is discovered to have engaged in censorship activities, or election interference in the past, such as flagging social media content for removal of blacklisting, those universities should lose federal research dollars and federal student loan support for a period of five years, and maybe more.”

Mr Trump also vowed to introduce a digital Bill of Rights, “which would include a right to digital due process.”

Under these proposals the government would need to obtain a court order before any virtual content could be removed.

He also argued that platforms should notify users who have had their accounts “shadow banned” or otherwise restricted or removed.

Under Mr Trump’s plans US adults could also “opt out of content moderation and curation entirely.”
