President Trump is hosting a social media-focused summit at the White House on Thursday afternoon, which is expected to examine bias at some of the country's biggest technology companies.
"Will be a big and exciting day at the White House for Social Media!" the president tweeted Thursday. He has suggested the companies may be acting illegally and should be sued by US regulators.
In March, Trump tweeted that "Facebook, Google and Twitter, not to mention the Corrupt Media, are sooo on the side of the Radical Left Democrats".
A White House official confirmed Wednesday that Ben Garrison, a cartoonist who drew a 2017 cartoon attacking then national security adviser H.R. McMaster that the Anti-Defamation League labelled "blatantly anti-Semitic", had been disinvited. All three companies have denied political bias.
Representatives for Facebook, Google and Twitter declined to comment specifically on Thursday's meeting.
"Internet companies depend upon their users' trust from across the political spectrum to grow and succeed". "We are constantly working to improve our systems and will continue to be transparent in our efforts".
The outburst came as Trump prepared for a conference that offers him a chance to play to his conservative base in the lead-up to the 2020 election. The visible toxic algae blooms and green slime plaguing Lake Erie and other waterways in recent years are visual evidence that the Trump administration's anti-environmental policies are moving the Midwest backwards not forwards. "Where everybody can have free and open speech". The order cheered those who said universities were attempting to silence some conservative students and speakers.
Trump was dealt a setback Tuesday in his ongoing legal battle against Twitter. He asserted that "even Social Media would be driven out of business" if he loses in 2020.
Social media was a key component of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Trump has been actively using it throughout his presidency.

The ACE rule replaces the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan, a signature climate change measure that would have forced utilities to shut down coal plants.
Republican lawmakers in Congress have also held hearings over the past year in which they have questioned social media executives about their company practices.
"There has never been a president who has actively pursued an agenda so hostile to the environment and public health at the behest of polluters than Mr Trump", he said. "And I always say I want crystal clean water and air", Trump said last month in Ireland, adding, "We're setting records, environmentally".
