Trump: Big tech interfering in election by censoring Post’s Hunter Biden exposé

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday accused tech giants Twitter and Facebook of interfering in the upcoming election following their unprecedented censorship of The Post’s reporting on Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.

During a Rose Garden town hall with Sinclair Broadcast Group taped Tuesday, the commander-in-chief was pressed on Twitter’s decision to block its users from sharing the articles and suspending The Post’s account for a week.

“Do you think that Twitter and Facebook are biased in this election?” Eric Bolling, the host of “America This Week,” asked Trump.

“One hundred percent,” Trump said, “and frankly that’s turning out to be as big a story as the corruption itself.

“They are trying to protect him because that’s the way it is with the Democrats. It’s a part of the Democratic Party, I guess. They’re trying to protect Biden from this corruption where they got caught and that’s turning out to be just as big a story,” the commander-in-chief said.

“Censorship?” Bolling asked.

“Of course, it’s at a level nobody thought possible,” Trump said.

“Election interference?” Bolling furthered.

“Yeah, 100 percent,” the president said.

The reporting included a tranche of emails indicating Hunter Biden used his then-Vice President father Joe Biden to land lucrative deals with shady overseas executives and boost his pay.

The Post also revealed an email to Hunter Biden from an adviser to the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma thanking him for the “opportunity” to meet his father.

Bolling asked Trump if he would continue his effort to repeal Section 230, a federal law that largely exempts online platforms from legal liability for material posted by their users.

“Nobody thought Section 230 was going to be devised for purposed like this and what they’re doing. Nobody has ever seen anything like this,” Trump said.
