President Donald Trump has taken a lot of flack for asserting that election interference is a real possibility in the coming 2020 presidential election.
But now, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is affirming Trump’s position.
In a statement to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Gaetz explained, “Big tech will steal this election from Donald Trump and the American people.”
“Big Tech buys off Congress, so as to maintain special privileges that local newspapers and television stations don’t enjoy. That’s why the President’s executive order today is one very important next step because if we just wait around, Big Tech will steal this election from Donald Trump and the American people. In 2016, we won three Rust Belt states by a point each. And that was win nobody thought Donald Trump could win. In 2020, we’ve lost the element of surprise. And so, we have to be as aggressive as they are. That means bills like Senator [Josh] Hawley and I have filed to change Section 230 as to out these entities as publishers and not the unbiased platforms they [say they] are. It means an executive order like the President has issued,” Gaetz said.
