President Donald Trump is demanding the notorious Section 230 be repealed.
The law gives broad immunity to tech companies like Facebook and Twitter on the grounds they are an open platform. However, some argue that censorship along political lines should prevent the companies from receiving such protections.
Trump made it clear that he wants it to end.
“For purposes of National Security, Section 230 must be immediately terminated!!!” tweeted Trump.
