Donald Trump accuses Google, Twitter and Facebook of treating Republicans ‘unfairly’

The US President said social media giants and search engines are treating conservatives and Republicans "unfairly".

But in an apparent U-turn from yesterday, Trump said regulating the firms was not the answer and instead called for “fairness”.

Speaking to reporters at the White House today, he said: “I think that Google and Facebook and Twitter ... treat conservatives and Republicans very unfairly.

"I think it's a very serious problem because they're really trying to silence a very large part of this country, and those people don't want to be silenced.

“It's not right. It's not fair. It may not be legal, but we'll see. We just want fairness."
