from Sputnik News:
Earlier on Thursday, US President Donald Trump hailed the New York Post exposing what he described as “the massive corruption surrounding Sleepy Joe [Biden]” in an apparent reference to the Democratic presidential nominee.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has lambasted Twitter for locking her personal account over sharing a tweet about a New York Post story about Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s dealings with his son Hunter’s business associates in Ukraine.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, McEnany accused Twitter of only banning content that rides roughshod over Silicon Valley’s interests.

She also berated the social media giant for allowing the publication of articles that accused President Donald Trump of collaborating with Russia ahead of the 2016 presidential election despite the fact that the US special counsel’s probe revealed last year that there was no such collusion.
“Make no mistake, if they can ban the press secretary of the United States for President Trump, they can ban any American citizen and that is pathetic”, the White House press secretary pointed out.
McEnany stressed that she had been permanently banned on Twitter, which “essentially” had her “at gun point” and said that unless she deleted a news story reported by the New York Post, she “cannot gain access” to her account.
“This is censorship, this is not the American way, this is not how a freedom-loving democracy operates. We have to hold Twitter accountable, and Facebook too, it was banning the transmission of the story simply because ideologically, it hurts the side of the aisle that Silicon Valley prefers. It’s sad, it’s censorship. This is not America”, she underlined.
Trump Hails New York Post Exposing ‘Corrupt’ Biden
Her remarks came as Trump posted earlier on Thursday a series of tweets in which he specifically threatened to scrap Section 230, a protection law that exempts companies like Twitter and Facebook from liability for content posted by users on these social media platforms.
So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of “Smoking Gun” emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost. It is only the beginning for them. There is nothing worse than a corrupt politician. REPEAL SECTION 230!!! https://t.co/g1RJFpIVUZ
