“End Section 230 now, before it is too late. So bad for our Country. Show courage, and do what’s right!!!” president tells Congress
POTUS vetoed the 2021 National Defence Authorisation Act on Wednesday, describing the bill as a document that “would put the interests of the Washington, DC, establishment over those of the American people”.
US President Donald Trump has again lashed out at the 2021 National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA), vowing that he will not “stand by and watch this travesty of a bill happen without reigning in Big Tech”, an apparent nod to Amazon, Apple, Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.
“End Section 230 now, before it is too late. So bad for our Country. Show courage, and do what’s right!!!”, the president tweeted on Saturday.
Section 230 is part of the nation’s internet legislation known as the Communications Decency Act (CDA) of 1996, which protects internet companies from liability for the content they host. Trump earlier claimed that Section 230 “facilitates the spread of foreign disinformation online”.
