President Trump praised Right Side Broadcasting Network in an exclusive interview calling the platform a “voice opener” shortly after announcing his class action lawsuit in a bid to protect the First Amendment.
Trump made the remarks during an interview with RSBN’s Brian Glenn on Wednesday saying the network has done fantastic work allowing “people to hear what is being said.”
The president told RSBN his recent lawsuits are focused on securing “total fairness,” adding that the desire to preserve freedom of speech, one of our founding principles, should be bipartisan in nature.
“It really isn’t a Republican thing or a Democrat thing… because one of the lawyers, as you heard today, explained that this could flip very easily,” he elaborated.
Addressing the decline of cable news viewership, Trump pointed out that some major networks have suffered a massive blow in recent months based on how they chose to cover his administration.
He also highlighted the double standard Big Tech companies practice on their platforms, explaining how they unfairly target conservative voices on the web while remaining strong allies with those who align with the Democrat Party.
Trump’s remarks came just moments after he announced he is filing suit against Facebook, Twitter, and Google since they banned him from using their platforms.
“We are demanding an end to the shadow banning, a stop to the silencing, and a stop to the blacklisting, banishing, and canceling that you know so well. Our case will prove this censorship is unlawful, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s completely un-American,” the president said during a press conference in New Jersey on Wednesday.
Trump emphasized the importance of these lawsuits in terms of preserving democracy and the right to free speech for Americans across the country.
Months ago, Trump was permanently banned from Twitter, and indefinitely barred from Facebook and Instagram over what many critics claim is fueled by anti-conservative bias within Big Tech. Thousands of his supporters have been banned or censored alike.
Over the weekend, even RSBN was suspended from YouTube just hours before President Trump took the stage in Sarasota for his campaign-style rally.
Trump praised RSBN during his interview with Glenn for the network’s incredible work and ratings on Saturday despite the minor setback.
“I heard incredible ratings on Saturday night with the speech in Florida,” the president continued. “I want to thank you. Great job.”
The 45th president concluded by encouraging patriots across the country to get involved and touting the thousands who have pledged their support since the announcement.
