In a case of biting the vile hand that feeds him, Donald Trump is soliciting for and collecting grievances of social media users who feel that they’ve been banned or banished unfairly, countenancing the chief platforms for politic bias against the right.
To lodge one’s complaint, a detailed questionnaire is completed to include previous warnings, user policy, etc. This is not the first time we’ve seen Trump and compatriots curry individual favour as a way to undermine critics and not the first accusations flung at social media—who’ve been fairly agnostic about the monster they’ve elevated, however outside the norm and another way to weaponise and pander to entrenched beliefs. Of course it might also be a cynical ploy (also not without precedent) to identify with greater granularity potential voters for targeted campaign advertising.
