(NewsReady.com) – The attacks by social media giants on President Donald Trump continued this week. Surprisingly, it wasn’t Twitter this time. Instead, the video-streaming platform Twitch has decided to jump on the censorship train.
On June 29, Twitch announced it was suspending Trump’s channel for what they’ve deemed “hateful content.” A spokesperson for the site said the decision to suspend the president’s account was “for comments made on stream.”
The ban is reportedly related to a video of his 2015 remarks about Mexican immigrants who come to the US and sexually assault women. It also involves a story about a criminal breaking into a house.
Surprise, surprise: Trump shares video as of his Mexican ‘rapists’ remarks, and video of Tulsa rally in which he told a fictional story of a "tough hombre" breaking in to a young woman's home, earns himself a Twitch ban. https://t.co/MsMCgLf88w

This is all but the latest instance of big tech going after the president. Earlier this month, SnapChat announced it was removing the president from its “Discover” feature. Both Twitter and Facebook have also attacked Trump.
To have powerful social media companies attacking the commander-in-chief during an election year is extremely disturbing. Will this campaign being waged against him influence the election? That’s a question nobody knows the answer to.
