President Donald Trump has been heavily criticizing social media giants Facebook, Google and Twitter this week for unfair bias against social and political conservatives.
‘I’d love to do it’
Donald Trump Jr. also announced today that he will lend his support to a new social media platform that will be fair to conservatives.
The new social media platform is being launched to give conservatives a full opportunity to share their pro-American, Pro-Constitution, Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-God values with the world. The site is PlanetUs.com, and is a conservative-friendly social media platform.
PlanetUS administrators say that the new conservative-friendly social media website is ready to use, and is expected to launch in mid September.
“Everyone is welcome to get their accounts set up early, and to begin posting and communicating, even before the day of the official launch. Many leading conservatives have already reserved their names and organizational names.” – PlanetUS.com
When asked about it Donald Trump Jr. said today that he would back such a “conservative, Facebook-like social network” created to compete with Facebook and other social media platforms. He also demonstrated interest in leveraging his enormous social media presence in order to publicize the solution to the liberal bias from the left-leaning silicon valley social media companies.

“I’d love to do it,” Trump Jr. said. “I’d help promote the platform and be all over that.”
Trump Jr. has over 3 million followers on Twitter, and over 1.3 million followers on Instagram.
An adviser to President Trump has suggested that the president will use his Twitter presence to help publicize such a conservative social media forum.
‘They have it RIGGED, for me & others’
Conservatives and allies of the president have decried the left-wing bias in many of the companies controlling the biggest and most influential social media and online companies. Trump himself has been criticizing Twitter and Google by pointing to instances of what many critics see as evidence of the liberal agenda in online companies.
The president threatened on Tuesday that the situation would soon be “addressed.”
“Google & others are suppressing voices of Conservatives and hiding information and news that is good,” Trump tweeted. “They are controlling what we can & cannot see. This is a very serious situation…”
President Trump says Facebook is biased against “large portions of the population:
“I don’t think [this issue] is going away,” said Donald Trump Jr. of the bias in social media platforms, “because I don’t think it’s changing.”
