President Trump said Tuesday that Twitter does not treat him well “as a Republican,” claiming it’s being “discriminatory” and playing “political games.”

” ‘The best thing ever to happen to Twitter is Donald Trump.’ [Maria Bartiromo] So true, but they don’t treat me well as a Republican. Very discriminatory, hard for people to sign on. Constantly taking people off list. Big complaints from many people,” he tweeted, quoting Maria Bartiromo from Fox News Business.

“Different names-over 100 M But should be much higher than that if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games. No wonder Congress wants to get involved - and they should. Must be more, and fairer, companies to get out the WORD,” he continued.

This is not the first time Mr. Trump has slammed the social media network. In December, he said Twitter, Facebook and Google were biased toward Democrats.

“Facebook, Twitter and Google are so biased toward the Dems it is ridiculous! Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join [Donald Trump]. They have removed many names & greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING,” he tweeted.
