Donald Trump's class-action lawsuit against big tech giants Facebook, Twitter, and Google to “order an immediate halt to social media companies, illegal, shameful censorship of the American people" will be the first of its kind in history.

The lawsuit, which is in conjunction with the America First Policy Institute, which is founded by the Trump Administration alumnae Brooke Rollins and Linda McMahon, will demand tech giants end shadow banning.

“Our case will prove this censorship is unlawful, it’s unconstitutional, and it’s completely un-American,” Trump said.

“Our filing also seeks injunctive relief to allow prompt restitution… because it is destroying our country.”

'You just have to take a look at what happened in recent elections and add up the right numbers,' Trump said

“You just have to take a look at what happened in recent elections and add up the right numbers,” Trump said about big tech’s censorship in the 2020 election.

“Social media has given extraordinary power to a group of big tech giants that are working with government, the mainstream media, and a large segment of a political party, to silence and suppress the views of the American people.”

WATCH:

Trump also highlighted how Facebook censored information concerning the coronavirus.

Until recently, Facebook had the policy to eliminate all posts sharing evidence that the horrible virus emerged from China. They said, “It didn't emerge from the Chinese lab.” Remember, I said Wuhan, it was like a bomb went up. “It came from the Wuhan lab.”

“Of course, there are body bags outside the lab, nobody ever mentions that. I wonder why?” Trump questioned.

“It was finally revealed that this was most likely the truth, that it came from the lab.”

But it is likely big tech will use Section 230 for their defense, and that had “Florida passed a law regulating tech platforms as common carriers in the Sunshine State, then Trump as a Florida resident would be on a much stronger legal footing against the tech giants.”

They are also likely to use section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to argue they can censor anyone for any reason and at any time, which courts have accepted in the past.

During Trump's final months in office, then-FCC chairman Ajit Pai killed his efforts to executive rulemaking change to Section 230

The news comes after Florida's Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, vowed to go to war with Big Tech after a Democrat federal judge blocked his anti-censorship law that seeks to protect free speech online.

Last week, U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle, who was appointed by former President Bill Clinton, blocked a Florida law that aims to protect free speech online and prevent “a social media platform from willfully de-platforming a candidate.”
