I said weeks ago Trump should move on these Big Tech companies the same way Obama and the Democrats moved against coal
When President Trump said Saturday morning that his administration was going to fight back against Big Tech’s discriminatory policies, he had already taken the first step.
Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson is accusing tech behemoth Facebook of engaging in housing discrimination, according to a complaint filed on Friday.
In it, HUD says the social media giant allows landlords and home sellers access to advertising tools that limit which prospective buyers or tenants can view certain online ads based on race, religion, sex, disability and other characteristics.
“The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination including those who might limit or deny housing options with a click of a mouse,” Anna María Farías, HUD’s assistant secretary for fair housing and equal opportunity said in a statement.
“When Facebook uses the vast amount of personal data it collects to help advertisers to discriminate, it’s the same as slamming the door in someone’s face,” she said.
I said weeks ago Trump should move on these Big Tech companies the same way Obama and the Democrats moved against coal.
It appears that’s exactly what he’s doing.
If Big Tech won’t respect our First Amendment, then to paraphrase Hillary Clinton, “we need to put a lot of Big Tech companies out of business.”
