President Donald Trump did not invite Facebook or Twitter to an upcoming social media summit in Washington, D.C., addressing big tech’s alleged conservative bias, CNN reported Sunday.
Trump’s summit, scheduled for July 11, is mostly an opportunity for major conservative groups and pundits to vent their frustrations with Silicon Valley, the report notes, citing anonymous sources. Many conservatives and Republicans believe social media companies are suppressing their content.
The White House refused to provide a comment to the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Conservative groups Media Research Center and The Heritage Foundation are among those attending, according to representatives with both groups. Brent Bozell, the co-founder of Media Research Center, previously asked the Department of Justice to investigate Facebook, Google and Twitter.
