President Donald Trump has asked why the ‘radical left wing media’ is still allowed on Facebook and Twitter after a string of social media bans on controversial, mostly right-wing, figures sparked uproar.

‘When will the Radical Left Wing Media apologize to me for knowingly getting the Russia Collusion Delusion story so wrong? The real story is about to happen!’ Trump tweeted on Saturday morning, apparently referring to revelations of FBI surveillance on his campaign.

‘Why is @nytimes, @washingtonpost, @CNN, @MSNBC allowed to be on Twitter & Facebook. Much of what they do is FAKE NEWS!’ he continued.

It followed a string of retweets of criticism aimed at Facebook for its recent ban of several controversial figures, which the company labeled ‘dangerous individuals’.

Facebook’s ban on Thursday included right-wing personalities Paul Joseph Watson, Paul Nehlen, Milo Yiannopoulos and Laura Loomer, as well as radio host Alex Jones and his website, Infowars, which often posts conspiracy theories.

Facebook also banned Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, an ally of left-wing Democrats.

Trump retweeted former InfoWars editor-at-large Watson, who wrote: ‘The support for me has been incredible. This could actually lead to some genuine change. Keep up the pressure. Don’t let it rest.’

Trump’s retweets included a range of commentary blasting Facebook’s ban as politically-motivated censorship.

‘When did we decide, as Americans, that it’s ok fo govt & 3d parties to censor/ curate our info? That we cannot be trusted with unfiltered info?’ read one tweet by Sharyl Attkisson, host of the Sinclair Broadcasting television show Full Measure News.

‘Lmao at establishment conservatives who think they won’t be labeled the new ‘dangerous’ / ‘extremist’ voices when those to the right of them are all banned. Good luck with that one guys,’ wrote author and filmmaker Lauren Southern.
