President Trump says he is ‘closely monitoring’ Facebook, Instagram and Twitter after the social media giants removed a number of conservative figures from their platforms.

Right-wing personalities Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Laura Loomer were banned from Facebook this week, as the site attempts to combat criticism that it spreads misinformation and hateful content.

However, in a flurry of Tweets on Friday, the Commander-in-chief seemed to imply that the purge was merely an attack on right-wing voices and that shutting off their access to social media may be a violation of first amendment rights.

‘I am continuing to monitor the censorship of AMERICAN CITIZENS on social media platforms. This is the United States of America — and we have what’s known as FREEDOM OF SPEECH!’ Trump wrote in one post.

He added: ‘We are monitoring and watching, closely!!’
