President Trump on Wednesday pulled punches in his fight against Big Tech, shying away from naming Twitter, Google and Facebook directly as he vaguely denounced "censorship" four minutes into a video posted Wednesday night.
After condemning the violence by his supporters on Capitol Hill last week, he pivoted to addressing the "unprecedented assault on free speech we have seen in recent days," seemingly a reference to his suspensions from every major social media platform.
"The efforts to censor, cancel and blacklist our fellow citizens are wrong and they are dangerous," Trump said. "What is needed now is for us to listen to one another, not to silence one another."
Last week, Trump issued a statement decrying his ban from Twitter, pledging he would take action against the platforms soon and would not be "SILENCED." He pledged a "big announcement" soon.
Those threats have not yet materialized.
