President Donald Trump signed the bill that included aid to citizens affected by the economic disaster caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus and the government spending plan, averting a shutdown.
“I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more,” President Trump explained in a Dec. 27 White House statement.
President Trump refused to sign off on a $600 aid package proposed by the Democrats, and after restricting nonessential government spending, he managed to more than triple that amount.
“As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child,” Trump added.
In doing so, he is fulfilling his responsibility to protect people from the economic losses caused by the CCP Virus, and from small businesses “forced to close as a result of harsh actions by Democrat-run states,” he explained.
In this way, “a family of four [two adults and two children] would receive $5,200,” the White House statement said.
Another of the points that President Trump demanded to be reviewed in the bill initially presented by the Democrats, was to strip Big Tech like Twitter and Facebook of the protections of Section 230, in which they hide violating the right to free expression of their millions of users.
“Additionally, Congress has promised that Section 230, which so unfairly benefits Big Tech at the expense of the American people, will be reviewed and either be terminated or substantially reformed,” Trump announced in the same statement.
“Big Tech must not get the protections of Section 230! Voter fraud must be fixed! I will never give up my fight for the American people,” Trump concluded in his statement.
The censorship imposed by Twitter and Facebook substantially affects the free expression of citizens who do not follow the leftist narrative of those networks, and seek to advance the unpopular policies of the Democrats, as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) put it.
“Big Tech billionaires in Silicon Valley consistently work to advance the interests of the Democratic Party while silencing those with whom they disagree,” Cruz said.
He added, “And they do so while enjoying a special immunity from liability under Section 230—which effectively operates as massive corporate welfare.”
