Trump Campaign Manager Accuses Google, Twitter of ‘Voter Suppression’

Brad Parscale, the campaign manager of President Trump’s re-election campaign, has called out social media platforms like Google and Twitter for restricting political ads, which he says is equivalent to “voter suppression,” according to The Daily Caller.

As previously reported, Twitter had made the announcement that it would no longer run political ads of any kind, sparking a heated debate between the major social media platforms on whether or not to restrict political content as the 2020 presidential election draws closer. Google soon followed suit by banning targeted political ads, while Facebook has allowed political ads to continue on its platform.

“What Google has just done,” Parscale said, “would be no different than the phone companies taking our phone lists and saying, ‘you can’t call your voters.’ That is a complete voter suppression activity.”

But Parscale also offered an optimistic take on the campaign’s overall situation, saying that the campaign’s grassroots strategy is also massive, and consists of more traditional campaign work and promotion across the country that cannot be suppressed on social media. The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee combined have “2 million active volunteers” working for President Trump’s re-election campaign, with work that includes “collecting phone numbers, knocking on doors, and mobilizing volunteers.”
