It’s no secret that President Trump and the social media titans don’t have much love for each other.
While more than a few conservatives very well may agree with the Prez that the likes of Twitter and Facebook have a distinct bias against conservatives, we’ve also wondered what could ever be done to ensure these internet giants cease and desist from their collective heavy-handed silencing of anything and everything that even dares to slightly lean right.
With the official title of White House Correspondent, Jeff Mason of the Reuters news service is noting that White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has cryptically told the WH press corps that President Trump that something, indeed, will be done.
.@realDonaldTrump will sign an executive order shortly about social media and internet companies, @PressSec tells reporters on Air Force One. The president has been very critical of @Twitter in the last 24 hours.

While McEnany was short on specifics, many on the Right are breathing a sign of relief that the very same supposedly “politically neutral” tech companies that have an almost total stranglehold on social media will finally be brought to heel.
While the likes of Google, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter have a special dispensation from the US Congress that these Silicon Valley companies are not technically considered news organizations, there is speculation that the President very well may deem them such, therefore making them subject to anti-monopoly legislation.
