President Trump has retweeted an Infowars video by reporter Millie Weaver showing black Trump supporters dispelling the fake news narrative that all conservatives are racist whites.
The tweet comes after Facebook purged “dangerous” Paul Joseph Watson and journalist Laura Loomer from its platform.
“So great to watch this!” Trump tweeted Saturday.

Trump also retweeted Watson’s latest video describing Facebook and Instagram’s banning of him and other conservative figures.
Or giving a handful of giant partisan corporations the power to decide who has free speech?

Trump first extended his support for Infowars on Friday after tweeting out a Breitbart article detailing Big Tech’s bans against Watson and actor James Woods.
“So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!” he said.

Facebook announced its ban of Watson, Loomer, Louis Farrakhan and others on Thursday, claiming “dangerous” behavior.
“We’ve always banned individuals or organizations that promote or engage in violence and hate, regardless of ideology,” a Facebook spokesperson told The Daily Beast.
“The process for evaluating potential violators is extensive and it is what led us to our decision to remove these accounts today.”
The tweets triggered CNN’s Oliver Darcy, who complained on Twitter that Trump’s support for Infowars and the First Amendment was “reprehensible.”
Trump's a.m. Twitter activity is being played up by InfoWars, as you'd expect. Reprehensible that the president is legitimizing this organization while also working to delegitimize credible sources for news. pic.twitter.com/nhwsJ1dEjw
