Trump has frequently accused tech companies of censorship over his removal from both Facebook and Twitter for violating their policies. However, the section 230 gives websites the ability to regulate the content that appears on their platforms. It also protects sites from being legally liable for content shared by users.
Trump spoke on the final day of CPAC in Orlando, Florida. It was his first public speech since leaving the White House last month. He further called on US states to punish companies like Twitter, Google and Facebook with sanctions "whenever they silence conservative voices". Twitter permanently banned Trump after the attack at the US Capitol.
Trump further emphasised on the time has come to break up big tech monopolies and restore fair competition," Trump said, adding that section 230 - a piece of internet legislation passed into law as part of the Communications Decency Act of 1996 - must be repealed.
