Journalist Jack Posobiec unveiled an exclusive video from former President Donald Trump, where he goes on to lay out his five-step proposal for future legislation on protecting online free speech in the United States. Trump would go on to post the video onto his Truth Social account.
Many of the points Trump laid out are similar to Elon Musk’s policies with Twitter in recent months, however, Trump intends on attempting to similar policies into the legal standard for the United States.
In the video posted to Twitter by journalist Jack Posobiec, and Truth Social by former President Donald Trump, Trump says:
“If our rights and If we don’t have free speech then we just don’t have a free country. It’s as simple as that.
If this most fundamental right is allowed to perish then the rest of our rights and liberties will topple, just like dominoes one by one, they’ll go down. That’s why today I’m announcing my plan to shatter the left-wing censorship regime, and to reclaim the right to free speech for all Americans – and reclaim is a very important word in this case because they’ve taken it away.
In recent weeks Bombshell reports have confirmed that a sinister group of deep state bureaucrats, silicon valley tyrants. left-wing activists, and depraved corporate news media, have been conspiring to manipulate and silence the American people. They have collaborated to suppress vital information on everything from elections to public health. The censorship cartel must be dismantled and destroyed and it must happen immediately, and here’s my plan:
First, within hours of my inauguration. I will sign an executive order banning any federal department or agency from colluding with any organization, business or person to censor, limit, categorize, or impede the lawful speech of American citizens. I will then ban federal money from being used to label domestic speech as mis or dis information and I will begin the process of identifying and firing every federal bureaucrat who has engaged in domestic censorship directly or indirectly whether they are the Department of Homeland Security. The Department of Health Human Services. The FBI (or) the DOJ, no matter who they are.
Second, I will order the Department of Justice to investigate parties involved in the new online censorship regime – which is absolutely destructive and terrible – and to aggressively prosecute any and all crimes identified. These include possible violations of federal civil rights law, campaign finance laws, federal election law, securities law, and antitrust laws, the Hatch Act, and a host of other potential criminal civil regulatory and constitutional offenses. To assist in these efforts, I am urging House Republicans to immediately send preservation letters and we have to do this right now to the Biden administration the Biden campaign, and every Silicon Valley tech giant ordering them not to destroy evidence of censorship.
Third, upon my inauguration as President. I will ask Congress to send a bill to my desk revising Section 230 to be online platforms out of the censorship business, from now on digital platforms should only qualify for immunity protection under Section 230 if they meet high standards of neutrality, transparency, fairness, and non-discrimination. We should require these platforms to increase their efforts to take down unlawful content such as child exploitation and promoting terrorism, while dramatically curtailing arbitrarily restricting lawful speech.
Fourth, we need to break up the entire toxic censorship industry that has arisen under the false guise of tackling so-called mis and disinformation. The federal government should immediately stop funding. All non-profits and academic programs that support this authoritarian project. If any U.S. university is discovered to have engaged in censorship activities for election and interferences in the past such as flags, such as flagging social media content for removal of blacklisting, those universities should lose federal research dollars and federal student loan support for a period of five years, and maybe more. We should also enact new laws laying out clear criminal penalties for federal bureaucrats who partner with private entities to do an end-run around the Constitution and deprive Americans of their First, Fourth, and Fifth Amendment right. In other words, deprived them of their vote, and once you lose those elections and once you lose your borders like we have, you no longer have a country.
Furthermore, to confront the problems of major platforms being infiltrated by legions of former Deep Stators and intelligence officials. There should be a seven-year calling-off period before any employee of the FBI, CIA, DNI, DHS, or DOD is allowed to take a job at a company possessing vast quantities of U.S. user data
Fifth, the time finally come for Congress to pass a digital bill of rights. This should include a right to digital due process. In other words, government officials should need a court order to take down online content – not sending information requests such as the FBI was sending to Twitter. Furthermore, when users of big online platforms have their content or accounts removed, throttled, shadowbanned, or otherwise restricted, no matter what name they use. They should have the right to be informed that it’s happening the right way specific explanation of the reason why and the right to a timely appeal. In addition, all users over the age of 18 should have the right to opt-out of content, moderation, and curation entirely and receive an unmanipulated stream of information, if they so choose.
The fight for free speech is a matter of victory or death for America and for the survival of Western civilization itself. When I am president this whole rotten system of censorship and information control will be ripped out of the system at large. There won’t be anything left.
By restoring free speech, we will begin to reclaim our democracy and save our nation.
Thank you and God bless America”

Users on Twitter are responding positively to Trump’s pro-free speech tone towards social media. Since falling victim to an unjust ban without proper cause or notice from Twitter’s previous staff following the January 6th protest, Trump was banned from Twitter for nearly two years until Musk decided to unlock Trump’s account. In the meantime, Trump moved on to create his own social network, Truth Social.
