Trump implicates the FCC in his war with Twitter

President Donald Trump's efforts to make regulatory decisions by social media companies may face difficult challenges for regulators, who previously said that despite the president of the Federal Communications Commission  Ajit Pai, it is not so and have not supported Trump's new proposal to monitor the behavior of Internet companies, but they "The commission will carefully review all petitions related to the rules," she said in a statement.

(Pei) said in August 2018: he hoped social media companies would support freedom of expression, but he didn't see the FCC's role in regulating websites like Twitter, Facebook, and Google.

Federal Communications Commissioner Brendan Carr said he hoped the committee would seek a public opinion on the National Communications and Information Administration (NTIA) petition to clarify what good company meant and allow it to draw clear lines and misconduct among behaviors.
