Trump says he’ll veto defense bill unless Section 230 is terminated

Pres­i­dent Trump tweet­ed late Tues­day that he will veto the Nation­al Defense Autho­riza­tion Act unless Con­gress repeals Sec­tion 230 of the 1996 Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Decen­cy Act, which crit­ics say unfair­ly shields social media plat­forms from lia­bil­i­ty over items post­ed on their platforms.

These oppo­nents have been vocal that tech behe­moths like Twit­ter and Face­book should no longer be shield­ed as a neu­tral plat­form when they oper­ate more like a publisher.

The crit­i­cism seemed to reach its tip­ping point dur­ing the Hunter Biden scan­dal in the weeks pri­or to the pres­i­den­tial election.
