President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, attacked social media companies Monday for allegedly squashing speech in an interview on the television program "CBS This Morning."
"I think that when the left found out that Facebook, a tool built by Silicon Valley, helped elect President Trump, they weren't very happy," Parscale said. "And so they want to do everything they can to help prevent conservative voices. And I think that you have multiple platforms I call the 'Palo Alto mafia' trying to stop that."
Parscale, now chief of Trump's 2020 campaign, spearheaded the president's digital media strategy in 2016. Trump originally hired him to build a website for his exploratory campaign in 2015. Parscale eventually took on a prominent role as a digital strategist, rising to become one of the campaign's central decision-makers.
