White House says tech companies have responsibility to stop spread of misinformation, won’t comment on Trump’s Facebook suspension

White House press secretary Jen Psaki addressed a decision by Facebook’s oversight board to uphold the suspension of former president Trump’s Facebook account for now during a Wednesday briefing. She said they do not have a comment on the board’s decision or the future of the former president’s social media platform. Psaki then pivoted to tech companies, arguing the president’s view that they have a responsibility to stop the spread of misinformation on their websites and should enforce better privacy protections.
