Trump rants about social media censorship, then retweets popular conspiracy site

The president of the United States shared a post by Infowars and a video from an unverified account called 'Deep State Exposed'.

President of the United States Donald Trump has retweeted a website responsible for circulating conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook shooting.

On Saturday, Trump raged about censorship on social media, following big tech companies banning several far-right figures from their platforms.

The president said that "conservative thinkers" were being unjustly banned yesterday and today retweeted several Twitter users with similar views, including Infowars contributor Paul Joseph Watson and far-right personality Lauren Southern.

Infowars have come in for criticism in the past for their videos about the Sandy Hook shooting, as they made claims that it was a conspiracy.

Southern, who the president retweeted, was once questioned at the UK's border under the Terrorism Act and subsequently permanently banned from entering the country.

She also authored a book titled 'Barbarians: How Baby Boomers, Immigrants, and Muslims Screwed My Generation.'

Trump also shared a video from unverified account called Deep State Exposed and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk.

Facebook banned Alex Jones, Milo Yiannopoulos and Paul Joseph Watson this week, as well as the EDL and BNP earlier this month.
