Rep. Madison Cawthorn, RN.C., told “Fox & Friends” it’s time to “fight” big tech censorship, after Twitter and other social media platforms permanently banned the president Trump.
The youngest congressman called the bans a “dangerous precedent” and suggested that some form of “trust circumvention” might be necessary.
He also supports Trump-sponsored changes to a key online liability law – Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects publishers from lawsuits for what users post to their sites.

“The future of the Republican Party is bright,” said the 25-year-old representative, despite mounting evidence of a deep divide within the party.
