Trump Forces Facebook To Reinstate Nearly 30k Strong Conservative Group
Election day is close and liberals are clearly desperate. They are scared as polls are no longer showing that Biden has a double-digit lead over Trump. In fact, some are showing he is ahead of Biden and others say it is going to be real close. So Social Media Giant Facebook has decided to get back to doing what it does best and removed a 30k member group "New Jersey Women For Trump." They can't be due to bias right...
"On Saturday morning there were more than 29,000 members in a private Facebook group for New Jersey women who support President Trump — and by Saturday afternoon the group was gone."
"It was a lot of work over the past year for a private group to just be shut down without notification,” Confrey says. “Three days before Election Day? That is absolutely appalling. I just think these companies, these social media groups, have too much power. They offer to you to open up a group on their social media platform, and you could have 30,000 members, and they shut it down without telling you anything.”
“People are really, really mad,” Priscilla Confrey, co-director of the group, told NJ.com. “When you have that many people and they’re shut down, they feel silenced.”
Trump saw this and spoke out.
".@Facebook Put them back NOW!"

The New Jersey Women For Trump were not completely deterred as they created another group with the same name and made it public. But it turns out that the group was unnecessary since Facebook surprisingly listened and actually reinstated the site.
This is actually an amazing feat considering Facebook took down over 800 conservative pages in 2018 and they were never seen again. So it looks like Facebook will actually do the right thing every once and a while as long as the president calls them out.
