Former US president Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against tech giants Google, Twitter and Facebook, claiming that he is the victim of censorship.

The class action lawsuit also targets the three companies’ CEOs.

Trump was suspended from his social accounts in January over public safety concerns in the wake of the Capitol riots, led by his supporters.

In a news conference in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump railed against social media companies and Democrats, who he accused of espousing misinformation.

None of the tech companies named have yet responded to the lawsuit, which was filed to a federal court in Florida.

Trump was joined at the announcement by former supporting officials who have since created the not-for-profit America First Policy Institute.

The lawsuit has been criticized by legal experts, who pointed to Trump’s habit of issuing lawsuits for media attention but not aggressively defending the claims in court.
