President Donald Trump made a promise on Saturday to address the censorship of conservatives on social media platforms.

“The Radical Left is in total command & control of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Google,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The Administration is working to remedy this illegal situation.”

The president shared a video of a speech from conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, who stood up for fellow conservatives who were removed from social media platforms because of their beliefs.

“Thank you Michelle!” he wrote.

President Trump has repeatedly criticized social media companies for censoring and deplatforming conservatives but has failed to take any serious action against them.

“Stay tuned, and send names & events,” Trump added.

Last year, the White House launched a tool for Americans to use if they felt wrongly censored, banned, or suspended from social media platforms:

“On May 15, President Trump asked Americans to share their stories of suspected political bias,” the website reads. “The White House received thousands of responses — thank you for lending your voice!”

The online form has since stopped accepting additional responses.

Editor’s note: The text of this story has been updated to clarify that the White House form for stories of social media censorship was launched last May, not this week.
