The social media giant, Facebook is not invited to a White House summit which will be held on Thursday, July 11. The authorities from Facebook said that it has not been invited to the event. On the other hand, the officials at the White House declined to reveal who will attend this important event.
Last month, Judd Deere the White House spokesperson said that this event would “bring together digital leaders for a robust conversation on the opportunities and challenges of today’s online environment.” On Monday, he revealed that US President Donal Trump would address the guests of the event.
Many renowned personalities will be attending the event, including Bill Mitchell, who is a die-hard supporter of Donald Trump and also is the host of an online show. A couple of social media users also posted photos of this summit’s invitation revealing that it will take place 3 p.m.
Politicians who support Trump have been using social media to attract the voters directly. Trump himself endorsed this fact on different occasions that without Facebook and Twitter, he would not have been elected for the office of President.
On the contrary, without presenting any evidence, Trump always criticizes Twitter and Facebook as being “biased” in favor of their opposition party Democrats.
In an interview to Fox Business Network last month, Trump expressed that it “very hard for people to join me at Twitter… and they make it very much harder for me to get out the message.”
Trump also tweeted in March that “Facebook, Google, and Twitter, not to mention the Corrupt Media, are on the side of the Radical Left Democrats. But fear not, we will win anyway, just like we did before!”
However, Google, Facebook, and Twitter denied the opinion of Trump by saying that they are not biased.
A spokesperson from Facebook revealed in an email that Facebook is not invited in the White House summit.
Twitter also declined to reveal whether it will be a part of the guests or not. Alphabet/s Google unit also kept it secret whether it will be a part of the event or not.
