Conservative billionaire Paul Singer was once a Never-Trumper, even though he donated $24 million to GOP candidates and causes in 2016. But after the president took office in 2017 he changed his mind.
The president welcomed him on board.
“As you know, Paul was very much involved with the anti-Trump or as they say ‘Never Trump,’ and Paul just left [the White House] and he’s given us his total support and it’s all about unification. So, I want to thank Paul Singer for being here and coming up to the office. He was a very strong opponent and now he’s a very strong ally and I appreciate that.”
Now Singer has bought a major stake in Twitter and will seek to end the anti-Trump and anti-conservative bias there by working to oust Twitter founder and hard-core leftist Jack Dorsey.
If Singer is successful it would deny the Democrats and the Left one of their major propaganda platforms going into the 2020 general election.
Twitter has long held a grudge against the Right. So much so some GOP elected officials have been forced to act.
Fox News reports that, “…California GOP Rep. Devin Nunes last year filed a major lawsuit seeking $250 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages against Twitter and a handful of its users, accusing the social media site of ‘shadow-banning conservatives’ to secretly hide their posts, systematically censoring opposing viewpoints, and totally ‘ignoring’ lawful complaints of repeated abusive behavior.”

Nunes’ lawyer was not shy about hitting Twitter.
“Twitter is a machine,” attorney Steven S. Biss told Fox News. “It is a modern-day Tammany Hall. Congressman Nunes intends to hold Twitter fully accountable for its abusive behavior and misconduct.”
Twitter is covert in its bias. It contrives false evidence or applies a double standard to the Left and Right to enforce its ideological guidelines.
Because of public pressure it has desisted somewhat as of late. But as long as Jack Dorsey runs the firm the Right will be under fire on Twitter.
