WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he had a “great meeting” Tuesday with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey after bashing the company profusely earlier in the day.

Trump and some Republicans in Congress have complained that social media giants are biased against Republicans, something the companies have rejected as untrue.

Trump gave his readout of the meeting on Twitter, writing: “Lots of subjects discussed regarding their platform, and the world of social media in general. Look forward to keeping an open dialogue!”

While some tech company executives may lean liberal, they have long asserted that their products are without political bias.

Trump had tweeted earlier Tuesday that Twitter didn’t treat him well and that he would have more followers “if Twitter wasn’t playing their political games.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community.
