JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

President Donald Trump told Breitbart Monday that there was collusion in the 2016 election — it was just supposedly between tech companies like Google and Facebook and Democrats that were out to stop him from becoming President.

“Actually it’s incredible that I won the election because you know it was so rigged against me,” Trump said. “It wasn’t Russians. Russia collusion was a delusion. But what there is, is there was collusion between the Democrats and these tech companies.”

“Isn’t it funny? Elizabeth Warren called for their total breakup,” he added. “I do smile though, they’re so protective of her.”

Trump then gave the (very) broad strokes of his plan to fight the “bias” of the big tech companies in 2020.

“You fight it by just being good. You got to be really good,” Trump said. “It’s much harder for a conservative Republican to win than it is for a liberal Democrat.”

The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree when it comes to paranoia about tech platforms’ bias: Donald Trump Jr. recently took to Instagram to yell about losing followers and likes.
