The United States Senator, Lindsey Graham has said that the decision to permanently banned US President, Donald Trump on Twitter is a serious mistake.

The Senator who disclosed this on his official social platform on Friday, vowed to strip Section 230 protections from Big Tech (Twitter) that let them be immune from lawsuits.

According to him, “Twitter may ban me for this but I willingly accept that fate: Your decision to permanently ban President Trump is a serious mistake.

“Big Tech are the only companies in America that virtually have absolute immunity from being sued for their actions, and it’s only because Congress gave them that protection”, he said.

Graham called on the Congress to repeal Section 230 and put Big Tech on the same legal footing as every other company in America. “Legal accountability”, he said.

Earlier, he warned against impechment of President Trump over the Capitol riots that led to many injured and death on the claimed election fraud against the President-elect, Joe Biden.

“I’m convinced impeachment, under these circumstances, will further divide the country and erode the institution of the presidency itself”, he said.

He further said this is time to heal the nation. “I hope President-elect Biden shares those views and will speak out so we can continue to heal the nation with an orderly transfer of power”, he said.
