Twitter suspended President Trump after he showed support for the Capitol protesters in early January. Andrew Torba, the CEO of Gab, a competitor to Twitter, revealed earlier this month that Donald Trump never joined Gab because Jared Kushner “specifically had problems with people [on the site] criticizing Jewish people, and Zionism, and policies related to Israel.” Torba said that he refused to compromise Gab’s free speech policies, which was a deal-breaker for Trump’s handlers. The day Trump joined Rumble, the video hosting platform changed their terms of service to ban posts that are “anti-semitic” and “hateful.” There is no mention of who will decide when something fits this category. -GEG

Gab CEO Andrew Torba revealed earlier this month that Donald Trump never joined Gab because Jared Kushner “specifically had problems with people [on the site] criticizing Jewish people, and Zionism, and policies related to Israel.”

“I mean, that’s specifically what I was told, is ‘You have to do something about these people.’” Torba said during an interview with TruNews. “He called them Jew haters, I call them Jew criticizers.”

Torba said his refusal to “sell out” and “compromise on Gab’s free speech policies” was a deal-breaker for Kushner and Trump’s handlers which kept him from joining the site.

“Some of these people believe that anyone who criticizes or even has remotely any sort of criticism towards Jewish people or towards Israel or towards international policy, is all of a sudden an anti-Semite right, which is totally absurd on its face,” Torba continued.

“We’re a content-neutral platform. It’s a free speech platform,” Torba said. “So as long as you’re not saying anything illegal, as long as you’re not making threats of violence, you’re allowed to speak your mind and have an opinion about things.”


On Saturday, the day Trump joined Rumble, the video hosting platform changed their terms of service to ban posts that are “anti-semitic” and “hateful.”

Torba highlighted the policy change in a post on Gab:

It looks like Torba wasn’t exaggerating!
