U.S. Chamber Response to Executive Order on Social Media Companies

  • PRESS RELEASE

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce issued the following statement today in response to President Trump’s executive order on narrowing liability protections for social media companies:

“We believe that free speech and the right to engage in commerce are foundational to the American free enterprise system. Regardless of the circumstances that led up to this, this is not how public policy is made in the United States. An executive order cannot be properly used to change federal law.”
