The president is angry at Twitter for stopping his campaign and supporters from sharing an article about Biden and his son Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine. "You're the president, you're not like someone's insane uncle who can just retweet whatever".

"In a final attempt to prevent the spread of negative stories about Joe Biden and his family, Twitter closed its entire social network on Thursday", it said.

Trump shared the article, seemingly in earnest, writing "Wow, this has never been done in history". "Why is Twitter doing this", he asked in the tweet.

"Sleepy Joe Biden had an extremely bad displaying last night, in spite of the fact that @GStephanopoulos did not ask him some questions about his being "corrupt politician" Enormous Tech & Lamestream Media are working hard to hide this corruption!" "Bringing more attention to Sleepy Joe & Big T", Trump tweeted.

The Babylon Bee has embraced Mr Trump's endorsement, and has responded with the article "President Trump Declares The Babylon Bee His Most-Trusted News Source".

President Donald Trump has been a vocal champion against so-called fake news, making the claim that major networks with reputations to uphold have fabricated facts.

Mr Trump has tweeted articles from the Babylon Bee in the past and the site told The New York Times earlier in October that it was "assured" Mr Trump knew it was satire.

The Babylon Bee is a satire news publication that mock liberals.

"Just this week, I retweeted the conspiracy theory that Joe Biden hatched to kill the SEAL Team Six, the Navy SEAL Team Six, to cover up (Osama) bin Laden's fake death". The president explained he just "puts things out there and people can decide for themselves". "Now, why would you send a lie like that to your followers?" moderator Savannah Guthrie asked him. And I do a lot of tweets. And frankly, because the media is so fake, and so corrupt, if I didn't have social media - I don't call it Twitter, I call it social media.

He continued to sow doubt over the election results on Thursday, CNN said, and made baseless claims about Obama administration officials spying on his 2016 campaign in an NBC town hall held at the Perez Art Museum in Miami.

"Well, the word is wrong", she replied.

"And you know what the word is? We're building our country, stronger and better than it's ever been before", the President concluded.

Trump and his allies have claimed that tech companies are ideologically biased, but Twitter says the Post story violates its policies about sharing hacked material.
