(UnitedVoice.com) – Jenna Ellis, legal counsel for the Trump campaign, fired off a fiery letter to officials at Facebook and Twitter regarding an advertisement posted on their platforms by the Biden campaign.
The Trump administration has locked horns with critics regarding disputed allegations published on September 3 by The Atlantic. The Biden campaign quickly released a digital ad quoting the article.
Ellis issued a cease-and-desist order on September 10 to officials at Facebook, Twitter, and the Biden campaign seeking removal of the ad. Writing on behalf of Donald J. Trump for President, Ellis wrote in the order that the ad contained “intentionally false” statements intended to mislead viewers.

During an interview with Fox Business Host Charles Payne, Ellis accused the social media giants of using a double-standard. As she astutely pointed out, both sites would have “flagged” any Trump campaign ad based on “false” and “unverified sources.”
Why aren’t they “treating the Biden campaign the same?” she added.
While it’s understandable that political battles get heated on occasion, it’s entirely unacceptable to publish ads based on unsubstantiated rumors. Enough is enough!
