Despite being a heavy user of Twitter, president Trump is not supporter of the open internet or net neutrality. In 2014, he criticized the FCC for ruling in favor of net neutrality and tweeted, “Obama’s attack on the Internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media.”
Back then, Trump was aspiring to run for the presidency. Now he is the 45th president of the United States. His appointment of net neutrality critic of Ajit Pai to head the FCC shows that his opinion about net neutrality has not changed.
