A number of social media sites, such as Twitter and Facebook, have blocked the accounts of US President Donald Trump citing political reasons and thereby installing themselves as protectors of the people and institutions. These sites are not elected and have no political legitimacy granting them the right to prevent the leader of the most powerful country in the world from addressing his people. This is a unilateral decision regarding a very important and dangerous issue.
