During a speech on Tuesday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blasted Apple for being a “vassal of the Chinese Communist Party.”
The comments from DeSantis come in response to growing criticism of the tech giant for their questionable practices in Communist China and as they threaten to take Twitter off the App Store.
“Apple is threatening to remove Twitter from the App Store because Elon Musk is actually opening it up for free speech and restoring a lot of accounts that were unfairly and illegitimately suspended for putting out accurate information about Covid,” DeSantis said during a press conference in Duval County.
The governor went on to say that congress should take action if Apple decides to target Twitter.
“That would be a huge, huge mistake, and it would be a really raw exercise of monopolistic power that I think would merit a response from the United States Congress,” he said.
DeSantis’ comments mirror those of Twitter owner Elon Musk who on Monday, blasted Apple in a series of tweets after the tech giant suspended almost all advertisements on Twitter.
“Apple has mostly stopped advertising on Twitter. Do they hate free speech in America?” the Tesla CEO asked.
Musk then took a more aggressive stance against Apple when he followed up with a poll.
“Apple should publish all censorship actions it has taken that affects its customers,” Musk inquired.
