(Fox Business) President Biden mentioned Elon Musk and Twitter during a fundraiser Friday night, suggesting his acquisition of the platform could allow its users to spew “lies all across the world.”

“Elon Musk goes out and buys an outlet that sends — that spews lies all across the world,” Biden remarked. “There are no editors anymore in America. There are no editors.”


The president seemed to suggest there was no longer any moderation on Twitter, a claim echoed by several others on the platform who are also critical of Musk.

“How do we expect kids to be able to understand what is at stake? What is at stake? So there’s a lot going on, a lot going on. But we have an enormous opportunity, enormous opportunity,” Biden added.

Musk has repeatedly said he wants to reel back some of Twitter’s moderation to allow free speech, but that he would not allow Twitter to “become a free-for-all hellscape, where anything can be said with no consequences.”

He has also announced the creation of a content moderation council.

Biden’s comments are the latest criticism Musk has faced over Twitter’s content moderation.

A group of more than 40 organizations, including the NAACP and GLAAD, has sent an open letter calling on Twitter’s top 20 largest advertisers to stop financing Twitter, as they too claim Musk’s proposed changes to the platform allows hate, harassment, and fake content to thrive.

The letter argues Musk has allowed the platform to be “inundated with hate and disinformation.”

Musk has repeatedly denied these claims.

“Twitter will not censor accurate information about anything,” he tweeted Friday.
