WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday the actions of Facebook, Twitter and Google are a "total disgrace" and the tech companies should pay a political price.

"What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country," Trump said in a statement accusing the companies of violating his free speech rights. "These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process."
