US President Donald Trump has signed an executive order aimed at removing some of the legal protections given to social media platforms, the BBC reported.

The new executive order gives regulators the power to pursue legal actions against firms such as Facebook and Twitter for the way they police content on their platforms.

President Trump accused social media platforms of having “unchecked power” while signing the order.

The order is expected to face legal challenges.

Critics and several legal experts says the US Congress or the court system must be involved to change the current legal understanding of protections for these platforms.
