Sacha Baron Cohen has swept through on Twitter and accuses the social media platform for the rise of extreme right-wing politics and the election of President Trump.

The comedian, best known for his bumbling character Borat, said the social media platform & # 39; proclaims democracy & # 39; because disinformation spreads just as quickly as the truth.

He blamed this for Trump's rise and claimed that & # 39; it allows people who spread lies to really seem like they are legitimate & # 39; before adding: & # 39; Trump without Twitter would probably not be a president have become & # 39 ;.

Cohen, 47, then suggested the reason that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had personally spoken to the president because he knew how important Trump & # 39; s approval of the platform is.

& # 39; They can't get rid of far-right Twitter accounts because it could harm part of the Republican base, & # 39; Cheadle said in response to Cohen.

& # 39; What is fascinating is that he is sitting opposite the president, & # 39; Cohen continued. Add: & # 39; [Trump & # 39; s] is actually the biggest celebrity endorser of his company. & # 39;

If Twitter & # 39; got rid of the racists & # 39; on his platform, Cohen said, & # 39; they will have fewer Twitter subscribers. & # 39;

Earlier this month, Twitter said it had suspended more than 160,000 accounts in the second half of 2018 for violating its terrorism promotion policy.

& # 39; They can't get rid of far-right Twitter accounts, because it can affect part of the Republican base & # 39 ;, Cheadle said in response to Cohen.

& # 39; It's fine not to give people who want to kill people because they have different absolute rights & # 39 ;, says the English-born artist.

& # 39; We now live in a society where the space in which we grew up – that's the idea that society is getting better, where black people can get full rights, they can vote, where people are equal despite their differences – that concept is disintegrated.

& # 39; Democracy has fallen apart. That is frightening for me. & # 39;

Before sheepishly adding: & # 39; I'm going to say all this with the warning that I'm a comedian, that I don't really know what I'm talking about. These are just the things that are going on in my head. & # 39;
