    Trump's social media summit.jpg

    This should be fun... Trump's social media summit is stacked with conservative voices. Here's who was invited

    Who's attending?
    • Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.
      Sen. Blackburn, a first-term senator from Tennessee, has been critical of big tech companies and what she refers to as “big tech censorship.” Her office said she plans to attend, according to Politico.
    • Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla.
      Rep. Gaetz has been a staunch defender of Trump on Twitter, though his Twitter usage recently got him into trouble with the House Ethics Committee, which will investigate Gaetz's Twitter usage after he tweeted comments at Michael Cohen before Trump's former personal lawyer testified before Congress. Politico was the first outlet to report Gaetz's planned attendance.
    • James O’Keefe
      O’Keefe is the head of Project Veritas, a controversial group known for attempting to send operatives undercover to record videos reportedly showing anti-conservative bias at tech companies or showing Democratic candidates in hidden-camera moments. For example, Project Veritas sent operatives to infiltrate Democratic campaigns during the 2018 midterm elections to record videos of candidates. O’Keefe has defended the practice, calling himself a “guerilla journalist.” O'Keefe tweeted on July 8 to confirm his attendance at the summit.
    • Bill Mitchell
      Mitchell is the host of YourVoice America and a prominent defender of Trump on Twitter. The now-defunct Weekly Standard called him Trump’s “unofficial Twitter mascot.” Mitchell has also promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory on his show. Mitchell tweeted on July 2 to say he was attending.
    • John Matze
      Matze is the CEO of Parler, a Twitter alternative used by Trump supporters, some of whom have been banned from Twitter like Gavin McInnes, Laura Loomer and Milo Yiannopoulos. Politico reported in May 2019 that the Trump campaign was considering creating an account for Trump on the website. Matze told Reuters he was going to attend.
    • Charlie Kirk
      Kirk runs Turning Point USA, a conservative advocacy group. The group keeps a list of college professors who it says discriminate against students with conservative views. Kirk told the Washington Post he planned to attend.
    • Carpe Donktum
      This is an alias for a Twitter user, a self-described “Eternally Sarcastic Memesmith specializing in the creation of memes to support President Donald J. Trump.” This user is accused of doctoring videos, some of which have been retweeted by Trump. Donktum said on July 2 it was attending.
    • Ryan Fournier
      Fournier is the 23-year-old co-chair of Students for Trump and a frequent defender of the president on Twitter. On June 29, Fournier made a Facebook post announcing his attendance.
    Others who have been invited include:
    • Members of the Heritage Foundation, including Robert Bluey, vice president of communications and executive editor of The Daily Signal, a conservative news outlet published by the Heritage Foundation. The Washington Post reported Bluey's invitation.
    • Christian Ziegler, the vice chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, who tweeted on July 7 about attending.
    • Will Chamberlain, publisher of conservative magazine Human Events, who tweeted about the summit on Wednesday.
    • The Claremont Institute, a conservative think tank, whose attendance was reported by the Wall Street Journal.
    • Dennis Prager, head of Prager University, a conservative video outlet. The Washington Post reported his group's invitation.
    • Brent Bozell, the founder of Media Research Center, a think tank which has alleged bias against conservatives in the media. The Washington Post reported his invitation.
    • Ali Alexander, who previously went by Ali Akbar, a right-wing personality, who promoted a smear campaign alleging Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., was not African American. Akbar tweeted on Wednesday to confirm he was asked to "bring info on deplatformed citizens" to the summit.
    • Benny Johnson, the Turning Point USA chief creative officer, and a former BuzzFeed editor. Johnson posted on Instagram to confirm his attendance.
    • Tim Pool, an independent video journalist. Pool posted a YouTube video on July 9 to announce he was attending.
    Who's NOT invited:
    • Google representaives.
    • Facebook representatives.
    • Twitter representatives.

    I say: The summit is Trump's big move after the fashion of the Mueller "Russian Interference" investigation.
