"President Trump said while speaking with CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Monday that tech companies such as Facebook, Google, and Amazon "discriminate against" him.

"People talk about collusion, I can tell you that the real collusion is between the democrats and these companies, because they were so against me during my election run," he said to the network when asked about the ongoing antitrust concerns surrounding these companies. "Everybody said if you don't have them, you can't win. Well I won, and I'll win again."

The comments come after executives from Google, Facebook, and Twitter testified before Congress last year to address allegations of bias on their platforms, among other topics. Google CEO Sundar Pichai denied such allegations when appearing before Congress in December, saying that the company's only mission is to provide "accurate, trusted information." Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said when testifying in September that his company "strongly believes in being impartial" and that it strives "to enforce our rules impartially." Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has also denied such allegations of intentional bias, saying last April that the goal of his company is to "be a platform for all ideas."
