US President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused technology giants Facebook, Twitter and Google of being biased to the Democratic opposition, a day after two Senate reports said Russian agents had used social media to push Trump's 2016 election.

"Facebook, Twitter and Google are biased to the Democrats," Trump wrote on Twitter.

"Twitter, in fact, has made it much more difficult for people to join @realDonaldTrump. They have removed many names & greatly slowed the level and speed of increase. They have acknowledged-done NOTHING!" he said.

According to two reports at the request of the US Congress that the Russian-based Internet Research Agency, which is considered by the US judiciary as a Kremlin-driven puppet, has worked to deter a large segment of Americans, Ethnic minorities, to vote.
