Donald J. Trump is now the president of the United States of America. While his stances on prominent issues like immigration and trade are fairly clear, there are some smaller issues that have not enjoyed as much time in the spotlight. Net neutrality is one of those issues.
While I can’t recall as single time that net neutrality was discussed during the campaign of any candidate last year, it’s highly unlikely that this means the issue will simply be swept under the rug for the next four years. The clues regarding the future of net neutrality in America are there, so allow me to uncover some of them for you.
Let’s begin with the newly elected president himself.
President Trump’s Stance
President Trump has not gone into much detail concerning how he feels about net neutrality. The only insight we have is a tweet he sent out in November of 2014.
Obama’s attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media.
