In an exclusive interview Friday, Vice President Mike Pence told Breitbart that the Trump administration is adamantly opposed to censorship of conservatives by social media and big tech companies.

"Well, the president has made it very clear that we are not going to tolerate censorship on the Internet and social media against conservatives," Pence said. "We're just not going to tolerate it."

Pence did not elaborate on how the Trump administration plans to combat the suppression of conservative voices, but "people familiar with the matter" said the White House is considering the formation of a commission that would investigate claims of anti-conservative bias, the Wall Street Journal reported.

On May 16, President Trump accused several social media platforms of serving the "radical left" and alluded to an impending White House-led remedy.

Both social media and big tech companies have continually denied claims of politically-motivated bias.
