Former President Donald Trump resumed his rebuke of big tech monopolies, calling for free speech, sanctions, and a repeal of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

"The time has come to break up big tech monopolies and restore fair competition," Trump said during his wide-ranging speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Sunday in Orlando, Florida. "Republicans, conservatives must open up our platforms and repeal Section 230 liability protections."

Trump added a call for "major" anti-trust sanctions for social media companies holding bias against conservatives and violating constitutional protections of free speech.

"And if the federal government refuses to act – in every state in the union where we have the votes, which is a lot of them – big tech giants like Twitter, Google, and Facebook should be punished with major sanctions whenever they silence conservative voices."

Trump hailed the fight against big tech censorship by Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis and Republican leaders in Texas.

"We have no time to waste," Trump said.
