Donald Trump on Sunday told Facebook to reinstate a New Jersey women’s group with 29,000 supporters of the president after it was reportedly removed by the site. 

The private group was taken down without warning or explanation, according to its directors. 

‘@Facebook Put them back NOW!’, the president tweeted early Sunday morning. 

DailyMail.com has contacted Facebook for comment. The CEOs of Twitter, Facebook and Google were all forced to rebuff accusations of anti-conservative bias at a Senate hearing last Wednesday. 

Co-director of New Jersey Women For Trump, Priscilla Confrey, told NJ.com: ‘Three days before Election Day? That is absolutely appalling. I just think these companies, these social media groups, have too much power. 

‘They offer to you to open up a group on their social media platform, and you could have 30,000 members, and they shut it down without telling you anything.’

Confrey said the site had flagged some posts on her page, relating to COVID, but says that she removed them from the site. 

She added: ‘People are really, really mad. When you have that many people and they’re shut down, they feel silenced.’ 

Confrey says she has reached out to Facebook over the page’s removal but has not heard back. 

She added: ‘It was a lot of work over the past year for a private group to just be shut down without notification.’

By Sunday morning, a new page had been set up; it has more than 11,000 followers. 

Republicans, led by Trump, have accused the social media platforms, of deliberately suppressing conservative views. 

They say that behavior has reached new heights in the contest between the president and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. 

Republicans have criticized a move by Facebook and Twitter to limit dissemination of the New York Post’s story about Hunter Biden. 

The story cited emails from Biden’s son Hunter that were reportedly disclosed by Trump allies.

One of the co-directors, Priscilla Confrey, called the move 'absolutely appalling' 'People are really, really mad...they feel silenced', she added. The CEOs of Twitter, Facebook and Google were all forced to rebuff accusations of anti-conservative bias last Wednesday

‘Twitter’s conduct has by far been the most egregious,’ Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey last week. 

Cruz cited Twitter’s limitations on the newspaper story as part of ‘a pattern of censorship and silencing Americans with whom Twitter disagrees.’

‘Who the hell elected you? And put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report?’ Cruz asked.
