Twitter and other social media are discriminating against conservatives, US President Donald Trump charged on Tuesday.

"It seems to be if they are conservative, if they are Republicans, in a certain group, there is discrimination. I see it on Twitter and Facebook," Trump said at a joint press briefing with his Brazilian counterpart Jair Bolsonaro.

Earlier in the day Trump expressed similar complaints on Twitter where, despite his allegations of bias, he himself has 59 million followers.
