President Trump has accused people or entities of committing treason at least 24 times since he was elected, according to a record of his comments. His most recent target is the New York Times, which published a story on Saturday reporting that the U.S. is stepping up its online attacks on Russia's power grid.

Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia. This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country.

Why it matters: Treason is one of the most serious crimes an American can commit, and is punishable by death. The president freely using the term to attack his political enemies, without evidence, is not normal.

Trump retweets claim that Big Tech censorship of conservatives is "fascism"

President Trump on Sunday evening retweeted a claim from user @TheRightMelissa that Big Tech companies like Twitter are "colluding with Democrats" to censor conservative content, which she alleged amounts to "fascism."

"For the few conservatives they have left on, twitter is engaged in shadow banning of conservative content. For example twitter has made it such that my followers will not see my tweets in trending topics. Big Tech is colluding with Democrats to shut down opposition. Fascism"
