From the Video Description
America is under threat from ideologies that are eroding our founding principles.
The American way of life, including federalism, free speech, and the rule of law, is being undermined and distorted in our courts.
The America First Policy Institute is establishing the Constitutional Litigation Partnership to restore the most fundamental rights of all Americans.
The Partnership will fight to restore a government that is of the people, for the people, and by the people

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey were named in the lawsuits—as well as the companies themselves.
Trump said the lawsuits will try to compel the court to award him punitive damages over the suspension.
“This lawsuit is just the beginning,” Trump said of the suits.
Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act allows internet companies to be generally exempt from liability for the material that users post.
The law, which provides a legal “safe harbor” for internet companies, also allows social media platforms to moderate their services by removing posts that, for instance, are obscene or violate the services’ own standards, so long as they are acting in “good faith.”
Trump’s lawyers said the lawsuit will focus on provisions in Section 230, which they argued was created in the 1990s to protect children from harmful content online.
The way in which Big Tech firms currently use the law as a shield, his team argued, oversteps what it originally intended to do.
“They are not immune anymore,” lawyer Pam Bondi said.
