Delaney on President Trump Signing Internet Privacy Rollback: Trump Cares About His Privacy, Not Yours

Apr 4, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON – Last night, President Donald J. Trump signed, S.J. Res 34, legislation that allows internet providers to collect, sell and share consumers’ browsing history, app usage, emails, location information and more without the permission of the user. Congressman John K. Delaney (MD-6) voted against this bill on the House floor, where it passed in a 215-205 vote. S.J. Res 34 repealed existing Federal Communications Commission (FCC) user protections  

“President Trump refuses to release his tax returns and his visitor logs from Mar-A-Largo, but he’s happy to let internet providers sell people’s browsing history to the highest bidder. The bottom line is that President Trump cares about his privacy, but he doesn’t care about your privacy,” said Congressman Delaney. “My constituents are outraged by this and my office has been flooded with calls, emails and letters on this topic. If there’s one thing that the President has shown that he cares about it is public opinion and I encourage everyone to continue to speak out.”
