He insisted that if the former administration had been in the business of jailing those who criticise the government on social media many of those in power would be locked up.
He wrote, “If the past administration has arrested and jailed people for tweets, many of those in power today would have still be behind bars
“They don’t want to have a taste of the food they cooked. They are allergic to criticism.”
