The White House reportedly plans to hold a summit on social media. This comes as President Donald Trump and some in Congress continue to accuse the sites of being biased against conservatives

The summit, planned for July 11, "will bring together digital leaders for a robust conversation on the opportunities and challenges of today's online environment," said White House spokesman Judd Deere, according to Reuters. The White House reportedly didn't say who will take part in the summit. 

The White House, along with Twitter and Google, didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. Facebook declined to comment.

On Wednesday, Trump again, without evidence, accused social media sites of censoring conservatives.

"These people are all Democrats, it's totally biased toward Democrats," Trump said in an interview with Fox Business. "If I announced tomorrow that I'm going to become a nice liberal Democrat, I would pick up five times more followers."

Earlier this month, Sen. Josh Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, introduced legislation that would compel tech companies to prove their practices are politically neutral.
