President Donald Trump's signing of an executive order on social-media companies is being planned for Thursday afternoon but is still "in the works," White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said. A draft of the order would seek to limit legal protections that federal law currently provides social-media and other online platforms, the Wall Street Journal reported. The planned order comes after Twitter /zigman2/quotes/203180645/composite TWTR -2.05% on Tuesday for the first time applied a fact-check notice to tweets by Trump on the subject of voter fraud.
