U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is increasing its pressure on social media companies such as Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. over alleged political bias with a White House form for reporting potential censorship of political views.

"Too many Americans have seen their accounts suspended, banned, or fraudulently reported for unclear ‘violations’ of user policies," according to the form, which the White House’s official Twitter account posted on Wednesday. "No matter your views, if you suspect political bias caused such an action to be taken against you, share your story with President Trump."
