Owens said on "Fox & Friends" that she finds it comical that social media bans seems to only be happening with conservative voices.

President Trump sent a flurry of tweets Saturday morning criticizing social media sites' policies toward Republican and conservative voices. Both platforms were recently scrutinized over the decision to suspend Alex Jones, a controversial right-wing host, over "hate speech". "Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won't let that happen".

Jones issued a video plea urging Trump to block the companies' actions and "come out before the midterms and make the censorship the big issue".

One player who could stand in Olesen's way this week is two-time Major victor and former world No 1 Martin Kaymer. This year Fowler had his best finish in a major championship when he claimed second at the Masters.

Trump, himself no stranger to conspiracy theories, didn't mention Jones by name, but has appeared on his show in the past. In December 2015 he told the right wing propagandist that his "reputation is fantastic".

The president has lashed out angrily at the ongoing investigation from special counsel Robert Mueller into Russia's alleged influence campaign in the 2016 election, including potential ties to the Trump campaign. "Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!" he said at the end of a lengthy post on Twitter.

"If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed", he tweeted. "@Jack it's time for you to #StopTheBias against conservatives", Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., tweeted last month.
