WASHINGTON — The Justice Department proposed legislation Wednesday to narrow a key set of legal protections that shield internet companies like Facebook and Google from lawsuits over their efforts to police speech online, marking the latest escalation of the Trump administration’s battle with social media platforms.

Months later, he unveiled SoftBank’s $100 billion Vision Fund, which was tasked with buying stakes in promising start-ups across the tech landscape, from Uber to WeWork to a company that used robots to make pizzas.

But those bets have not quite played out the way he has expected.

The Vision Fund later drew criticism for paying top dollar for sometimes questionable start-ups, contributing to a nearly $13 billion annual loss for SoftBank in the fiscal year that ended March 31. (The conglomerate said that the Vision fund has since returned to profitability as of June.)
