Washington [US]June 5 (ANI): Facebook on Friday suspended the accounts of former US President Donald Trump for two years, from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year.
Information about the suspension was shared by Nick Clegg, Facebook’s vice president of global affairs in a blog post.
“Today we announce new enforcement protocols that will be applied in exceptional cases like this, and we confirm the term penalty in accordance with the protocols we are applying to Trump’s accounts. Given the gravity of the circumstances that led Mr. The suspension of Trump, we believe his actions were a serious violation of our rules that deserve the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols.We are suspending his accounts for two years, from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year “. read Clegg’s Facebook post.
Last month, the Supervisory Board confirmed the suspension of Facebook from the Facebook and Instagram accounts of former U.S. President Donald Trump after his praise of people who perpetrated violence on the Capitol on January 6th.
In reaction to the suspension, Trump said next time he will not host dinners for social media tech giants.
“Next time, I’m in the White House, there will be no more dinners, at your request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. Everything will be a thing!”, Trump’s statement said.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote in a post at the time that “the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.” The company has also suspended its account on Instagram, which owns Facebook.
Twitter, on the other hand, has permanently banned Trump from his service and there is no trace of his account.
Earlier, Trump’s communications platform, a blog called “From Donald J. Trump’s Desk,” closed in less than a month after its release. (ANI)
