Facebook Has ‘No Plans’ to Lift Ban on Donald Trump

Facebook Has ‘No Plans’ to Lift Ban on Donald Trump”

The second can be paraphrased as the president noting his intention to skip the January 20 inauguration of his replacement, President-Elect Joe Biden.

Ryan, who chairs the committee that oversees Capitol Police funding, criticized the department for its failure to hold people back.

The decision to permanently suspend Trump's account comes after supporters of the President stormed the US Capitol building ahead of Biden's confirmation as the victor of last year's elections. Hashtags used to refer of the election being fraudulent or inciting protests or violence are being redirected to the site's community guidelines page in many instances.

There is a growing risk for tech companies, especially social media, that Congress will attempt to collar them after last weeks rampage in Washington, D.C.

The social media platform's decision comes days before Trump leaves office and well after a good deal of damage that culminated in a deadly insurrection by his followers at the U.S. Capitol earlier this week had been done.

Facebook's Trump ban is a marked shift for Zuckerberg, who has previously taken a far more laissez-faire stance to dealing with Trump's most inflammatory posts and numerous lies. Trump ends his speech that the U.S. is the honor of my lifetime.

"By withholding our content from these services for one month, we hope that you will have fewer interruptions to your day and will spend less time looking at social media apps", the group said. A Twitter rep said Trump's account has deleted the three violating tweets but did not say when the president may be reinstated. "I continue to strongly believe that we must reform our election laws to verify the identity and eligibility of all voters, and to ensure faith and confidence in all future elections".

Biden said Vice President Mike Pence would be welcome at his inauguration. "In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action".

Sandberg went on to say that such a move by Facebook shows "that not even a president is above the policies we have".
