Former US President Donald Trump wants social media to be tackled. Those platforms had it removed after Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol in January.
The crowd was convinced, like Trump himself, that he had won the presidential election, not current President Joe Biden.
The internal ‘court’ of Facebook and daughter Instagram ruled on Wednesday that Trump’s suspension was justified, although the so-called Oversight Board did not agree that the suspension was “indefinite”. That is too vague, according to the regulators.
Previously, Twitter and Google subsidiary YouTube had already blocked Trump. “What Facebook, Twitter and Google have done is a total shame to our country. Free speech has been taken away from the president as the radical leftists fear the truth,” Trump said in a statement Wednesday.
He added, “These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price and never again be allowed to destroy our electoral process.”
