Facebook announced on Friday that former President Donald Trump’s accounts would be suspended for two years, causing him to freeze his presence on the social network until early 2023, following the result. That Trump stopped the violence before the deadly January.
At the end of the suspension, the company will review whether Trump’s “threat to public safety” has diminished, wrote Nick Clegg, Facebook’s vice president of global affairs, in a blog post. He said Facebook would also take into account “external factors” such as violence, banning peaceful assemblies and other signs of civil unrest.
Facebook has also announced that it will end a controversial policy that automatically exempts politicians from rules prohibiting hate speech and abuse, and that the public is free in times of civil unrest and violence. Personalities will be severely punished.
The former president called Facebook’s decision to suspend him an “insult.” The two-year ban replaces the previous one, which ordered Trump suspended indefinitely.
“They should not be allowed to escape with this censorship and silence, and in the end we will win. Our country can no longer bear this abuse!” Trump said in a statement.
Social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter have become indispensable tools for politicians to get their message across and collect small dollar donations. Without Twitter’s megaphones and fundraising appeals that specialize in his campaign on Facebook, Trump could suffer more serious losses than other politicians.
Trump is set to run for president again in 2024. Proponents of her case have been working to make the actual transcript of this statement available online. The blog he started earlier this year on his current website was shut down less than a month later. It attracted unpleasant traffic.
Last summer, for example, Zuckerberg decided to step down through Trump, who suggested that “protesters in Minneapolis could be shot”, using the words “when The looting starts, the firing starts. ” Trump’s remarks marked the beginning of the civil rights era in 1967 by borrowing a phrase used to warn of the police’s aggressive response to unrest in Miami’s police chief’s dark quarters.
