Former US President Donald Trump described his decision to remain closed for some time as “a shame and an embarrassment.”
Former US President Donald Trump made a written statement after the Facebook Supervisory Board decided to keep Facebook and Instagram accounts closed for some time.
Trump described the actions of Facebook, Twitter and Google as “a complete shame and embarrassment for our country,” and said:
“Radical left psychopaths have been stripped of the American president’s freedom of expression because they fear the truth, because the truth is always bigger and stronger.”
In a sign that the public will not remain silent about the situation, Trump has given a message that these corrupt social media companies must pay a political price.
It should never be allowed to spoil or infiltrate our electoral process again.
Bad news for Trump from social media: His account will be closed for a while
Facebook and Instagram blocked Trump accounts “indefinitely” after the January 6 Capitol raid in the United States.
“We believe the stakes are enormous in allowing the president to continue using our service during this period,” said Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
Later, Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube also permanently shut down Trump’s accounts.
Also today, Facebook’s audit board announced that it will continue its policy of keeping Trump’s account closed for some time.
