Trump banned from using Facebook and other social media

The social media giant is reportedly blocked Donald Trump from using Facebook, Instagram and other accounts.  This will extend until the completion of a handover takeover of power with Joe Biden.

Facebook Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg said  on Thursday that President Trump will be banned indefinitely.

This comes amid  escalation of the conflict between Silicon Valley and the White House after Trump weaponized the web to instigate a mob at the U.S. Capitol.“

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” says Zuckerberg .

“Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.”

It has been noted that Trump among other issues used social media to peddle falsehoods and to attack his critics.
