In two years a new decision – Facebook’s decision follows the assessment of its Supervisory Board which, last month, criticized the former president’s suspension without expiration. “Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Trump’s suspension, we believe that his actions constitute a serious violation of our rules that deserves the greatest penalty. We suspend his accounts for two years, starting with the date of his initial suspension on the 7th. January of this year, “says Facebook. “At the end of this period we will assess whether the risk to public safety has decreased. If we determine that the risk is still high we will extend the restriction for a period – adds Facebook -. When the suspension is lifted there will be a series of sanctions that will be triggered in the should Trump commit further violations in the future, including a permanent removal of his pages and accounts. “
Trump: “Facebook insults 75 million people” – Facebook’s decision “is an insult to the 75 million people who voted for us in the rigged 2020 presidential election.” Donald Trump states this by criticizing social media for having suspended it for two years and referring to the votes it has obtained. Speaking of censorship, Trump observes: “Our country can no longer bear this abuse.”
Facebook: no more special treatment for politicians – Facebook has announced the end of all favorable treatment on its platform for i
policy makers. From now on, the same rules will apply to all users. “In evaluating content of information relevance we will not treat those posted by politicians in a different way from that of anyone else”: “we will apply” the same yardstick to “all content, measuring whether the value of the public interest has greater weight than potential risks of leaving “the content online, says Facebook.
Hard blow to his candidacy hopes – A hard blow for the former president, also banned from Twitter. A blow capable of compromising the ambitions of a tycoon who still cherishes the hypothesis of a new descent into the field for the US presidential elections of 2024. And even if this were not the case, Trump is still determined to exert all his influence on vote, also on that of the mid-term elections of 2022, when a large part of the American Congress will be renewed.
