Capitol Hill: Facebook extends ban on Donald Trump’s account for the next two weeks

A day after, thousands of President Donald Trump’s supporters forcefully entered the Capitol Hill building in Washington D.C. and broke windows, when joint sessions of the Congress was underway to certify President Joe Biden’s victory.

Facebook CEO and Founder, Mark Zuckerberg said, “It has extended the ban on President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for another two weeks until the transition of power completes.”

Mark Zuckerberg in his Facebook post said, “Our platform allowed the President to share his views and messages as we believe that broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But today’s context is different. As President Trump was using our platform to condone rather than condemn the action of his supporters at the Capitol Building.”

“We are extending the block on Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least two weeks until the transition of power completes,” he said.
