Facebook blocks Trump's account for 24 hours

Thursday, 07. January 2021 03:01

Facebook Inc. decided to block the account of United States President Donald Trump for 24 hours after it deleted his video in which he addresses the violent protests in Washington DC. The social media giant said the video "contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence."

"We've assessed two policy violations against President Trump's Page which will result in a 24-hour feature block, meaning he will lose the ability to post on the platform during that time," the company said. Twitter has also asked Trump to delete three of his tweets and locked his account for 12 hours.
