‘An insult’ – Trump lashes out after Facebook slapped him with two-year ban

Facebook on Friday suspended former President Donald Trump for two years, after which it said it would consult experts to determine whether “the risk to public safety has receded,” and make a call on Trump’s return.

The social media giant however warned that Trump’s Facebook and Instagram, if reinstated, would face a “strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions” if he violates the company’s rules again after being reinstated on Jan. 7, 2023.

Trump’s accounts on Facebook and Instagram were frozen the day after the attack on the U.S. Capitol for his role in the invasion, Facebook said.

“When the suspension is eventually lifted, there will be a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions that will be triggered if Mr. Trump commits further violations in future, up to and including permanent removal of his pages and accounts,” Facebook’s vice president of global affairs and communications Nick Clegg said Friday.

Facebook added that Public figures who foment violence during periods of civil unrest could face penalties ranging from one-month to two-year suspensions, the company said.

Reacting, the former president condemned Facebook’s decision, saying it’s an insult to him and his millions of supporters.

“Facebook’s ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75 (million) people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election,” he said in a statement.

“They shouldn’t be allowed to get away with this censoring and silencing, and ultimately, we will win. Our Country can’t take this abuse anymore!”

He later added: “Next time I’m in the White House there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It will be all business.”
