Donald Trump Banned from Facebook “Indefinitely”

Zuckerberg de-platforms the President
Donald Trump

CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook and Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, have banned President Donald Trump from both platforms “indefinitely.”

The announcement comes after Trump-supporting protesters stormed the U.S Capitol in an attempt to stop Congress from confirming the 2020 presidential election results.

In a Thursday Facebook post, Zuckerberg wrote, “The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden. His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence. Following the certification of the election results by Congress, the priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.”

Zuckerberg claimed that Facebook has been rather “lenient” with Trump in regards to what he posts on the social media platform.

“Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech,” Zuckerberg said. “But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”

Zuckerberg said that the “risks” of allowing Trump to post on social media right now are “simply too great.”

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

    Well, I would like to say that that stinks and is censorship. This poor poor man. I want to share something with you. I used to be the Executive Director of a group named C.O.P.S. Which stood for Citizens Opposing Political Suppression. Our slogan was “sometimes there’s justice. Sometimes there’s just us.”Now this is years ago because I’m an old fart now. But I know for a FACT that in Pennsylvania, at least my neck of the woods, voting fraud is rampant. We were checking into voting which we thought was shady. There was a lot of the same addresses for people. We took a ride to find that the people who were voting were actually deceased and the idiots who were posing as these dead people were using the address of the cemetery where they were buried. We helped all kinds of people who were getting screwed with government. I must say that I am a very discouraged. If the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES couldn’t get anyone to listen to him what chance do we have. This was a rigged election pure and simple.

    This is so wrong for Zuckerberg to ban President Trump from Facebook! For God’s sake, he is still our President! So much for wanting the feelings between Democrats and Republicans to improve! So much for trying to work across the isle in Congress. President Trump did not encourage or incite the violence at the Capital on the 6th of January. He asked them to March to the Capital so their voices would be heard and to do it peacefully. These type of actions from FB, Twitter is censorship and to do it to our President is the lowest action I’ve ever seen. President Trump has worked harder and continuously for the American people, but it seems like Facebook will censor and punish any Republican. I call that communism and you cannot take our freedom of speech away. All that will do will be you inciting more anger against you! We Republicans will not kneel down to socialist and communist censorship!

    Give our President is voice back, NOW!!

    You are pathetic, and I stand by our president Donald Trump. He in no way is responsible for the what had happened. He even has said that those that did the wrong they did should be punished and do not represent his ways. He is not a danger, those that tried to hurt this man at every turn have failed. And God will protect him for he does more for our God than those that slander him. You wish you could be half of what this man has become. He is not ruled by anyone but our Mighty King in heaven. Think on that.

    I don’t really get on Facebook but maybe 1-2 times a weeks, mainly read relatives & friends, might post a comment here are there. Since Twitter cancelled Trump, looks like I will be cancelling my Twitter & Facebook accounts!

    Right after Trump become President, I become aware that the media, Dems, etc would not treat him fairly & would lie and/or exaggerate what President said or did, so the only way for people to hear or read the truth was directly from President Trump was through HIS Twitter, Facebook or videos from Trump!

    Zuckerberg blocks Donald Trump without proof he had anything to do with the fiasco. Will Zuckerberg reinstate Trump and offer an apology if he banned him if he had nothing to go with it.

    I doubt he would have the intestinal fortitude.

    Just how is it Mark Zukerman’s right to censor a sitting President. Does he think he is above that office with his billions of dollars that he put in to the Democratic party and to help design the software through a discreet company to derail our democratic electoral system. No one trusts our voting system now or our right to vote. It is a sad day when we derail TRUE DEMOCRACY!! It is a Sad, Sad time for the United States. I myself am looking at leaving this country and I fought for it.

    What ever happens the blood is on the hands of the demonicRATS. The hands of the state legislatures, the state and federal courts and the corrupt judges and most importantly the supreme court. Those pieces of shit disenfranchised over 70 millions Americans. All they had to do was investigate and either prove DT is wrong or if he was right. But no. I hope more don’t happen. Now they want a peaceful transition of power. Then they move to remove Trump from office. Pretty peaceful HUH.

    I feel that it has been unjust to what has been happening to Donald Trump from the first day he took office.
    I news reports what they want to keep everything in an upstir.
    I feel what happened at the capitol building had nothing to do with Donald Trump! The people who did this did it on their own. And I also feel that they weren’t Trump supporters in the first place. They were meant to believe they were.
    I support Donald Trump and I will always support him. He deserves a medal for what he has done for this country!

    Dear Mr. President Trump, I don’t blame you for not going either. I would not go myself, if it were me. I believe in you, I always have. It is a disgrace what has happen. We here in Wisconsin have proof about getting many mail in ballots, that should of never been mailed to people. One man receives 7 at his house. And another woman received one for her dead mother of 10 years. Now they didn’t make this up. That alone is reason enough to cause a PROBLEM or doubt. All the people they got to stand behind them are fools and they will fine out soon enough, that Mr. Biden will either prove to us all that what he promises, will all be lies or he will fall ill and have to give up to being president, so that Harris would go in for him. Biden has had many years in politics, to have planned a scheme like this all to happen. I just can’t accept that so many people have fallen to their bullshit. It has cause many families to fight each other. It has tore up cities and businesses and homes. I hope and pray something good comes out of this to the people like me, who have done nothing wrong. I predict that there will be many people who will not acknowledge Mr. Biden as President. And we can’t blame them for doing so. I know! Why can’t we have two sections of government, !/2 of the U.S. be Republicans and 1/2 of the U.S. Democraps (oops). We both can have our own President, and live our own way, and let us be all happy. I would give it 6 months, and they will all want to come over to our side. But they won’t be invited. Yes that would be great. Just make sure our line to divide us, will include Upper Michigan and Upper Wisconsin. because this is God’s Country up here! it truly is. We are very kind and smart. And we still help each other here for no money exchanged. The amount of love and friendship means everything here. And at the end of the day, that’s what counts anyway, right? Thank You Mr. President, Sincerely Luann A. Cutaiar
