Trump will remain off Facebook for at least two years

Source: Politico

Facebook announced Friday that former President Donald Trump's account will remain suspended for at least two years, setting a timetable for his potential return after its oversight board criticized the company's indefinite ban.

"Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols," Facebook's vice president of global affairs Nick Clegg said in a blog post. "We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year."

The ban: Facebook first suspended Trump's account in the wake of his posts during the Jan. 6 siege on the Capitol, saying his further presence on the platform risked inciting more violence.

2. That will get us through the midterms without

his input on Facebook. Hopefully Twitter will do the same.

6. Supposedly he is banned for life on Twitter already...

No one yet knows where former President Donald Trump will land now that all the major social media platforms have banned him, at least temporarily.

But it won’t be on Twitter, even if Trump runs for president and wins in 2024, according to the company's chief financial officer Ned Segal.

Asked during an interview on CNBC, Segal stressed that permanent means permanent.

“The way our policies work, when you’re removed from the platform, you’re removed from the platform whether you are a commentator, a CFO or you are a former or public official,” he said.

11. Awesome!

It's been so nice not hearing from him for the last six months. Glad to hear it's going to last.

3. Why not a lifetime ban?

Does Facebook really want to allow Trump back for a 2024 candidacy?

4. Where I work, this is causing something of a stir...

...we openly discuss politics and it's actually created a fairly lively working environment. Mostly because we all accept the fact that different people have different beliefs, and that doesn't make them a bad person. Suffice it to say, I'm in the minority with my open support of Biden. Well, someone said today, "So, Facebook is infringing on Trump's 1st amendment rights? And you're OK with that?" So, I politely handed out a life lesson, and explained that the 1st amendment doesn't apply to private companies, so, yea, I was perfectly fine with that. And then I ended with, "I'd say he could start his own social media platform, but we all saw how that ended."

7. Can we keep him off until 2025 please?

He's already fucked things up enough... last thing we need is his shit in the 2024 election. You know that the second he's let back on, he's going to scream bullshit about the election, so it's best to keep him quiet.
