Banned by Facebook For 2 Years, Trump Calls it an ‘Insult to 75 Million People

Former US president Donald Trump said his two-year ban by Facebook was an “insult” to voters, renewing his false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him.

His reaction came after Facebook on Friday set its ban on him for two years, saying he deserved the maximum punishment for violating platform rules over a deadly attack by his supporters on the US Capitol.

The two-year ban will be effective from January 7, when Trump was booted off the platform, and comes after Facebook’s independent oversight board said the indefinite ban should be reviewed.

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 vice president of global affairs Nick Clegg said in a post.
