Former United States President Donald Trump has responded to the confirmation of his expulsion for two years from the social network Facebook with a message addressed to his CEO, Mark Zuckerberg , with whom he promises to break all friendship when he returns to govern the country. “The next time I am in the White House I will not celebrate the dinners that his wife and he used to ask me. We will only talk about business,” Trump said in a statement.
Facebook will maintain Trump’s suspension for a minimum of two years
Trump has called the suspension an “insult” to those who voted for him during the “rigged elections” in November last year, insisting on his unfounded theory of electoral fraud. “They should not be allowed to get away with this censorship and silence,” the former president added in the note.
The mogul was suspended from both Facebook and Instagram after the company’s content advisory council temporarily canceled his profiles on these social networks, considering that he was responsible for the January 6 violence episodes in the Capitol .
Conditional return in 2023
Facebook, which also owns Instagram , has explained this Friday that Trump will be able to reactivate their profiles as of January 2023, after analyzing the company to verify if their presence in these networks continues to put public safety at risk . “We will assess external factors, including instances of violence, restrictions on peaceful assemblies, and other indicators of civil unrest.
If we determine that there is still a serious risk to public safety, we will extend the restriction for a specified period of time and continue to reassess until that time. risk has decreased, “the company explained in a statement.
Facebook closed Trump’s account after he encouraged his followers to march to the Capitol, with a controversial speech in which the New York tycoon questioned the legitimacy of the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the November 2020 elections.
That of Facebook was not the only veto he suffered, since he also stayed out of Twitter , a social network that he used before and after arriving at the White House to expand the reach of his message. This confirmation comes days after Trump shut down one of the platforms he had been using.
