Facebook suspends Trump accounts for two years

Facebook has suspended former US President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts for two years.

He was barred indefinitely in January in the wake of his posts following the US Capitol riots, which Facebook said severely violated its rules.

Last month, Facebook’s Oversight Board criticized the open-ended penalty.

Meanwhile, Mr. Trump says the move by Facebook is an insult” to the millions who voted for him in last year’s presidential election adding that his followers should not allow Facebook to get away with this censoring and silencing.

The social media giant is also ending a policy shielding politicians from some content moderation rules. It said it will no longer give politicians immunity for deceptive or abusive content based on their comments being newsworthy.
