Breaking: Facebook Suspends Donald Trump for Two Years

Facebook announced Friday that it would maintain its suspension of former President Donald Trump’s participation in the social media site for an additional two years – until January 2023.

The company responded in a statement after its oversight board announced Trump’s suspension from Facebook and Instagram, but without providing an end date.

It cited the ‘gravity of the conduct that got him bumped in the first place, after flagging his repeated claims of election fraud and other issues.

The statement also referenced ‘acts of incitement’ in reference to his comments around the time of the January 6th Capitol riot, when Congress met to certify the electoral votes.

‘We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year,’ the company said.

We are today announcing new enforcement protocols to be applied in exceptional cases such as this, and we are confirming the time-bound penalty consistent with those protocols which we are applying to Mr Trump’s accounts.

But the company warned: ‘When the suspension is eventually lifted, there will be a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions that will be triggered if Mr Trump commits further violations in future, up to and including permanent removal of his pages and accounts.’

‘In establishing the two-year sanction for severe violations, we considered the need for it to be long enough to allow a safe period of time after the acts of incitement, to be significant enough to be a deterrent to Mr Trump and others from committing such severe violations in future, and to be proportionate to the gravity of the violation itself,’ the company said.
