Facebook announced Friday that former President Donald Trump is suspended from its platform for two years.
“We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year,” Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs for Facebook, said in a blog post.
Why would he want to? I agree it was wrong to kick him off...
But if some asshole won’t invite me to his party, I don’t fight to be allowed entrance.
For more commentary on this :
Personally, I'd prefer that Trump not run in 2024, but rather use his influence to push someone younger who will advance conservative policies without unapologetically. But either way, Trump shouldn't give them Facebook the satisfaction of thinking they are in control of his fate.
Facebook’s server farms should be destroyed and Facebook put out of US business permanently.
They have to ask Trump to come back nicely now.
Oh please ! Don’t throw me in that briar patch !
Trump relishes being BANNED !
I didn’t know Trump had a Facebook page, I thought he had twitter.
Were it 1776 I wouldn’t give a plug nickel for Jack Dorsey or Zuckerberg’s lives. Sic Semper Tyrannis.
What happened to all that big talk about ‘We gotta break up the Social Media Giants! They are just too powerful!”
I have heard nothing about new laws being passed or even present laws being enforced that would effect these groups.
No chance he is allowed to rejoin before 2024. They banned him until Jan. 2023, until right after the midterm. This is no doubt to try and minimalize his impact. I guarantee if he announces a run in 2024 FB will extend his ban until, at least, after the election. If he is undecided, they will extend his ban “just in case”.
Since Trump lives in Florida, can he test DeSantis’s new law?
They’ll just extend the ban when the date gets close.
I want President Trump to run and when he secures the nomination announce that Facebook is banned from participating in any debates he is in. In fact, he should announce a ban on those debates period. He doesn’t need them and they only serve to enrich the corrupt media. Best to time it for when they have already outlayed money to maximize the damage to them.
To paraphrase Kirk,
“Why does Trump need a Facebook?”
The main stream media has said that Facebook is a platform for Trump to fundraise though it is just one of many platforms.
BookFace could very well be dead and buried in 2 years.
I think the new Florida law is about social media platforms banning politicians. For non-politicians, Floridians can sue social media platforms but civil lawsuits can drag on for years (see Nicholas Sandman’s suit against CBS, ABC, etc). So unless Trump officially is running for political office from Florida, Trump may not sue Facebook.
it certainly could be
however the folks who want to donate to Trump, will donate to Trump, facebook or no facebook
