Facebook utestenger Trump fra Instagram og Facebook for alltid. Risikoen er for stor, sier Mark Zuckerberg.
«We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,» Zuckerberg said in a statement Thursday. «Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.»
Facebook reagerte på at Trump ikke ville slutte med å påstå at valget ble stjålet fra ham, og dette finner ikke Zuckerberg seg i.
The president’s account was suspended after posting a video telling protesters who stormed the Capitol Building, erupting in violent protests that led to multiple deaths, to «go home,» while maintaining that the 2020 presidential election was «stolen» from him.
Zuckerberg synes han har rett til å diktere hva USAs president skal gjøre, og mener han har rett til å disiplinere ham.
Zuckerberg, in the statement, said that the «last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.»
