Former United States President Donald Trump, Is now officially suspended from Facebook after he was said to have incited violence on the social media platform earlier this year.
On the allegations, Trump was accused of praising people who were inciting violence, something that goes against the regulations of the popular social media platform.
In a press release, Facebook stated that they will no longer be exempting politicians from making posts unacceptable by their standards, something that was previously being done by Mark Zuckerberg.
For Donald, a two-year suspension was handed down to him as a penalty for his out of character behaviour on the website. The date that Facebook decided to start his penalty from was January 7 when the former US president was accused of starting the insurrection at the Capitol State building, that took the lives of people.
As a bit of leniency, the social platform has granted Trump a 6 month period within which he can decide on what to do with his accounts. According to Facebook, after the two-year span is up and it is seen where the former United States president has been respectful of their standards they will decide on how to proceed.
