Facebook Bans Trump for Two Years, Critics Push for Legislation Against Censorship

https://www.visiontimes.com/2021/06/08/facebook-bans-trump-for-two-years-critics-push-for-legislation-against-censorship.html On June 4, Facebook announced that former President Donald Trump would be suspended from the platform for a period of two years and that his account would only be reinstated “if conditions permit.” Trump and other Republicans criticized the censorship move as an attack on free speech. Trump’s #Facebook account was initially blocked by the platform on Jan. 7, a day after the Capitol breach. In May, the Facebook Oversight Board upheld the decision but stated that it was “not appropriate for Facebook to impose the indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension.”
