FACEBOOK OFFICIAL: Oversight Board Upholds Decision to Ban Trump

The Facebook Oversight Board decided to make things official Wednesday, upholding the January decision to ban President Trump from the platform indefinitely. 

“The board found that, in maintaining an unfounded narrative of electoral fraud and persistent calls to action, Mr. Trump created an environment where a serious risk of violence was possible,” the board said in a statement. 

However, it found that a permanent ban was inappropriate, requesting that Facebook reach a “proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of the platform.” 

“Within six months of this decision, Facebook must reexamine the arbitrary penalty it imposed on January 7 and decide the appropriate penalty,” the platform said.

The decision comes nearly 4 months after the Big Tech conglomerate went on a witch hunt after Trump, blacklisting him from nearly every platform. Twitter was the first to suspend Trump’s account following the Capitol riot on January 6, and several others - including Facebook - followed suit shortly thereafter. 

But, since his social media ban, Trump has taken to less conventional methods - mostly via email and media appearances - to communicate with his supporters. He even announced the launch of his own social media site Tuesday, which will serve as a blog-like platform where he can freely share updates without censorship, as reported by Human Events News. 

“In a time of silence and lies,” a video Trump posted to the platform - dubbed “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump - says. The video then plays a series of news reports about his ban from Twitter. 

“A beacon of freedom arises. A place to speak freely and safely,” the video continues.” Straight from the desk of Donald J. Trump.”
