Facebook is still not lifting Donald Trump’s ban, but it’s not over yet


In addition to Mark Zuckerberg’s company, even YouTube maintains blocking the former president’s channel, and for security’s sake, Twitch has also blocked it.

The 46th President of the United States has been Joe Biden since January 20, 2021, so accordingly, on the day of his inauguration, Donald Trump left the White House permanently. However, the positions of the Facebook and YouTube executives have not changed regarding Trump, so they continue to uphold the former president’s ban on the sites.

In addition to these two platforms, Trump was also banned by Twitter, but the microblogging did not specify a time interval, immediately deciding on a final ban. On Wednesday, a spokesman for Twitch also announced that the former president will not be given the floor in their forums as there is a danger that he will again call on his supporters to commit violence.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg last issued an official announcement on Jan. 7 about Donald Trump’s indefinite ban.

According to NBC sources, community site management will continue to support this decision, as Trump’s ban will not be lifted under current plans. This is not changed by the fact that Trump is no longer the president of the USA, ie his influence has been significantly reduced, and compliance with Facebook’s rules applies to all users.

YouTube originally suspended Trump’s channel until the day of the change of presidency, but the ban will last for at least another week.

CNBC and Bloomberg sources also maintain the ban on the video-sharing site, and in the future it could easily be that the former president will also receive an indefinite or permanent ban following the decisions of Twitter and Facebook.
