Facebook announced Friday that it would maintain its suspension of former President Donald Trump’s participation in the social media site for an additional two years.
The announcement means that the former united states president will be banned until January 2023.
The company responded in a statement after its oversight board announced Trump’s suspension from Facebook and Instagram, but without providing an end date.
It cited the ‘gravity’ of the conduct that got him bumped in the first place, after flagging his repeated claims of election fraud and other issues.
The statement also referenced ‘acts of incitement’ in reference to his comments around the time of the January 6th Capitol riot, when Congress met to certify the electoral votes.
The statement authored by Vice President of Global Affairs Nick Clegg reads:
‘Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols.’
‘We are suspending his accounts for two years, effective from the date of the initial suspension on January 7 this year.”
That means the suspension will remain through the 2022 off-year elections where Trump is seeking to play a significant role
We are today announcing new enforcement protocols to be applied in exceptional cases such as this, and we are confirming the time-bound penalty consistent with those protocols which we are applying to Mr. Trump’s accounts.
But the company warned:
‘When the suspension is eventually lifted, there will be a strict set of rapidly escalating sanctions that will be triggered if Mr. Trump commits further violations in future, up to and including permanent removal of his pages and accounts.’
