Facebook’s Oversight Board released its decision to uphold the ban against former President Trump Wednesday, admitting it “violated its own rules.”
Trump is still banned from Facebook and Instagram.
“The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the board wrote.
Nick Clegg, the vice president of Global Affairs and Communications for Facebook, said “we believe our decision was necessary and right, and we’re pleased the board has recognized that the unprecedented circumstances justified the exceptional measure we took.”
The board admitted the indefinite timeframe of suspension “was not appropriate,” adding they will review the decision in coming months.
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes slammed Facebook for its decision.
“Who wants to be a part of any online community that hates Christians, Conservatives or anyone who wants to make America great again?” the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” host asked.
The news comes as Trump rolled out a new communication platform Tuesday, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump.”
