Facebook’s independent Oversight Board ruled to uphold the company’s January decision to suspend the Facebook and Instagram accounts of former President Donald Trump.
The decision will ensure Trump remains blocked from posting or having a presence on the social media company’s services.
Facebook first suspended Trump’s accounts following the Jan. 6 insurrection on the U.S. Capitol. The suspension was Facebook’s most aggressive action against Trump during his four-year term.
“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” Facebook CEO MarkÂ ZuckerbergÂ wrote in a post on his Facebook page at the time.
Do not be complacent. GOP states are suppressing votes, Trump is returning to Facebook, and Tucker Carlson is spewing venom.

Facebook will announce whether they will allow Donald Trump to return to their site – but the Marxists running BLM have already issued a threat to the social media giant to prohibit Trump from the website for life.
This is what totalitarianism looks like.
