The move comes after former U.S. President Donald Trump’s attacks on social media Facebook led to his account being banned from the platform. An assessment of whether Trump is permanently banned will be made within six months.
The Committee expressed support for the ban decision, but felt that an indefinite ban might not be appropriate. Because Facebook was able to get away with some of the responsibilities it should have through this visit.
Trump also expressed outrage at the ban, claiming that his personal freedom of speech had been violated. But Facebook CEO Zuckerberg believes the ban is being implemented to protect the platform, as Trump’s risky comments are dangerous.
The decision to ban or reinstate will ultimately be left to the committee, which is a big and challenging decision.
