Trump still banned on Facebook

President Donald Trump

A panel formed by Meta Platforms determined that the Facebook ban was reasonable at the time, but that the company should reconsider its action in six months.

Despite fervent support of the former president, by upholding Facebook's ban on former President Donald J. Trump, a panel of journalists, activists, and attorneys hired by Meta (Facebook) ended Trump's instant comeback on mainstream social media and reignited the debate over tech's control over online speech.

A majority of those polled continue to disagree with the Facebook ban.

A 'wannabe' judicial body overseeing Facebook's content choices determined that it was correct to ban Mr. Trump from its platform following the uprising in Washington in January, stating that he had "established an environment where a real danger of violence was possible" Consistent risk "supported" the measure, the panel said.
