Donald Trump called the suspension “an insult” to the millions of Americans who voted for him in the 2020 presidential election.

Facebook announced on Friday that the suspension of the Facebook and Instagram accounts of former US President Donald Trump will be extended for two years.

Trump had already been indefinitely excluded from both social networks in January as a result of the publications he made about the assault on the US Capitol, which occurred during the certification of the results of the November 2020 elections, in which the Democrat won. Joe Biden.

But in May, Facebook’s Oversight Board criticized that the sanction against Trump was indefinite.

Facebook said on Friday that the actions of the former Republican president were “a serious violation of the rules” of the platform.
