Twitter has suspended the account of US President Donald Trump following a series of tweets that were said to incite violence which led to the Capitol Hill invasion yesterday, December 6, 2021.
One of the tweets read: “These are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly & unfairly treated for so long. Go home with love & in peace. Remember this day forever!”
He also tweeted: “Mike Pence (US Vice President) didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country…”
The microblogging site suspended him for twelve hours.
Facebook on the other hand, deleted Trump’s posts and said he will not be able to post on Facebook or Instagram for the next 24 hours because his posts, on balance, contribute to “rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence,” Vice President of Integrity Guy Rosen said earlier Wednesday.
