Facebook Oversight Board Makes Decision on Trump Ban

Facebook’s oversight board voted to uphold a ban on former President Donald Trump’s ability to post content to his Facebook page, as well as his Instagram account. The decision was made on January 7, following the riot at the United States Capitol carried out by supporters of the president.

The indeterminate ban was triggered by a video posted by Trump in which he echoed the claim that the 2020 election was stolen, but told the protesters at the Capitol to “go home.” On account of violating the platform’s standards, the board agreed to suspend Trump’s pages “indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete,” ahead of President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

The board determined that Trump’s ability to post content should remain suspended for 6 months following the January 7 decision, and left the door open for reinstatement.
