Donald Trump banned from Facebook and Instagram until Joe Biden takes office

Outgoing President Donald Trump has been banned from two major social platforms until Joe Biden takes office.

He was banned from Facebook and Instagram after violent riots in Washington DC.

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced the decision.

Both platforms are owned by Facebook.

Last night, major social media outlets curtailed Trump’s post when unruly mobs stormed the Capitol.

Twitter restricted the president’s video urging the crowd to go home, but reiterated false claims that the election had been “stolen” from him.

The platform blocked likes, retweets and replies to the video, citing concerns about a risk that led to violence.

Twitter later deleted some of its tweets that were posted that evening as authorities battled to retake the Capitol.

Four people are dead after yesterday’s violence, which President-elect Biden called an “insurrection”.

The leader called on Trump to order the masses to withdraw and told them they were not demonstrators when he condemned the “attack on democracy”.
