Capitol Violence: Twitter bans Donald Trump permanently

Twitter has permanently suspended President Donald Trump’s account after the violence at the Capitol building. The company cited the risk of further incitement in its decision.

Twitter said Trump’s account was suspended “due to the first of future incitement of violence”

Twitter has announced it is permanently suspending President Donald Trump’s personal account, @realDonaldTrump, and the @TeamTrump campaign account following the Capitol violence.

Twitter said late on Friday night that it was banning Trump’s account “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.”

“In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action,” Twitter said in a statement.

Trump calls suspension a ban on free speech

Trump tried to bypass the ban on Friday night by tweeting from @POTUS, the official US government account for the country’s leader.

Trump took to the official @POTUS account to accuse Twitter of “trying to silence me.”

“Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great patriots who voted for me,” he said.

The tweets were subsequently deleted as Twitter does not allow using another account to evade a suspension.
