Facebook just announced a timeline for Trump’s ban on their platform, saying that the ex-President — you know, the one that incited a riot and attempted a take-over of the government — will last two years.
Under the new ban, Trump would be eligible for reinstatement in January 2023, when it will then look to experts to decide “whether the risk to public safety has receded,” Facebook said.
“Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump’s suspension,” Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs at Facebook wrote, “we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols.”
But it won’t be like before, when Trump got away with saying almost anything, under the new guidelines he will be subjected to a set of “rapidly escalating sanctions” if he commits further violations, up to and including the ‘permanent suspension of his account.’
We give him a week.
