Donald Trump's Ban From Facebook Was Upheld Today

Donald Trump will continue to be banned from Facebook, the oversight board ruled today.

However, they said an indefinite ban was unjust and must re-look at the decision again in six months. He was banned after the Capitol riots took place in early January.

The board said, “Within six months of this decision, Facebook must reexamine the arbitrary penalty it imposed on January 7 and decide the appropriate penalty … This penalty must be based on the gravity of the violation and the prospect of future harm. It must also be consistent with Facebook’s rules for severe violations, which must, in turn, be clear, necessary and proportionate.”

The board added about the ban being “indefinite,” “In applying a vague, standardless penalty and then referring this case to the Board to resolve, Facebook seeks to avoid its responsibilities.”

This decision applies to Facebook, and also Instagram. Find out if Trump will ever be back on Twitter.
