Facebook to decide Donald Trump’s ban today

Facebook Inc’s Oversight Board today (Wednesday) will decide whether to uphold the company’s indefinite suspension of former United States President, Donald Trump, in a much-awaited verdict that will determine how the company will treat rule-breaking world leaders in the future.

Reuters reports that Facebook indefinitely blocked Trump’s access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts over concerns of further violence and unrest following the January 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of the former president.

At the time of the suspension, Facebook Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg said in a post that “the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”

The company later referred the case to its recently established board, which includes academics, lawyers, and rights activists, to decide whether to uphold the ban or restore the former president, Trump.
