Facebook has suspended Trump’s accounts for a period of two years.

Former US President Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts have been banned for two years by Facebook Inc.

In January, he was banned indefinitely from both platforms in the aftermath of remarks he made about the US Capitol riots, but Facebook’s Oversight Board slammed the indefinite ban last month.

Mr Trump’s activities were described by Facebook as “a serious breach of our standards.”

Mr Trump called the measure a “insult” to the millions of people who voted for him in the presidential election last year.

Facebook’s action coincides with the expiration of a policy that exempted lawmakers from certain content moderation regulations.

It said that politicians would no longer be immune from false or abusive materials because their opinions were noteworthy.

According to Facebook’s vice-president of global affairs Nick Clegg, Mr Trump’s ban was effective from the day of the original suspension on 7 January.

“Given the seriousness of the circumstances that led to Mr Trump’s suspension, we think his conduct constituted a serious breach of our rules that warranted the most severe punishment possible,” the statement said.
