President Trump fired-back at Facebook Wednesday after the social media giant extended its ban of the ex-Commander-in-Chief for at least three months.
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, and others booted the 45th President of the United States for allegedly inciting a riot at the US Capitol on January 6th.
“What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country. Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before. The People of our Country will not stand for it! These corrupt social media companies must pay a political price, and must never again be allowed to destroy and decimate our Electoral Process,” posted the President on his new webpage.

ANOTHER EXCUSE: Hillary Questions Legitimacy of 2016 Election, Says Race ‘Stolen’ From Her
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued her worldwide excuses tour over the weekend; directly questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 election and saying the race was “stolen” by Donald Trump.
The former Secretary of State was speaking alongside her husband Bill Clinton in Los Angeles when she made the stunning remarks.
“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” said Clinton.
Clinton has routinely blamed her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump on a series of external factors; including the FBI, the DNC, Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, the New York Times, Facebook, Google, racism, sexism, Fox News, and more.

BAN REMAINS: Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Donald Trump’s Ban After Review
The Oversight Board at Facebook decided to uphold Donald Trump’s ban from the platform Wednesday morning, but hinted his suspension may not be permanent and could be removed in the months ahead.
“The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the board announced Wednesday morning.
“Facebook cannot make up the rules as it goes, and anyone concerned about its power should be concerned about allowing this,” the board said in a statement. “Having clear rules that apply to all users and Facebook is essential for ensuring the company treats users fairly.”
“Facebook’s normal penalties include removing the violating content, imposing a time-bound period of suspension, or permanently disabling the page and account,” the board said Wednesday, insisting that Facebook “review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform.”
“While the same rules should apply to all users, context matters when assessing the probability and imminence of harm,” the board said. “When posts by influential users pose a high probability of imminent harm, Facebook should act quickly to enforce its rules. Although Facebook explained that it did not apply its ‘newsworthiness’ allowance in this case, the Board called on Facebook to address widespread confusion about how decisions relating to influential users are made.”
