Facebook also imposed new restrictions on Donald Trump. The social network said it will prohibit the president from posting on its page for the next 24 hours. The company cited “two policy violations” as the reason for its upgrade.
The company said in a statement: “We have evaluated two policy violations against President Trump Page, which will result in a 24-hour feature block, which means that he will lose his release on the platform during this period. The ability to inform.”
