Trump permanently suspended from Twitter after Capitol siege

2

Twitter on Friday announced it is taking the unprecedented step of banning President Trump from the platform “permanently.”

“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company said in a statement shortly after 6 p.m.

The decision comes after Wednesday’s US Capitol siege in which five people were killed when thousands of pro-Trump supporters unhappy with the election stormed Congress.
