Donald trump has been forced to assure "an orderly transition"in the presidency of the United States after the riots in Washington that have resulted in 4 deaths and about 50 arrested. For the first time since the elections, and after spurring protests on Capitol Hill during the inauguration of Joe biden, the still president has promised that he will cede power on January 20.
"Although I totally disagree with the outcome of the elections and the facts confirm me, nevertheless, there will be an orderly transition on January 20. I have always said that we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of the best first term in presidential history, it is just the beginning of our fight to make America great again! "He said in a statement published by one of his collaborators on Twitter, that he has temporarily suspended your personal account, like other social networks.
Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat have deleted the last post and have locked temporarily to Trump, in an unprecedented measure decided on Wednesday after the events in Washington and carried out by supporters of the Republican millionaire.
Twitter, the platform most used by Trump during his mandate and electoral campaign, has blocked his account for at least 12 hours after deleting his last three posts, alleging "risk of violence" and violation of its civic integrity policy.
"As a result of the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, D.C., we have required the removal of three @realDonaldTrump Tweets that were posted today for serious and repeated violations of our civic integrity policy," stated Twitter.
Various political representatives have been those who requested the blockade to Twitter and Facebook, such as the chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce of the United States, the Democratic Congressman Frank Pallone.
The United States is experiencing an emergency situation after thousands of Trump supporters, who participated in a demonstration on their behalf in the American capital, surround the capitol after being incited by the outgoing president, where senators and congressmen were gathered to officialize Biden's electoral victory. They stormed the building, breaking windows and access doors. Before the assault, Trump had addressed his followers, once again ruining the Democratic victory in the elections, with his unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud.
Have dead at least four people in the assault, and local towns have ordered a curfew in Washington. Snapchat developer Snap Inc has also joined the blockade, as has Facebook.
Both this network and YouTube have proceeded to delete a video that, according to Guy rose, President of Facebook Integrity, “contributes to increasing the risk of ongoing violence”. Alphabet has signaled that it will ban appeals to carry weapons across the country and remove any form of support for the assault.
