Since tweeting to supporters who threatened the US Capitol, Donald Trump has been removed from Twitter and Facebook.
In a post to demonstrators on social media, he said “I love you” before telling them to go home.
He repeated misleading statements about electoral fraud as well.
For “severe violations of our Civic Integrity policy,” Twitter said it needed the removal of three tweets.
The company said the president’s account, if the tweets were not deleted, would stay locked for good.
“It went on to say that “Future breaches of the Twitter rules… would result in the @realDonaldTrump account being permanently suspended.
That means the days of Donald Trump on Twitter may be numbered.
The president is not remembered for paying any attention to the community guidelines of Twitter.
Meanwhile, Mr Trump was blocked for 24 hours by Facebook. YouTube deleted the video as well.
We removed it because, on balance, we believe it adds to rather than reduces the likelihood of ongoing abuse,” Facebook said.”
His supporters stormed the U.S. government headquarters and fought with the police, causing one woman to die.
The violence brought the congressional debate over the election victory of Democrat Joe Biden to a halt.
Republicans have been questioning the certification of November’s election results in the House and Senate chambers.
President Trump had told an audience at the National Mall in Washington before the attack that the election had been robbed.
Hours later, he appeared on camera and reiterated the false assertion as the violence mounted inside and outside the US Capitol.
He said “I love you” to the demonstrators and identified the people who stormed the Capitol complex as “patriots.”
YouTube said it pulled the video because it “violated election fraud propagation policies.”
Initially, Twitter did not take the video down, but suppressing the opportunity to retweet, like and comment on it and another message.
It later eliminated them, however, and suspended the outgoing president.
