Donald Trump will remain banned from Facebook for at least two years, the social media network said. The company said it would reconsider the decision on Jan.7, 2023, but would only allow Mr. Trump’s return if his “risk to public safety has diminished.”
The former president issued a furious response, calling his continued suspension “an insult.” He also threatened to never invite Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to another White House dinner, implying he will run for president again.
“The next time I am at the White House, there will be no more dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife,” the former president said in a brief statement. “That will be all business!”
Others criticized Facebook for not going far enough, saying the ban should be permanent.
Meanwhile, Don McGahn, the Trump-era White House lawyer who was instrumental in Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, testified before the Judiciary Committee of the House after two years of defying their subpoenas. A transcript of the interview will be released within the next seven days.
Republican Representatives Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan told reporters nothing significant was revealed in the testimony.
“We haven’t learned anything new,” Gaetz told reporters.
